Appraisals are written documents regarding the value of a piece of jewelry for Estate or Insurance purposes. All appraisals are done on premises using the most up to date equipment and methods. To schedule an appraisal you can drop the item(s) off, and we will keep the piece(s) for a short amount of time in order for our in-house GIA Graduate Gemologist can take time to evaluate your piece in complete detail. Appraisals do take time to complete. An appraisal of a single piece of jewelry may take anywhere from thirty minutes to a few hours, dependent upon the intricacy of the piece(s). Price quotes for appraisals are not done over the phone due to the fact that appraisals are based on time. In order to give you an accurate and informed price quote for each item, we ask to see the item(s) before giving you a direct quote.
If you have any questions on our appraisal services, please call us at (518) 456-6800.
