These guys are in my opinion crooks. I purchased a piece of art work after they said it came with a COA. They sent me a PDF but never sent the original COA and said it was my responsibility to contact the appraiser to get it. When I stopped payment on my credit card because they would not provide an original COA, they threated to put a lien on my house and report me for mail fraud. Run away from this auction house as fast as you can. I had a buyer for the artwork and he backed out of the deal because I did not have an original COA.

So in about 2 years, my wife has worn her ring, bought from AuctionKing a total of 2 times. The diamonds fall out constantly! I have gave a bad review when I purchased it, but I am just at a loss of words. How can a company continue to screw people and still be in business? There are far too many bad reviews for all these people to be lying. How do you not stand behind what you sale? You guys manipulate your bids and still sale bad products. It is too late for me, but people please do your research before you make a purchase from this company.

I have been dealing in jewelry and watches with AuctionKing for 3 years. We are very pleased with our purchases. We understood from the beginning, the appraised value is the highest given for insurance purposes. I am a Financial Advisor, and I tell my clients never to insure for the Appraised Value. Insure for a used, replacement value. Here is what I found at all Auction Houses, be careful when you buy. Dealers buy at these offered at Auction Houses and then double the price to sell retail. Check the appraisal. I suggest for jewelry, to keep to the G-H colors and go no lower than SI2 clarity. You can go to I1-I2, if you are happy, good, but I2 will be hard to resell. I have found AuctionKing consistent with other Auction Houses in all their products and services. When you are going to an Auction, you have to study, and learn, to get a good deal. I often will bid, and then stand back, and watch the bidding go far too high. I just watch then. Noticed too, last weekend, everyone was chasing the bracelets and no one was interested in the rings. Sometimes, it is the other way around. So, last weekend, I got a fantastic deal on a ring, actually, two fantastic ring deals. Rings, not the highest in quality, but far, far less in cost than ever be found at a retail jewelry store. It is a great experience, sometimes you make a mistake, you loose some money, as my late father in-law said, that mistake is just tuition towards your education.

These people running this company are a bunch of scammers and it’s hard to believe that they are able to keep running this place the way that they do.
So I purchased a ring awhile back with an appraisal of 10 grand i got it for 1500$, the ring fell apart only a few days of having it, I took the ring to more then one gemologist to get it appraised and they both come back with around the same amount far,far less then what auction King said it was appraised at the ring was pretty much worth what I paid for it 1500$ I contacted auction king ( of scammers) and told them my situation and got the run around they said they didn’t do refunds and it’s purchased as is. One thing that I did have in my favour is the crappy made ring fell apart right when I got it so I started a dispute with my credit card company and after a month of written emails between auction kings and myself auction king lost the dispute because of all my proof and pictures on how crappy the ring was made.
I worn anybody thinking about bidding from this site is to stay away and go to a reputable place to spend your hard earned money.
And if anybody feels this review is not accurate I have no problem providing the pics and emails between me and this company showing how they really do business.

Bought 2 paintings last year after being told they came with COA"s.After they arrived there was no COA/appraisal. I contacted them and they said they would mail them to me. It took 5 months of back and forth emails to finally get them after I threatened to call the Tampa police, FBI and USPS. I just bought another painting this month and again it came without the COA. I emailed them and demanded they send it within 10 days. They have not acknowledged my email, so now I have conctacted my credit card and put it in dispute. This way I get to keep the painting until they send me the COA and they are out of the money I paid. Stay away from these lying, scamming, low lifes.

Terrible company. You request information several times, they NEVER respond, then when they do they are rude and accusatory and STILL do not supply the information. Most likely because they are a sham

Won an item, very happy with it. But they also sent me a box of chocolates with the order! Very considerate of them, I appreciate it very much.

Auction king company cheats and uses computers to manipulate prices. The system pre-sets the lowest price. Therefore, the customs never get a real bid unless the bid passes their lowest price.
I won two bids below their preset price, the computer changed the price after the lot expires, and destroyed my bid,
Review by Nokubonga Wasaiwalla1 year ago
Their jewelry is way over valued. A local appraisal indicated an actual (retail) worth of 10% of what Auction King's appraiser said it was worth.
Try to bid on coins? All the bids get pushed up past what the coins are actually worth. Are they ghost bidding the auctions out of sight?
The jewelry is junk, the coins are overbid, and I would not trust them with anything brand name (Cartier, Chanel) to be authentic.
AIG(L) has horrible reviews online, and Westfield Jewelry Appraisers is a phantom online. No reviews anywhere. No signatures on their "appraisals", nor does it even resemble an actual appraisal by a certified gemologist.

