Appraisals and Evaluations

We love doing Appraisals! This is one of our favorite parts of the jewelry business. Learn more about the different types of appraisals that we offer.


Standard Jewelry Appraisals:

Jewelry is weighed, measured, photographed and inspected by a Certified Appraiser. When the appraisal is complete, you will be presented with a certificate including this information about your jewelry, as well as the current market value of your jewelry. Printed and Emailed copies will be sent to you for your records.

Please book an appointment to ensure same-day appraisals. 


Jewelry Appraisal Pricing:

$180 for each item

For 4 or more items, a bulk rate may apply


Jewelry Re-Appraisals

Sometimes jewelry that has been recently appraised requires a 're-appraisal'. An example of this is when an item was appraised only 2 years ago, but the owner has moved to a new city or state. Insurance companies often require a new appraisal with the current address. Another example is to re-appraise a piece of jewelry that you inherited recently and has a current appraisal from your relative.  We can update the appraisal with your name and address.

We are happy to schedule an appointment for re-appraisals. Original & current appraisal must accompany the piece of jewelry. 

$75 per Re-appraisal item.


Jewelry Evaluations (list form)

For larger amounts of jewelry (10+ pieces) a Jewelry Evaluation or Inventory List may be a better option. Please contact us to discuss the process and pricing for this.

$180 per hour


Hmm, what is this?

For those times when you have a 'shoe-box' of jewelry and don't know what's in it, or you inherit a large amount of jewelry from a favorite relative.  We can help you to determine which of those items are real or costume and what is the approximate value. Take the stress off of yourself and have a professional do the work!

$180 per hour $90/30 minutes  (most 'shoe boxes' take about 1 hour, however large collections might take more time.  We can help you estimate the time and cost in advance.)

Please email [email protected] or call us at 650.209.0081 to get an accurate estimate for your Appraisal or Evaluation project.
