A jewelry appraisal is a report, written by a qualified and experienced appraiser. At Mack & Sons Jewelers appraisals are prepared by G.I.A. Graduate Gemologists with over 60 years of retail and wholesale jewelry trade knowledge. We typically prepare appraisals for homeowner insurance policies, to assist in the sale of jewelry, to help families divide jewelry among future recipients, and for a variety of other business and legal purposes.
Turn around time is as expeditious as possible, generally two to three days. We ask that clients supply any previous documents or reports they may have that identify accurate weights of gemstones. Gemstones are not removed for evaluation. Each appraisal includes a color image of each article. Appraisal costs are dependent on the time involved and approximate estimate can generally be supplied during the initial consultation. There is no appointment necessary for a consultation.
