Helpfull Tips: A. Preparing For Your Appraisal Appointment: 1. Cleaning Your Jewelry: Try to have your jewelry cleaned best possibal before your appointment to save time. A thorough cleaning can be done in our office more quickly if your jewelry is reasonably clean to start out with. A mixture of a mild household liquid soap detergent and water scrubing with a soft bristle toothbrush works best. 2. Grading Certificates: Please remember to bring your GIA, AGSL, or EGL Certificates for comparison. Although we do our own Independent Appraisal, Unlike a loose stone grading, most likely we will be appraising your jewelry mounted and may need a depth measurement or diameter or actual weight to complete our appraisal.
