On-site jewelry appraisals are performed by GIA certified Graduate Gemologist Kenneth R. Insley. Mr. Insley is an independent appraiser with 35 years of experience. Clients receive two copies of the appraisal document which includes a photograph of the item, a detailed description, and the replacement value. We recommend that clients inquire with their insurance company for any other specific requirements they may have. The process takes about an hour, depending on the number of items being appraised. Clients are welcome to stay in the gallery and watch or drop their item off to us beforehand.
Appraisals are offered by appointment only. Please call to inquire about pricing and to schedule an appointment, (202)-393-GEMS (4367).
