Appraisals at GOVBERG’S – Suburban Square, Ardmore, PA:
$200 for the first item. $95 for each subsequent item. There is a 9 item limit.
We have enjoyed a long-term, fully independent, relationship with Govberg Jewelers located in Suburban Square Shopping Center, 65 St. James Place, Ardmore, PA and near Rittenhouse Square, 1521 Walnut St., in downtown Philadelphia. Govberg’s has a well-earned reputation for integrity and sufficient insurance along with the expertise to properly safeguard your items. They can handle any needed re-finishing, stone replacement, re-mounting or repairs while your jewelry is in their possession. Items initially left in the downtown store will be returned to downtown for pick up. Both stores have convenient hours beginning at 10am Mon-Sat and closed Sunday. Either location will take in your work, but all our appraisal work is currently performed at their Ardmore location.
For those clients who have single items or small groups of less than ten pieces total, we travel two to four times per month to Govberg’s Ardmore location. We do all our work on-site. You may leave your item(s) as little as a day before our scheduled arrival. You may pick up as soon as we have examined the items or later, at your convenience. You may also schedule to meet me in the Ardmore store and observe while I appraise your items while-you-watch.
Our goal is a most professional job. We take pride in work which is correctly done and worth the necessary cost.
