Jewelry Appraisal

A jewelry appraisal can be done on most any item of jewelry, whether it be platinum or gold. When you use Collins Jewelers it is often possible to receive an update, which is usually less costly than a new appraisal.  
A lab certificate or grading report (ex. Gemological Institute of America) describes an unmounted gemstone.Reports differ for diamonds and colored gems, but documentation includes specifics about carat weight and dimensions, color and clarity grades, and items relating to the gemstone’s cut and shape. 
Think of a certificate as kind of a road-map of the gemstone–it will not change unless the gem undergoes alterations or an error was made during evaluation. Appraisals are opinion-based backed by training, equipment, and experience.  Our appraisals do NOT represent an offer to purchase or replace your jewelry.
