"They don't give receipts or written warranties. So when an item is not repaired properly (ie: diamonds falling out of the setting) they blame the customer." The worst situation was that I paid them over $2600 total to refurbish and waterproof a solid gold vintage
watch with real movement. I wore it in the water one time and the watch was immediately damaged due to water infiltration. This occurred within six months of the original refurbishment / work. I took the watch to them to repair it, they said they would fix it under the warranty. When I went to get the watch they presented me with a bill for $550. They did not stand by their workmanship, blamed me, and I was forced to pay an additional $550 to get my watch back. I will now take the watch to a reputable watch repair shop on Wabash that specializes in
watches to make sure the watch was properly repaired and water proofed. Do not use them! They are totally dishonest and do not stand by their workmanship!!! What is shocking is that I gave them over $5,000 of business in the past year and a half, I was one of their best customers. If they will do this to me, they will do this to anyone!

gave a helpful, honest appraisal, and thoroughly explained the condition and
value of the piano. He was willing to" answer questions on the phone, and to talk to prospective buyers. However, the written appraisal provided only a price, and no details on the piano itself.

did a thorough job evaluating my ring for a reasonable price. He came in early to accommodate my schedule. He realized I was on a tight time frame to get in and out, and he took care of me quickly, while answering all of my questions. For the price, you get a good, basic evaluation of the ring.
