How It Works

Appointments are booked on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you prefer, you may drop pieces off at our store for a later pickup. All appraisal work is done on-site.

Education, integrity and decades of expertise stand behind our appraisal service.


For all-risk jewellery insurance coverage, we recommend a professional jewellery appraisal by our experienced GIA Graduate Gemologist. The evaluation is a report which details the components of your jewellery and concludes with a Retail Replacement Value. It includes a photograph of the item and the expert credentials of the appraiser.

Estate / Probate

For Estate and Probate purposes, jewellery should be evaluated for its Fair Market Value. A qualified jewellery appraiser will research the marketplace and create a report that will stand up in a court of law if challenged. 

Divorce Settlement

Jewellery evaluations are often needed for divorce settlements in order to divide property up equitably. Fair Market Value is determined in these instances.
