You may bring in your jewelry for appraisal at any time. You will normally be asked to leave it with us so our appraiser can thoroughly examine, describe and value each item. If you leave fewer than three to five items, you may pick your jewelry within four to five business days. Larger appraisals, of more than five items, normally require a longer period of time and may take up to three to four weeks. Appraisal charges are based upon the amount of time involved; we will give you an estimate before any work is done. Appraisal documents consists of a copy for you, with complete descriptions and photographs of all your jewelry, and a copy for your insurance company.
Our American Gem Society accredited laboratory offers our customers the most complete jewelry identification and appraisal services possible. Our lab is staffed by AGS Certified Gemologists and Certified Gemologist Appraisers who are examined annually by the Society on new developments in the fields of gemology and appraising.
