Appraisal Services


Standard appraisal services done while you wait and watch.  

Retail replacement value, Fair Market value, Liquidation value, and the myriad of subcategories of these three major appraisal types including:  Insurance, Divorce, Taxation, Damage, Theft.

Many online retailers will allow us to receive a diamond, colored gem or a fine item of jewelry on your behalf before you pay.  If you are local, then you can come see the item in person. However, most of our customers are distant from us, and we are fully accustomed to handling their concerns, too.

Quality reports for selling jewelry.

Do you want to sell some item or items on-line yourself? Whether you are a dealer with hundreds of items that need professional descriptions or a consumer who wishes to sell only one or a few items of jewelry, you need to begin with a report that contains proper and legal gemological descriptions along with expert assessment of metal purity, and mounting characteristics.  You just can’t hope to sell a costly jewelry item with less than a professional description.  Let us do this work for you and it will help YOU sell the jewelry successfully.  Note: These reports are undated, so they do not expire or appear out of date.  While dollar values can change, the condition of jewelry which is not being worn is very stable.  We don’t dictate value or recommend using inflated appraisal reports to help sell jewelry.  Your asking price or your reserve price is for you, the seller, to determine.

Consultant in the sale of Diamonds, Jewelry and Colored Gems

If you are contemplating the sale of your diamonds and jewelry, I can assist you with market knowledge.  Jewelry, diamonds, and colored gems are blind value items that you must understand before deciding how much to accept for them.   Remember, you can only sell an item one time, so don’t make a mistake you will regret over and over.  Knowledge vastly increases your financial return, and costs very little to obtain. Don’t make a far more costly, impulsive mistake in selling before you understand the value.
