This kind of buy scares me. I did some selling for a jeweler and its a pretty precise thing. They look at every piece to determine its value. And it takes some education to get good at it.

Well, your buying blind.
The auctions don't say whether the metal is 18 14 or 24
and there are no measurements of stone size or quality.

I forget the lingo but each stone has a quality number assigned.
as well as a size.

Yes, pass on it unless you are willing to gamble.

thanks for the advice as you are the only one replying ;)
i placed a bid on it and i plan to purchase a lot of 6
with shipping each piece comes around $25 and i've searched each piece by itself on ebay and its listed by the same selling selling each piece at around $245 each. maybe i can easily sell for like 100?

Liquidation.com may be allright if you live in the USA but For myself in Canada, I find them to be a complete ripoff. I recently purchased some watches from them and they charged me $100 for shipping, actual cost $19.95, they charged me $150 for a documentation fee and then UPS nailed me with an extra $147 for a brokerage fee. On top of that one item was not as described, one item was missing and they refused my dispute with them and went ahead and paid the seller.
I will never deal with them again.

I have never bought from liquidation.com because of the outrageous shipping costs.
