What Makes Luxury Accessories Valuable?
There are several factors an appraiser looks at in determining the auction value of an individual item.
Designer: Is the luxury item attributed to a particular designer? We are particularly interested in designers such as Hermes, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent, VBH, Celine, etc. We do not usually take items that are unsigned. Although they can be expertly crafted and beautiful, the secondary market is driven primarily by designer bags.
Condition: Items that are new or in pristine condition have the highest value.
Materials: What is the item made of, an exotic skin? Leather? Does it have precious materials in the construction, such as metals or stones?
Rarity: Was this a custom order piece? Or part of a limited edition?
