We are proud to offer on-site jewelry appraisals completed by one of our two GIA Gemologists. With the use of the most precise gemological equipment, we will evaluate your piece of jewelry and give you an accurate appraisal value. We can do three different types of appraisals: insurance, estate and current market stress liquidation.
Most jewelry appraisals are done for insurance purposes and should be added to yours home owners or renters insurance policies as a “rider” to assure that if your jewelry is lost, stolen, or damaged, you will be properly compensated. Our Gemologists will provide you with the most up to date value of your jewelry, which should be updated every 3-5 years.
All of our appraisals are done in house and require approximately 2-5 days for proper cleaning , inspection and grading. Larger appraisals will take more time. We know how valuable and precious your jewelry is to you and assure that we will use the utmost care with your pieces. Our family has been in the jewelry business over 65 years, our reputation means everything and we will stand behind our work.
Our appraisals include color and clarity of stones where applicable, dimensions, size and weight.Mountings will be measured, identified, described and photographedand the values will be assessed.
Pricing for appraisals are $125.00 for the first item, each additional item will be $75.00 for items that are not purchased from our store. As always appraisals for jewelry purchased from Leightons Fine Diamonds is free for our customers.
If your jewelry contains diamonds or colored stones that are graded by a gemological laboratory, please bring the certification paper work with you when leaving items for appraisal. Our gemologists will verify the stone matches the certification and attach copies to your appraisal.
