Appraisals & Estates
Appraisals & Estates
Certified jewelry appraisals are important to ensure proper valuing of your possessions. Graduate Gemologist and owner Jeff Velasco is a certified jewelry appraiser with the Gemological Institute of America. He can appraise all jewelry, gemstones, diamonds and precious metals for personal, estate or insurance purposes–this is especially important as precious metal pricing fluctuates. Most insurance companies recommend that these valuables be appraised at least every three years. However, we strongly recommend that you have your fine jewelry inspected in the store 2-3 times a year to ensure that clasps, prongs and other settings, etc. are in good condition to prevent unnecessary damage or loss due to wear and tear. In fact, we require that for all jewelry custom fabricated in our store.
We also provide appraisals for collectibles such as art, Native American antiquities, and clocks.
