Professional, Knowledgeable, Efficient
Deborah came highly recommended by a respected, 65-year established Jewelry store in Alexandria. She is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and professional. I brought her 13 items, some of which were designer brands purchased in Tiffany and Bergdorf-Goodman decades ago; and others in Italy and Hong Kong.
In each case she was able to research the item for a insurance replacement value. In addition to being familiar with U.S. products, she was able to pin point the exact company and city origins of an 18k gold brooch purchased in Italy.
She provided a bound, detailed summary with scope of work, processes, conditions, individual item descriptions and assessment with photo, and stamped signature.
Expertise / Items Examined: These 13 items were primarily 18 K gold: Tiffany bracelet; earrings; cufflinks; Ebel and Concord watches; Marco Bicego bracelet with pearl and diamond; 3 Angela Cummings brooches; 18K gold charms with stones; 18K gold pin; 14 K gold brooch, Pearls.
