after <strong>the</strong> sale, to determine <strong>the</strong> successful bidder, to<br />

continue <strong>the</strong> bidding, to cancel <strong>the</strong> sale or to re<strong>of</strong>fer<br />

and resell <strong>the</strong> item in dispute. If any dispute arises<br />

after <strong>the</strong> sale, <strong>the</strong>n Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers’s<br />

sale record is conclusive.<br />

J) SUCCESSFUL BID AND PASSING OF RISK<br />

Subject to <strong>the</strong> auctioneer’s discretion, <strong>the</strong> highest<br />

bidder accepted by <strong>the</strong> auctioneer will be <strong>the</strong> buyer<br />

and <strong>the</strong> striking <strong>of</strong> his hammer marks <strong>the</strong> acceptance<br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> highest bid and <strong>the</strong> conclusion <strong>of</strong> a contract<br />

for sale between <strong>the</strong> Seller and <strong>the</strong> Buyer. Risk and<br />

responsibility for <strong>the</strong> lot (including frames or glass<br />

where relevant) passes immediately to <strong>the</strong> Buyer.<br />

property is identified in <strong>the</strong> catalogue.<br />

The warranty is subject to <strong>the</strong> following:<br />

i) it does not apply where a) <strong>the</strong> catalogue<br />

court to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that part<br />

shall be discounted and <strong>the</strong> rest <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> Conditions<br />

shall continue to be valid to <strong>the</strong> fullest extent<br />

permitted by law.<br />

14. Resale Royalty Scheme<br />

Under <strong>the</strong> legal obligations <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> Resale Royalty<br />

Scheme for Visual Artists Act 2009, sellers must<br />

provide <strong>the</strong> following information to comply with<br />

<strong>the</strong> act:<br />

The seller:<br />

i) acknowledges that he or she understands his or<br />

her legal obligations under <strong>the</strong> Resale Royalty for<br />

ii)<br />

iii)<br />

iv)<br />

<strong>the</strong> Act, including by providing its agent, <strong>the</strong><br />

compliance with sections 28 and 29 <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> Act;<br />

undertakes to indemnify <strong>the</strong> company for any<br />

loss incurred by <strong>the</strong> company as a result <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>the</strong> vendor’s failure to comply with any <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong><br />

vendor’s legal obligations under <strong>the</strong> Act; and<br />

acknowledges that if he or she fails to comply<br />

with any <strong>of</strong> his or her legal obligations under<br />

<strong>the</strong> Act, <strong>the</strong> company may provide <strong>the</strong> vendor’s<br />

15. Jewels & Watches<br />

GEMSTONES<br />

Gemstones have historically been subjected to a<br />

variety <strong>of</strong> treatments to enhance <strong>the</strong>ir appearance.<br />

Sapphire and rubies are routinely heat treated to<br />

improve <strong>the</strong>ir colour and clarity, similarly emeralds<br />

are frequently treated with oils or resin for <strong>the</strong> same<br />

purpose. O<strong>the</strong>r treatments such as staining or dyeing,<br />

irradiation, filling or coating may have been used<br />

on o<strong>the</strong>r precious and semi-precious gemstones<br />

and organic material. These treatments may be<br />

permanent, whilst o<strong>the</strong>rs may need special care to<br />

preserve <strong>the</strong>ir appearance. Buyers should assume<br />

that each lot has been subject to some form <strong>of</strong><br />

treatment and that <strong>the</strong> estimates reflect this.<br />

A number <strong>of</strong> laboratories issue certificates that<br />

give detailed descriptions <strong>of</strong> gemstones, and in<br />

<strong>the</strong> event that Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers has<br />

been supplied with or obtained certificates for any<br />

lot, this shall be noted in <strong>the</strong> catalogue. However,<br />

as <strong>the</strong>re may not be consensus between different<br />

laboratories on <strong>the</strong> degree, or types <strong>of</strong> treatment<br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> gemstones, Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers<br />

supplies <strong>the</strong>se without warranty.<br />

Buyers should assume that all gemstones sold by<br />

Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers may have been<br />

subjected to such treatments, and that <strong>the</strong> catalogue<br />

estimates reflect this.<br />

PEARLS<br />

Pearls, like gemstones, are also subject to various<br />

treatments. Buyers should assume that any pearls<br />

sold by Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers may have<br />

been subjected to such treatments, and that <strong>the</strong><br />

catalogue estimates reflect this.<br />

WATCHES<br />

Please note: All watches sold by Gibson’s<br />

Auctioneers & Valuers are sold on an “as is”<br />

basis. Gibson’s Auctioneers & Valuers makes no<br />

representation or warranty that any watch is in<br />

working order. Many watches have been repaired<br />

over <strong>the</strong>ir lifetime and may contain non-original parts.<br />

The absence <strong>of</strong> any reference to <strong>the</strong> condition <strong>of</strong> a<br />

watch does not imply that <strong>the</strong> lot is in good condition<br />

and without defects, repairs or restorations. Buyers<br />

should be aware that a general service, change <strong>of</strong><br />

battery or fur<strong>the</strong>r repair work, for which <strong>the</strong> Buyer is<br />

solely responsible for, may be necessary.<br />

ESTIMATED WEIGHTS<br />

If a stone has a known weight, it has been weighed<br />

out <strong>of</strong> <strong>the</strong> mount. If a stone has an estimated weight,<br />

it is an approximate weight only and has been<br />

measured by us in <strong>the</strong> mount and is a statement <strong>of</strong><br />

opinion only. The information is given as a guide only<br />

and Buyers should satisfy <strong>the</strong>mselves with regard to<br />

this information as to its accuracy.
