Gemmological Descriptions
All dimensions and estimated weights of gemstones have been determined without removing the stones from the setting the stones are in, therefore, only approximate because of limitations imposed by the mount. The weights are normally calculated by applying standard formulae to the measurements taken.

Diamond quality grade assessments, which are approximate, are based on comparison with known stones. The elements that comprise the grade can be estimated only, because of limitations imposed by the mount.

Gemmological descriptions are based on testing carried out by standard gemmological equipment without unsetting the stones. Whilst O'Reilly’s is reasonably satisfied that all such descriptions are correct, no responsibility can be assumed if subsequent unsetting and testing disproves these opinions.

Any article which incorporates pearls has been valued according to the opinion expressed, i.e. cultured, natural. Unless otherwise stated, none have been subjected to testing by X-ray to confirm this opinion.
