Our expert appraisers can determine the value of your jewelry pieces and provide the documentation required for insurance.
The appraisal documents that we provide are typed and include photographs of each appraised piece of jewelry. We also include an extra copy of the document for your insurance agent. Many insurance companies require a Gemologist to sign the appraisal to be bound.
Mimi Brummitt is a Graduate Gemologist with the GIA and a Certified Gemologist with the AGS. She has been appraising jewelry for over 30 years.
