Einkaräter Diamant bewerten

29 März 2007

Sandmann hat Folgendes geschrieben:

Ich habe von hochwertigem Schmuck fast keine Ahnung und möchte Euch auf diesem Weg um einen kleinen Rat fragen: Es steht die Anschaffung eines klassischen Einkaräters an, und dabei geht es ja um viel viel Geld. Mir wird die Tage von einer bekannten Juwelierkette in D ein Angebot gemacht und ich möchte auf dieses und die folgenden Gespräche etwas vorbereitet sein.

Das ist immer gut.

Sandmann hat Folgendes geschrieben:

Es geht um einen 1ct Brilliantring, klassische Kronenfassung (sechseckig), der Ring selber 585er Weißgold, schmal und eine kleine Größe.

Der Stein soll mind. VS Reinheit haben und W Wesselton sein. Auf jeden Fall sollen die Einschlüsse nicht gleich sichtbar und möglichst hell sein. Eine akzeptable Proportion und Gleichmäßigkeit sind auch wichtig.

Wenn die Reinheit des Diamanten bei vs liegt, kann man die Einschlüsse auf keinen Fall mit dem freien Auge sehen.

Sandmann hat Folgendes geschrieben:

Ist es realistisch ein solches Stück für 5000-5500€ zu bekommen? Wohlgemerkt bei einem dt. Juwelier mit allen Zertifikaten usw. Ich möchte den Juwelier nicht ruinieren, aber eben auch nicht mehr als nötig bezahlen, ich denke Ihr versteht mich.

Der Juwelier wird das schon zu verhindern wissen. Smile Der Preisbereich ist von Dir im untersten Bereich aber gerade noch realistisch eingeschätzt.

Sandmann hat Folgendes geschrieben:

Ich würde mich sehr über eine kurze Einschätzung freuen und es würde mir beim Kauf ein besseres Gefühl geben.

Vielen Dank schon mal und Grüße in die Runde

Sandmann

Schu Dir einmal als Alternative die Diamantbörse mit Diamanten aus privater Hand an. Da sind sehr viel günstigere Angebote vorhanden. Und bei allen Diamanten sind aktuelle Gutachten entweder vorhanden oder können dazubestellt werden. Ein Diamant Brillantschliff 1,11 ct /Vsi /H gut/gut für 3.916,- Euro ist derzeit auch im Angebot. Einen Ring mit Fassung kann man natürlich extra bestellen, das muss nicht die Welt kosten.

Härteres Silber als 925er Sterling

27 März 2007

Auf der Suche nach Eheringen wurde Folgendes geschrieben:
Hallo!
Meine Freundin und ich werden um Juli in Köln heiraten. Auf der Suche
nach passenden Ringen sind wir seit gestern gut informiert über
Gelbgold, Rotgold, Graugold und deren Zusammensetzungen mit
Palladium, Kupfer und Silber. Wir möchten 2 gleiche Ringe ohne
jegliche Verzierung, ca. 8mm breit, 1,6-2mm stark, mattiert und innen
und außen wahrscheinlich leicht bombiert.Sehr schönes Modell, Ihr wisst aber schon das die Mattierungen auch nicht lange halten. Nach 3 Monaten sieht ein ehemals mattierter Ehering genau so aus wie ein ehemals polierter Trauring.
schmolke001 hat Folgendes geschrieben:Allerdings gefällt uns von allen Metallen die Farbe des Silbers am
besten. Ein Goldschmied, bei dem wir waren, sagte uns, dass
Sterling-Silber einfach zu weich sei und man mit einem solchen Ring,
den man jahrelang jeden Tag benutzt, wegen der vielen zu erwartenden
Stoß- und Kratzschäden keine wirkliche Freude haben werde. Ich trage
bereits seit 8 Jahren fast durchgehend einen 4mm breiten Daumenring
aus 925er Silber und verstehe was er meint.
Rhodinieren sei auch keine Alernative, da diese aufgetragene Schicht
ebenfalls durch die starke Belastung verschwinden und den Ring
fleckig machen würde.
Er sagte auch, dass es neben Sterling Silber auch noch andere
Legierungen gäbe, diese aber nicht härter seien..

