The process is quite simple. Everything is done right in front of you. When you enter our office, you will be greeted by our receptionist who can answer any basic questions you have prior to meeting your Gemologist. Once you meet the Gemologist, this is a great opportunity for you to ask them anything more in depth that you may be wondering about regarding your gemstone or jewelry item(s).
The assessment of your item(s) will begin by taking measurements and formulating the estimated weights of the gemstones/diamonds, followed by a complete assessment of the quality and craftsmanship. All of the information regarding the quality, detailed measurements, and authenticity will be observed and noted on the appraisal. A photo will also be taken, which will be included on the report.
The whole process is usually only 20-30 minutes per item. Your Gemologist will also explain any tips on care and maintenance and when you will need to have the appraisal updated.
