    ho acquistato un braccialetto antico romano con perline, ma si è trattato di un oggetto moderno, privo di certificazione. Dalla bolla di accompagnamento non si capisce nemmeno che è il venditore!

  • Delivery was good, I doubt this is a genuine Roman ring. the size for a child and the bronze gets lighter when rubbing it.
    Also the certificate is not from an expert or institute but pdf from seller

  • First certificate was not satisfying. Seller corrected it, but only after several requests. So I have changed my feedback from negativ to neutral.

    First we waited for 10 days and sent you several messages for more info. After you supplied your specific demands we sent you a revised version the following morning. Some people are impossible to please.
