You’ve found the perfect ring. You’ve bought your significant other the jewelry of your dreams. Or you’ve just inherited a special family heirloom. The next step isn’t as glamorous as giving or receiving a special gift, but it’s crucial for your piece of mind for years to come: the appraisal.
Frequently asked questions about appraisals
What is a Jewelry Appraisal?
A formal document describing your jewelry (usually with accompanying photographs) that contains an opinion on the quality and value of your jewelry.

Does my jewelry leave the store?
No. Your jewelry stays in our hands until the appraisal is complete.
How long does a jewelry appraisal take?
Appraisals typically take about 10 days to complete, sometimes more during the holidays.
