We get many calls from people who inquire about our services. After we explain everything, they will say something like "well I am calling around doing my research." My next question is "what exactly are you looking for in an appraiser as part of your research?" If anyone reading this is "doing their research", I can help. Here are the questions you should be asking, besides "price". How long have you been in the jewelry business? Are you a graduate gemologist. Do you belong to any appraisal organizations? Do you offer free updates? Do I have to leave my jewelry? Do you do home visits? What price guides do you use? Are your appraisals accepted by ALL insurance agencies?Are you insured? Are you licensed? What is your turn around time? Are you BBB accredited with an A+ rating? Do jewelers use your services? Have you worked with attorneys and estate planners? Many of these answers are on my website or profile, but I do not mind answering them when you call. I hope this is part of your research, and you are not just calling for prices only. In the long run, it may not be a wise decision. Inexperienced "appraisers" can over or under value your jewelry causing higher premiums or problems in the event of a loss. Incorrect identifications or incorrect diamond grading can be another major problem. So please, ask more than the price ... and do your research wisely!
