Auctions offer the promise of a bidding war but they can be risky. You won’t know what the final price is until the hammer comes down.
What you take home is always less than the announced price. Why? Because you must deduct both the buyer and seller premiums. These premiums are over 35%! You'll pocket only 65% of the “sold” price.
If you want a firm and final price with a low transaction cost call or send a photo of your rare and valuable item to Nelson Rarities.
You always get more for your valuables at Nelson Rarities.
We can tell you many stories where items were mispriced by the auctioneer and their appraiser. These moments represent an opportunity for us to buy quality pieces at a discounted price.
This does happen. Don’t risk having your rare and valuable jewelry, precious stones and designer works of art mispriced. We encourage you to work with people who know and love the rare and valuable. People who will price your valuables accurately.
Work with us in the way you feel most comfortable. You can choose to contact us by phone, arrange for a virtual evaluation, arrange for an in-office meeting or make an appointment for an in-home meeting.
