Experts at identification and evaluation
We assist many of our clients who are struggling to deal with quantities of jewelry; often as part of an estate or trust that is to be divided. If you need help separating or making sense of inherited or bequeathed jewelry, maybe a triage consultation is what you need. Mary’s depth of knowledge of historical and stylistic periods in jewelry fashion can often provide a context to help clients place inherited jewelry with specific relatives or family history. We can separate fine jewelry from costume jewelry and/or help you make groupings of similar value characteristics. We won't be able to provide specific values during the consultation; but we can discuss what you're trying to accomplish and if an appraisal is called for, we can help you decide which pieces should be examined more closely. In situations in which the jewelry is unwanted, we can help with converting it quickly and easily into cash with our BROKERING SERVICE.