I use a lot of different auction websites, and I can say that Auction King is by far my favorite. I bought a Chanel handbag and diamond tennis bracelet, and both were shipped to me immediately and were as beautiful as they looked in the photos. Thank you Auction King for making this such a fun experience! I will 100% be participating in more live auctions in the future to buy myself and other's gifts in the future.

“I just wanted to share a quick note and let you know that your company Auctionking do a really excellent job. I have been dealing with them for more than a year. I’m glad I decided to purchase from your firm instead of shopping in the mall or on the internet. I have nine nurses and on birthdays and holyday I purchase gifts for the nurses and some to my patients.
Auctionking has a superb and great selections of items, such as jewelry coins , painting purses and many other high standard quality items. . The items are of high quality and can be purchased at a very reasonable price. It is very convenient and the staff and their manager dealt with me professionally. They were meticulous efficacious and their delivery was expeditious. You purchase the item and next day is at your step door. The items are sent expeditiously in a very well packaged gift boxes.
It is a great pleasure to deal with this Auctionking company. They make you feel at ease and will answer your questions ASAP. Thank you Auctionking for your great service.

I enjoy finding something that I can afford and maybe win the bid. Everything I have received is beautiful.
My only complaint is that I spend way too much time on Auction King!
Review by Josepoon1 year ago
This is a scam. Links are very sensitive, you end up buying something you don't want and your choice is high debt or collections.
Review by Joredders Donnis1 year ago
Nice site, easy registration...The items they offer seem high quality & unique across all price ranges...The ring I purchased shipped very quick & is simply gorgeous! The VS quality diamonds are better than expected!...Also their item descriptions are lengthy & highly detailed, crucial when purchasing jewelry from a static photo. Auction king is a very trustworthy online auction, don't hesitate to join, Thanks Auction King for the beautiful ring!

I have being buying at Auction King for almost 2 years. I work with a lovely woman, Brianna, who makes everything perfect for me. She knows that I am a little larger than the customary 17’ necklace and 7.5’ bracelet and always makes sure to tell me, and if needed fix the item at no additional cost. It is a real pleasure to buy at Auction King and Brianna is who makes it special,
Review by Ozuk2 years ago
I had won a few lots and my mom passed away so I was short on cash for the fewloys however in good faith I called and paid for the 2 recent lots. Then lady from auctioning tells me oh I understand no problem. Then she says I'm gonna help you out Mr Lord and I'm gonna help you out and put it all on one invoice and I'll get the 2 lots mailed. This was Friday so fast forward to Monday I called to find out if the 2 lots were mailed and she says. Oh no there was a discrepancy everything is on one invoice and that I'd have to pay 15% of the ticket.i told her but Friday you said it would be in mail. And gave me the run around all day today when I said I need to speak with the manager. So yes buyer be ware. It's obvious they don't want me to get the 2 lots and see how much I'll be upset and probably not buy the rest of the 3 lots. Either way tomorrow I am stopping payment.

Buyer Beware on Jewelry purchases. Auction Kings claim their jewelry is appraised at a very high value, but they're not. Won a ring appraised at $8800, spent $1700 on it. Within a day of getting it, a diamond fell out. Contacted them, had to send away to get fixed. Once ring came back, it was worn only 3 times and another fell out. Went to a gemologist and got a real appraisal, to find out the ring is only worth $2000 not the $8800. The diamonds that they used for the sides of the ring, are worthless. All the Jewelers we brought our ring to stated they couldn't even order such a low grade diamond. Contacted Auction King and they were unprofessional and smug. Stating that they look at what they "think the ring should be worth". That is not a real appraisal. Thank god it all happened as soon as we got the ring so we could get our money back through our credit card company. If they weren't out to scam, then our conversation with them would've been completely different. Most repreable businesses would apologize and refund. Not them, they chose to fight about it. That's how they get their money. Life lesson: if it seems too good to be true, it is. Just walk away.
