We offer all of the following appraisal and assessment services described below. Please call us for process details.
The purpose of an insurance appraisal is to put a realistic dollar value and accurate description on an item of jewelry. This way one can get insurance coverage against loss or theft.
These are used for settling the distribution of an inheritance, and also to help limit exposure to inheritance taxes.
MARITAL ESTATE APPRAISAL
In the event of an unrealistic valuation claim, an objective assessment can help to minimize disputes involving divorce settlements.
Before a buyer commits to a purchase that they are uncertain is priced fairly, we can be consulted as to that item’s true market value.
Handling an estate? Bring in your inherited items for an assessment. We'll happily sort through jewelry, coins and more to assess which items are real, worth keeping, selling, or donating.

Do you desire to have an active part in creating an engagement ring or piece of jewelry that you can truly call “your own”? In our store’s Design Studio we can offer you almost infinite possibilities.
A design can be created and examined from any angle on our large-screen wall monitor. Our computer can even show you what it will look like completely finished and on your hand!
After a design is approved, we next cast it in gold or platinum. We then set the stones to finish your one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art!
In re-creating antique or vintage pieces, we step away from the design computer and employ Old World jewelry making methods. We hand-cut waxes, lost-wax cast, and hand-engrave. As a result, our re-creations are almost indistinguishable from real vintage jewelry.
OUR LOOK BOOK
While we showcase many of our designs on this webpage, we have a portfolio “Look Book” of many of our other creations. Please feel free to ask to see it when you visit us, or view our online design gallery for a sampling.
For those looking to sell, we offer top dollar in a pressure-free and respectful environment.
