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. I have testified in court as an Expert Witness.
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.
