Diamond Appraisals


Professional Diamond Appraisals

Our accredited Gemologists can appraise many types of jewelry, but they have significant expertise and specialize in diamond appraisals. A diamond appraisal certifies the genuineness of a diamond, as well as its identifying characteristics or “5 Cs” including carat weight, cutting style, color, clarity, and certification. Certification includes any documentation provided when the stone was purchased. If the diamond or diamonds are set in a ring, bracelet, earring, necklace, or watch the appraisal will present the total weight, purity, and styling of the piece.

Onsite Diamond Examination

Our independent jewelry appraisal professionals perform an onsite examination. The accredited Gemologist will visit your residence, office, or safe deposit box location with mobile gemological equipment. There is no need to travel with and leave your jewelry out of your sight. Schedule a jewelry appraisal in the privacy and security of your chosen location today.

Diamond Valuation Report

Within a matter of days of the onsite examination you will receive an independent, USPAP compliant, certified appraisal report. Our diamond appraisal reports meet the highest industry standard as required by Insurers, Government Agencies, and the Courts. The reports are used for Scheduling Insurance, Estate Settlement, Equitable Distribution, Marital Dissolution, Charitable Donation, and Buy/Sell decisions.

We identify and certify the value of diamonds of all shape, size, color and weight. The jewelry appraisal report will describe the diamond jewelry item in detail, present images, and certified value. Our Gemologists serve as Expert Witnesses in defense of their certified, independent reports.


We have a fiduciary responsibility to our appraisal clients. Therefore, every client and all information and reports connected to the client is strictly confidential. We securely maintain the required digital work file for every assignment in multiple locations as required by USPAP standards. This allows access for litigation purposes and efficient insurance value updates. Our appraisers are insured with General Liability and Errors and Emissions coverage.
