What is Your Jewelry Worth?

The entire piece has to be considered. We will check the metal/s used, the stones, and in some cases, they piece’s designer is also considered.

After appraisal, compare the valuation with current trends so you can get a better idea of the price tag that can go with your earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and other types of jewelry.

Some online calculators are available. For online computing, prepare these details:

  • Kind of metal
  • Weight
  • Karat
  • Units – the number of stones/gems/metals used
  • Metal purity percentage


How is Jewelry Appraised?

Jewelry appraisal is a process conducted by a certified professional. An appraiser will examine your piece and state a dollar value for it. Both metals and gems are taken into consideration.

For customers with multiple items, we will analyze each piece individually and provide you with a cash offer for each piece and as a whole for all the pieces. We use equipment for appraisals such as a polariscope, refractometer, and UV light source.

Ask about the following:

  • The proper process that matches your appraisal purpose
  • The grading process and the measurements used
  • The statement of value with a seal
  • The statement of appraisal purpose written on a certificate
  • Open discussion where your questions will be entertained

  • Insurance
