Consultation & Education

We will advise our client who seeks to buy or sell jewelry, or other items, to assist them in making informed decisions.


We operate on a very competitive sliding scale system; therefore the more items there are to appraise, the more cost efficient the appraisal becomes. We DO NOT base our fees on the projected value of any appraised items. Large collections or projects are based on an initial free of charge estimate to assess the total amount of working hour needed to complete a project. Litigation fees are billed hourly.
