Our onsite staff includes a graduate gemologist from the renowned Gemological Institute of America as well as a coin appraiser. Collectively they bring 50 years of experience with many different types of jewellery, gold, diamonds, gemstones, and currency from all over the world. If you are looking for an appraisal on your jewellery for insurance purposes we can offer that service and most times while you wait. The prices that are used to value your items are according to the current market value of any precious metal, diamonds, and gemstones. Most estate evaluations are done while you wait and may take some time depending on the size of the estate and the availability of the appraiser; most time these are completed verbally on the spot so that you can see the value for each item. If you are looking to simply see what an item may be worth or if it is genuine, feel free to come in any time, no appointment required and we can give you information verbally right on the spot at no charge.
Many times these types of appraisals take only minutes to complete and you can sit with our gemologist or coin appraiser in our office while the appraiser completes the required measurements and calculations needed to complete a certified appraisal. Another option is to leave your item in our hands that we keep secured in our safe so that we can take the extra time necessary to complete a certified appraisal.
This is just a small list of information about appraisal services that we offer, please feel free to contact us if you are wondering if we can assist your needs.
