I have been appraising jewelry since 1997. My education and training has led me to the point where I currently hold the highest titles in appraising and gemology available from every organization to which I belong. Virtually all of my appraisals are completed on the same day, so if you want to watch while I appraise your jewelry you may. When you leave my office after your private, confidential appointment, you will leave with your appraisal in hand. The reports are complete in every way, and all diamonds over 1/2 carat are plotted, showing you your diamonds unique fingerprint. My gemological laboratory is certified by both the American Gem Society and the Accredited Gemologists Association. By attending at least 3 seminars a year, I ensure that my knowledge is up-to-date.
