Why get your Jewelry Appraised?

The number one reason most people decide to get their jewelry appraised is for their homeowners insurance. Just in case of loss or theft it is recommended to have an appraisal if the value is over $500.00 or at least every three years.

An accurate and detailed jewelry appraisal will provide you with the information necessary to understand the true value of your jewelry.

What is a GIA?

GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is a nonprofit gem research institute dedicated to protecting the public by providing education and objective, unbiased gem evaluations.

Appraising your items while you watch.

Examination and necessary tests are performed while you watch here in San Antonio. Your appraisal is a bound report and includes a full description, a digital image and a plot of all diamonds over half a carat. You will walk away with your jewelry and you will receive the bound report at the end of your appointment.

During this procedure, your fine jewelry will be examined thoroughly for condition, size, weight, shape, color and clarity characteristics with all details noted sufficiently to perform the appraisal. This involves plotting diagrams of diamonds and gemstones over .50pts and serial numbers with trademark or copyrights, hallmarks, etc., to show authenticity.

Our comprehensive reports include detailed descriptions, accurate evaluations and digital photographs.

All services are a confidential matter between appraiser and client.
