"After dropping my pendant necklace and breaking the gemstone into two pieces, was able to custom design two very beautiful pieces, a pendant" necklace and a ring. works with each person and peace to design specifically for each individual. I love her work. You won't find anything else like a piece of jewelry .

"Initially we had an issue due to Angies List itsself-my acceptance of a time was not relayed to her. I will always contact the vendor in the future (Angie is not" perfect either!). The lady was very apologetic and sweet. We set a new date and she was on time. She had to take a hammer to my items (gold fillings from teeth and crowns) to extract the metal. My husband is a dentist and had collected this over decades. All work was done in my home and she wrote me a check right there.

Jewelry Appraising reviews in Philadelphia

They give honest prices, not trying to steal anything, and excellent to buy from! They're honest, reputable, and broad knowledge of all periods. I've used other providers and nobody even comes close to them. The best antique dealers in the whole city and the best for widows trying to get rid of their estate or people trying to buy or modify ...More their collection. If you want to buy go to them, they are so knowledgeable. I will not go anywhere else. If you are in a crisis, they will calmly work with you.

The appraiser arrived a few minutes early and was very friendly and professional. She spent approximately 2 hours making sure that everything was assessed accurately and then provided a more than fair offer for some of the collection which I gladly accepted. I would highly recommend their service!

They only response by form email to my three email queries as to why they have not performed the valuations. When I called their NY number the voice message box was full so unable to leave message or talk with anyone. I requested a full refund through PayPal but have not heard a response. I believe this is a potential Scam, or they are really too overwhelmed ...More to do the business they promise on their website.
I would not recommend them for art, jewelry, or any other appraisals.

I consigned the coin collection to . They provided the date and time the would be auctioned, the commission fee structure (very fair in my opinion) and an invitation to attend the auction. I was able to track the sale on their website and was extremely pleased with the auction results. Everything sold ...More at or above the appraised estimate. Highly recommend this company.

I recently had to travel to Arizona to dispose of my parents’ estate. They had quite a bit of jewelry and when I asked my lawyer for the name of a reliable appraiser, he recommended .
My time in was limited, but was very accommodating and understood the need for a ...More timely appraisal. He came to their apartment and looked at their antique jewelry, European jewelry, and what I thought was costume jewelry. (Surprisingly, some of what seemed to me to be pretty worthless turned out to be 18k gold!)
He took the time to explain what pieces were damaged and whether some costly repairs would actually be worthwhile. He was extremely knowledgeable and very professional throughout the entire process, and I am so glad he was recommended.
Overall, it was a very interesting learning experience for me, and once I knew what I was working with, the resulting dispositions went very smoothly.

Mr. was a pleasure to work with. I called on a Friday and was able to schedule an appointment for Saturday afternoon. He was very thorough in his appraisal and explained the process very clearly. He is very friendly and knows the gem industry very well. He recommended an insurance company with a local agent. I highly recommend ...More Mr. and I will return to him for future needs.

I was looking for a service that was unbiased and had no interest in making an offer to purchase my jewelry to assure that the appraisal was accurate. The service that was exactly what I was looking for, professional, thorough, and gave detailed characteristics of my piece to support the resulting value estimate. I was very pleased ...More with final report.
