Jewelry Appraising reviews in Johnston
All items were sorted, evaluated, cleaned and priced. She even managed to get the sale on a week earlier than promised which when you consider the volume of items was amazing!
I didn't enter a cost of service because her fee is a percentage of the proceeds and that percentage changes with the total sales, going somewhat lower as thresholds are met. I will say that for the work she and her team provided I felt that the cost was extremely reasonable.
If you find yourself in need of someone to help you through a similar situation I can strongly recommend
He would not let me complete a sentence. He kept walking away from me, talking down to me, telling me to send the watch to the manufacture. This is all after they told me over the phone they could work on it.
I think the walking away and telling me the other watchsmith was stupid is what was bothering the most. Now if he would have opened the watch and looked at it ....or at the very least if he would have let me tell him what was wrong with the watch than; if he called the watchsmith stupid, I would not have minded as much. But he still does not even know what is wrong with the watch. The conversation went like this.
Me: Hi I had this watch looked at by...
Me: Ok,well, he showed me this broken
Me: I just stood there dumbfounded. I did not know what was happening.

I took a few pieces to him and he was about the rudest person I have experienced in my life. I showed him the pieces and he immediately stated that they were worthless and there was nothing I had brought in that he would be interested in. I told him I didnt even know if I would sell anything to him yet!When i iniitally called him he told me that he had been in the business for many years and that I could make an appointment to come in and he would be happy to educate me on the business. So I decided to go in, around 530pm. (They close at 6pm apparently) He seemed to be rushing me and just kept telling me that the things I had were worthless. I had other items, I didnt bring in that I wanted to show him. And he said if they looked like the items I had shown him, then to not bother.
Maybe he is only friendly to you if you bring in items that he is interested in.”
