Where to Get Certified Jewelry Appraisals in Orange County

Thursday, January 10th – 10am-1pm, we will have a GIA Graduate Gemologist from World Gemological Services in the store to appraise your jewelry.  We have worked with Whitney over the years and she comes with the all the state-of-the-art equipment and professional expertise necessary to appraise your jewelry accurately.  She will take digital pictures of each item along with carefully measuring and/or weighing stones and precious metals.  You will then receive–in the mail shortly thereafter–an appraisal typically beyond the requirements of your insurance company.

Not sure about your item’s being worth the expense of an appraisal?
Whitney will tell you up front whether or not it is, giving you the option BEFORE she begins the process.

Appointments: To protect your valuable time, please call 949.855.9778 in advance and make an appointment.  Feel free to wait and watch as the appraisal is done, or if it is more convenient, drop off your pieces before Whitney’s visit and pick them up thereafter.

Cost: $80 per item, 10% discount on 3 or more

Why Jewelry Appraisal is So Important:
Jewelry, gemstone and diamond appraisals are a very valuable form of protection.  A lot of people think a one-time appraisal is enough, but due to the ever changing price of diamonds, gemstones and precious metals such as gold, platinum and silver, your piece of jewelry may be worth far more today than you previously had it appraised at.  We recommend you have your jewelry appraised every three to five years for accurate value replacement.

Accurate Jewelry Appraisal is Vital for Various Situations:

  • Insurance coverage, due to damage or theft
  • Value Comparison
  • Marriage Dissolution
  • Estate Tax Evaluation
  • Liquidation
  • Collateral
