I am an independent, full-time jewelry appraiser in Nashville. While you watch, I will prepare a professional and thorough appraisal document of your jewelry that will be accepted by your insurance company. Your portfolio includes a digital photograph of your jewelry and a detailed, gemologically-correct description that will leave no “wiggle-room” if the item ever needs to be replaced. In most cases, your appraisal documents are ready for you when you leave my office.
I appraise diamonds, colored gemstones, pearls, antique jewelry, as well as some watches. I do estate appraisals, perform gem identifications, fine jewelry and gem collection photography, confirmations of purchase, and can advise you on purchasing and selling jewelry.
Inherited collections of is it even real? jewels are quickly sorted and categorized: fine jewelry, costume jewelry, and so on.
I am a Graduate Gemologist (GIA) - Appraiser. I adhere to Gemological Institute of America grading standards. I am an American Society of Appraisers Candidate and am actively pursuing education through the ASA.
