I would really appreciate an opinion on this one. There was an auction on Catawiki today – emerald beads necklace. I wanted to bid on this item (https://auction.catawiki.com/kavels/32312223-4-wires-handmade-emerald-necklace-round-beads-polished-191-g-1), but I was really surprised that there is no reserve price on this kind of lot. I mean, it is 191 grams of natural emeralds! I know that emeralds are expensive. So, I believe it should cost much more than the winning bid of 150 EUR, right? What is wrong with this item, if anything? I kind of trust the auctioneer’s opinion who approved the lot for an auction, but the price seems to make no sense… Or maybe I got it all totally wrong.
Thank you in advance!
