AuctionMarketResource.com has added the ability to research a piece of jewelry by the carat weight of its primary stone. The feature enables users to search by jewelry item, type, signature, and era as well as carat weight. Pictures of available rings, complete with auction dates, will appear so that the appraiser can access the appropriate time frame.
AuctionMarketResource.com is an online database containing current auction sales price information and related gemological data on more than 6,000 jewelry items, gemstones, pearls, and diamonds, both colorless and colored.
