Our appraisals are accepted by all major insurance companies. Most insurers ask that appraisals are updated every three years. We strongly suggest that you check with your insurance company to be sure you are adequately covered. Jason H. Miller is a GIA Graduate Gemologist with thirty years experience as a jewelry appraiser.
In dealing with an estate, appraisal services may be needed for fair distribution of items or for tax purposes. Our estate jewelry liquidation appraisal can be used for these purposes.
While retail replacement appraisals compensate for the standard markup of the retailer, wholesale liquidation appraisals give a closer figure to what a jewelry buyer or jewelry wholesaler may pay. This can be helpful when jewelry is being used in lieu of cash in a transaction.
Our Gemological Laboratory is equipped the the following equipment:
Two binocular microscopes with up to 60x power.
Short wave and long wave fluorescence detection.
GIA certified master color diamonds for grading.
Duplex 2 Refractometer.
Gram scale accurate to 0.01 gram.
Carat scale accurate to 0.001 carat.
