Insurance Appraisal

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.

Service, service, service! Had a custom gold pendant handmade for my partner. David worked diligently to remain within my budget and timelines and far exceeded my already high expectations. I will not go back to franchise stores again after receiving this level of quality and service with the same, if not far better, prices. Consider Conger’s and stop in before heading elsewhere. I highly recommend and will definitely return come engagement time!read more

I came to Conger’s looking to create a custom engagement ring. The process went smoothly and David was very knowledgeable and helpful during the ring design and gemstone section. The prices were reasonable compared to other jewelers around Ottawa. Would highly recommend!read more

I went to Conger’s Jewelers after I had inherited a large gem collection from my grandmother. As a masters student in environmental studies I had no knowledge of gems. He sat down with me on two occasions to examine the gems and to provide guidance of what to do with them. He suggest I send a couple of them off to have them tested and appraised. I just received those appraisals today and I couldn’t be more happy with how things worked out. The person he recommended for the appraisals did a fantastic job. I wouldn’t have known where to go without his help. I had a great experience.read more

A couple of months ago I came to Conger’s to have a custom engagement ring made using a stone from my mother’s old ring. However, I wanted to wait until I popped the question before posting this review just in case. Dave made the whole process of designing a ring from scratch painless. He’s very knowledgeable about his work, and was very easy to work with to get the perfect result! Both my fiancee and I love the ring he made, and would recommend his services to anybody. Can’t wait to visit Conger’s for a custom wedding band to match!read more
