About this Diamond Appraiser

This company provides an independent jewelry appraisal service to the Palm Beach County area, including Clewiston, Wellington, Lake Worth and Palm Beach Gardens from their office in West Palm Beach FL.

Diamond Appraisal by Stoddard was established 1972 and is headed by Graduate Gemologist Charles "Chuck" Stoddard, GG, CIA. Chuck has extensive experience in all areas of the jewelry trade having initially trained as a goldsmith, manufacturing handmade jewelry for discerning clients before obtaining a Graduate Gemologist degree (GG) with the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). This blend of a practical understanding of jewelry fabrication and gemological knowledge and expertise makes for an extremely effective appraiser.

All appraisal work is carried out at Chuck's very secure office on a one-to-one consultation basis. You will deal directly with Chuck while the appraisal process is carried out, this allows you to ask questions about your jewelry, diamonds and gems as Chuck enjoys giving you additional information that may not be required in your report.

This jewelry appraisal practice specializes in the valuation of colored gemstones and their color assessment. Given the location of this business, Chuck has extensive experience in the appraisal of Diamond International’s Crown of Light diamonds, which are very often bought on cruise ships and in the Caribbean. All appraisal reports, including those for diamonds and diamond set jewelry, are USPAP complaint and include photographs of your items. Chuck fully researches all items but his time-based fees are charged only for the period spent with him at the office, any additional research time is absorbed by the business.

Diamond Appraisal by Stoddard does not buy or sell jewelry so you can be assured of a totally unbiased appraisal of your jewelry items. In addition to Chuck's gemological and appraisal credentials, he is also a JIBNA Certified Insurance Appraiser.

Custom Tanzanite Ring

I purchased a loose Tanzanite stone in Kenya many years ago. I had the stone set in a custom 14K gold ring for my daughter. Chuck Stoddard appraised the ring for me and gave me a very detailed report and valuation. I provided a copy of the report to my insurance company for coverage and the insurance company rep was also very impressed with Chuck’s work product.
