Despite top expertise: “Bares for Rares” seller is refused the dealer card

Despite top expertise: “Bares for Rares” seller is refused the dealer card
Written by insideindyhomes

A very special case caused both enthusiasm and disillusionment at “Bares for Rares”. The devil was in the details, so a possible sale had to be negotiated.

Such splendor has expert Dr. Nor does Heide Rezepa-Zabel in front of her magnifying glass every day. Beate Grabl-Harms brought a magnificent ring to “Bares für Rares”, which she had inherited from her mother. The highlight of the ring was the diamond on it, which the expert classified as “Fancy Intense Orange”. Even in treated condition, the piece of jewelery could fetch 4,000 to 5,000 euros and thus exceed the seller’s desired price. Beate Grabl-Harm actually wanted 3,500 euros and was visibly pleased with the price. But why was there no money in the end?

dr Heide Rezepa-Zabel thought it possible that the diamond could also be untreated, in which case it would be worth up to 18,000 euros. Beate Grabl-Harm could hardly believe what she was hearing, but there was a crucial catch. To really find out if the stone was untreated, it would have to be examined under a microscope. That’s only possible in a laboratory, according to the experts.

Better to go to the lab: Horst Lichter doesn’t pull out the dealer card

Under these circumstances, Horst Lichter did not want to give the seller a dealer card. First of all, it has to be clarified in the laboratory whether the diamond has been treated or not, after all there is an enormously high sum in the room that should be confirmed in an expert opinion.

Beate Grabl-Harms didn’t really know what to do with this decision, but Horst Lichter made her an offer. As soon as the report is available, the seller can simply come back. In any case, we keep our fingers crossed that it is actually an untreated diamond. If that is the case, a potential buyer should already be in the starting blocks in the form of jewelry retailer Susanne Steiger. You can see what you need to know about the dealer in the video.

“Bares for Rares” runs on weekdays at 3:05 p.m. on ZDF, the offshoot ZDF Neo broadcasts repeats at 10:45 a.m. and at 7:20 p.m. The concept has not changed to this day. People like Beate Grabl-Harms have their exhibits evaluated by experts and then haggle the price in the dealer’s room.
