by wjm457 » Dec 3, 2001 Recently, My wife took a ring into a local jeweler for repair. I bought this ring for her about 15 years a go from this very jeweler,though I don't think he remembers. It was the first piece of nice jewelry I was able to buy and it means alot to her. The appaisal is 4200. We left the ring with him with the understanding he would do the repair himself. He sent it out and now it is lost. We haven't started negotiating yet and I'm trying to arm myself with info on how to proceed and what I can expect. I would appreciate any help you could provide.
