In addition to appraisals we also offer jewelry consultations. This basic information is what many people seek to determine if further documentation is needed. A consultation may be the first step taken to separate fashion (costume) jewelry from fine jewelry in an estate settlement or to determine which pieces in your jewelry collection need to be insured.
Although not an appraisal, since no value is determined and no written report is prepared, this advice is given in conformity with the standards of the American Gem Society.
Please call for an appointment. There is no charge for the first five minutes. Thereafter the fee, which includes working with two AGS Certified Gemologist Appraisers, is $200.00 per hour with a $50.00 minimum.
