At Dunbar Jewelers your jewelry will be appraised by a Certified Gemologist Appraiser, of the American Gem Society. It is important when having an appraisal of your fine jewelry that it is performed by a Certified Gemologist Appraiser, not just a gemologist. By choosing an AGS-certified Appraiser, you can rest assured that you’re working with a professional who has been trained, certified, and know the requirements of state and federal laws.
A Certified Jewelry Appraiser can give you a fair and accurate appraisal for:
• Insurance to cover loss, damage or theft
• Estate tax evaluation
• Value comparison
• Dissolution of marriage (divorce)
We recommend getting your jewelry appraised every three to five years, either to update your insurance policy, or just to get a measurement on your investment.
All appraisals are done at our store location so your jewelry never leaves our premises. Due to the demand for our appraisal services; we schedule all of them in person at our location or by phone (509.457.5113). We typically are scheduling about one month out from the present time. All appraisals start at $125.00 per piece and can be more depending on the size of diamonds and gemstones. Once your appraisal is scheduled, we usually have your jewelry at our store for a week to be properly cleaned, checked for damage, and evaluated. We look forward to hearing from you.
