Diamond and Colored Gemstone Grading
Market Value Estimations
Consultation Quality Assessments
Appraisal fees are based on the complexity of the item(s) and the research and analysis necessary to determine an estimate of value and produce a comprehensive appraisal report.
Simple items, such as plain wedding bands and gold chains, require less time to appraise, while more complicated items require more time, such as antique or period pieces or items with many diamonds. The appraisal is priced accordingly.
Estimates for appraisal fees are provided by phone and are based on the client’s description of the item. Appraisal fees rarely exceed the original estimate and sometimes are less. Any adjustments to the estimate are made and agreed to once the jewelry is examined at the onset of the appointment.
All appraisal reports are prepared in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), authorized by Congress as the source of appraisal standards and appraiser qualifications.
Consultations are available for other services such as verbal valuations, gemstone and metal identification, market value estimations, and quality assessments. Fees are based on an hourly rate with a 1/2 hour minimum.
