Jewelry Appraisal, Consultation & Brokering Services

Frequently Asked Questions

We are experts, here to answer your questions

Do you charge for an appraisal?

Yes.  We only have our time to sell, so for any of our valuation or consultation services you should expect to be charged.  Businesses that primarily purchase jewelry will sometimes refer to the process of making an offer to buy your jewelry as an “appraisal”.  It isn’t.  An appraisal is an unbiased, evidence-based valuation for a specific purpose, as of a specific date, that is based on researched market data that is analyzed and formulated into a report prepared by a trained, experienced professional valuation specialist.
