How often should I have my jewelry appraisals updated?

You should have your jewelry appraisal updated every three years, however, an annual update may be in your best interest. Prices of diamonds, precious metals, and colored gemstones often change from year-to-year and may fluctuate up or down depending on market conditions. It is important to be sure that you are protected in the unfortunate event of a loss. Appraisal updates are critical for keeping your jewelry appropriately covered.

Estate Jewelry Acquisitions or
Division of Property

Whether you are an individual, executor, personal representative or an attorney we welcome you! Sorting jewelry can be a daunting task. We do it every day! Downsizing, death, or simply deciding what to do with gem and jewelry prized possessions is our speciality.

Perhaps you need to determine the value for the division of property? Or maybe you just need to sell the items and split the proceeds for the heirs? Whatever your needs, we are here to help.

We purchase estate jewelry, silver and gold coins, watches and related items from many sources. We will determine the best avenue for disposing of one's personal collection. We have the connections to find the right market to receive the most money for high end, significant, and recognized brand name items, too.
