Colored gemstones (such as rubies, sapphires, and emeralds) may have been treated to improve their look, through methods such as heating and oiling. These methods are accepted by the international jewelry trade but may make the gemstone less strong and/or require special care over time.

For jewelry sales, all estimates are based on the information in any gemological report or, if no gemological report is available, you should assume that the gemstones may have been treated or enhanced.

Almost all clocks and watches are repaired in their lifetime and may include parts which are not original. We do not give a warranty that any individual component part of any watch or clock is authentic. Watchbands described as “associated” are not part of the original watch and may not be authentic. Clocks may be sold without pendulums, weights, or keys.

As collectors’ watches and clocks often have very fine and complex mechanisms, you are responsible for any general service, change of battery or further repair work that may be necessary. We do not give a warranty that any watch or clock is in good working order. Certificates are not available unless described in the Sale Particulars.

Most watches have been opened to find out the type and quality of movement. For that reason, watches with water resistant cases may not be waterproof and we recommend you have them checked by a competent watchmaker before use.

Gorgeov’s sells retail vintage items and collectibles, all secondhand luxury handbags. The availability of products showed in Gorgeov’s is updated based on our stock. All Luxury handbags purchases/biding are subject to the availability of the handbags.

We do not buy or sell counterfeit, replicas, or any item that its authenticity is questionable to our experts. Besides, we never replace parts or materials from our items to keep their original value.

During each authenticity check, our expert authenticators look for the following:

Any indicator that the bag may be counterfeit. This includes checking the stitching, material and leather tests, inspection of the stamp(s), hardware examinations, and other indicators that are specific to the brand and style of the bag.

Any indictor that authentic parts of the bag have been tampered with. During examination, our experts also check to see if any original parts or aspects of the bag have been replaced with counterfeit or cheaper parts. For example, a Hermès Birkin bag may be authentic, but the previous owner has replaced the original lock with a cheaper or unofficial one.

Any signs of wear, tear, or other damage. Each scratch, mark, scuff, or other sign of damage is carefully noted by our team of experts. This allows us to list the bag with an accurate and genuine description.

Every single bag and accessory listed on Gorgeov’s has gone through our authenticity check and been examined by our in-house experts.

Lots are sold “as is”, in the condition they are in at the time of the sale, without any representation or warranty or assumption of liability of any kind as to condition by Gorgeov’s or by the seller.

Any reference to condition in the Sale Particulars or in a condition report will not amount to a full description of condition, and images may not show the condition of a lot clearly. Colors and shades may look different on the screen to how they look on physical inspection. Condition reports may be available to help you evaluate the condition of a lot. Condition reports are provided free of charge as a convenience to our buyers and are for guidance only. They offer our opinion, but they may not refer to all faults, inherent defects, restoration, alteration or adaptation because our staff are not professional restorers or conservators. For that reason, they are not an alternative to taking your own professional advice. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have requested, received and considered any condition report.

The tax and customs rules in Spain will be applied by Gorgeov’s when lots are sold.

For intra-Community purchases, i.e., from buyers outside Spain but resident in the EU, VAT will not apply.

For buyer’s resident outside the EU, no VAT will be applied on export.

2-In the case the lot is sold by Gorgeov’s from one of its representative offices outside Spain, Gorgeov's will follow the tax rules of the country from whose representative office the sale was made.

Gorgeov’s recommends you consult your own independent tax advisor with any questions.

In the event of the export of property acquired from Gorgeov’s, in accordance with the applicable tax and customs rules, the sale will be able to benefit from a VAT exemption. The tax administration considers that the export of the acquired lot must occur within three months of the sale.

The buyer must, within this time, indicate in writing that the lot acquired is intended for export and provide a delivery address outside the EU. In all cases, the buyer must pay an amount equal to that of the VAT that would be paid by Gorgeov’s in the case of the non-export of the lot within the time required by the Spanish tax and customs authorities.
