On-Site Jewellery Appraisals
Our clients put their valuables in our hands and their trust in our expertise…
And we are careful with both.
What We Offer
While-You Wait Appraisal Service
Appointments are booked on weekdays. If you like, you may also drop your items off for a later pickup. All appraisal work is done on-site by a GIA Graduate Gemologist.
Education, integrity, and decades of expertise stand behind our appraisal service.
David Conger has been appraising jewellery for over 38 years in Ottawa, including his work as an independent appraiser for 30 fine jewellery stores in the area. He is a Graduate of the Resident Program in Gemology at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Santa Monica, California. The jewellery trade recognizes him as a respected gemologist & jewellery appraiser.
For all-risk jewellery insurance coverage, we recommend a professional jewellery appraisal by our experienced GIA Graduate Gemologist.
The evaluation is a report which details the components of your jewellery and concludes with a Retail Replacement Value. It includes a photograph of the item and the expert credentials of the appraiser.
Estate / Probate
For Estate and Probate purposes, jewellery should be evaluated for its Fair Market Value.
A qualified jewellery appraiser will research the marketplace and create a report that will stand up in a court of law if challenged.
Jewellery evaluations are often needed for divorce settlements in order to divide property up equitably.
Fair Market Value is determined in these instances.
