Now, if I didn’t know about James Avery pieces, I would have made the mistake of selling this dolphin ring for $14.99. However, this was a retired ring (no longer in production), which sold on 1-24-14 for $54.99 plus shipping. Not bad considering I bought it for a buck. That’s a profit of $46 dollars, after selling fees. That is a big difference from the normal price I would have sold an unknown maker’s ring for, $14.99. It pays to find out about the makers when you can read the mark.