Ja, Legierungen, die einen höheren Kupfergehalt haben, werden geringfügig härter allerdings werden die Farben „kälter“, das warme weiß des Silbers verliert sich und zusätzlich oxydieren diese Legierungen schneller. Ihr bekommt schwarze Finger.
schmolke001 hat Folgendes geschrieben:Nach ein paar Recherchen im Netz vermute ich, dass es mit
Juweliersilber und Münzsilber Legierungen gibt, die wegen des höheren
Kupfergehalts eigentlich härter sein müssten. Nun endlich meine
Fragen: a) gibt es sie und sind sie härter? b) weichen sie in der
Farbe weniger vom Sterling Silber ab als z.B. 750er oder 585er
Graugold und
Es gibt immer noch 585 Weißgold mit Nickel und Kupfer gut legiert und poliert. Das ist sehr schön weiß und fest. Wenn man hier die galvanische Untervernickelung (unter Rhodium) weglässt dann gibt es auch keine Allergien.schmolke001 hat Folgendes geschrieben:
c) gibt es denn auch – im In- oder Ausland – Schmiede,
die mit diesen Materialien Ringe herstellen?
Natürlich, man soll nur danach fragen. Dann gibt es noch etwas interessantes:
Eine 585 Platin/Palladium/Kupfer Legierung. Sehr schön weiß, fest und nicht so teuer wie 850 Platin/Iridium, das ebenfallls sehr weiß und fest ist. Nicht zu verwechseln mit dem populären 950 Platin/Cobalt, das etwas dem 585 Gold/Palladium Graugold ähnelt.
schmolke001 hat Folgendes geschrieben:Vielen Dank für die Hilfe und mit freundlichem Gruß aus Köln,
Wolfgang Schmolke

Diamanten und Edelsteine als Anlageform

09 März 2007

Eine Kundin schrieb:
Sehr geehrter Herr Butschal,

also, was würden Sie zu dem von Ihnen angebotenen Smaragd (1,4….ct mit österr. Gutachten) als Wertanlage sagen – geeignet oder nicht geeignet?
Des weiteren würde mich der schöne (blutrote) Rubin „reizen“, ebenfalls zur („vorerstigen“) Wertanlage… geeignet oder nicht?Auch wenn Sie Brillianten (Diamanten) zwischen 2 und 5 (max. Farbe J, Reinheit si) ct in Kommission haben oder bekommen, bin ich (nach wie vor) an einem Angebot interessiert.
Sehr geehrte Frau ……,die von Ihnen ausgesuchten Steine sind sehr günstig im Preis – Wertverhältnis. Und gerade bei Rubinen ist aufgrund der Mangelsituation bei Steinen in guter Farbe ab einem Karat ein Preissschub gut denkbar.Als Wertanlage sind solche Steine eher schwierig gewesen weil der Wiederverkauf zumindest in der Vergangenheit, als es das Internet noch nicht gab, in Notzeiten kompliziert und nur mit Abschlägen möglich war. Das wird sich ändern aber wir haben natürlich noch keine Erfahrungswerte für Notzeiten.Gerade weil jede zukünftige Krise ja unvorhersehbare Werteverschiebungen haben wird, ist eine Streuung und natürlich ein „gegen den Strom schwimmen“ für die Wertsicherung unabdingbar.Ein Streuung in verschiedene hochwertige Edelsteine ist auf jeden Fall da schon ein Weg, weg von den klassischen Anlageformen und daher ein richtiger Weg.
Mit freundlichen GrüßenHeinrich Butschal

Großer Alexandrit

06 März 2007

Vor kurzem hatte ich die Gelegenheit einen Alexandrit Rohkristall von ca. 600 Gramm Gewicht zu untersuchen.
Die Kristalle, die von aussen einsehbar sind, zeigen einen guten Farbwechsel von sattem Grün bei Tageslicht auf violettrot bei Kunstlicht. Mit dem Mikroskop betrachtet zeigen sich nur wenige Wachstumslinien, so das auf eine guten Ausbeute für facettierte Edelsteine zu hoffen ist.
