About this Appraiser
Earth Pebbles, LLC. is an established jewelry appraisal practice serving the Raleigh and Wake Forest communities in North Carolina. Owned by Rebekah Anderson GG (GIA), this business provides same-day gemological and jewelry appraisal services from their office in the Cameron Village / Five Points area. All appraisal work is carried out in front of you, so your assets never leave your possession and you can engage with Rebekah while she works.
Rebekah has over 30 years experience in most areas of the jewelry trade, including design and artistry, appraising and retailing. She also had further experience with a diamond dealer and was responsible for the purchase, grading and sorting of polished diamonds. Prior to creating her business she was a Senior Instructor for the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the world's leading authority in gemology, gem standards, diamond grading and education. She then used this extensive knowledge and experience in addition to being a Certified Gemologist with the American Gem Society (1997-2002) to establish Earth Pebbles Gemology, where the focus is on appraising fine jewelry.
Having your precious items appraised is the best first step towards protecting them. To accurately determine the value of an item, all metals need to be identified and the quality of the gold and platinum assessed. Similarly, all gemstones and diamonds are identified and then graded for quality. It is important to use a suitably trained and qualified person to do this. Rebekah is a Graduate Gemologist from the GIA and has extensive experience in judging the factors that influence value.
Earth Pebbles create appraisals for all purposes on antique, period and modern jewelry and watches. The most frequently requested purpose is of course an appraisal for insurance replacement. This tells the insurance company exactly what the item is and what the sum assured should be set at. Other types include valuation for tax purposes, settling of an estate, liquidation etc. Irrespective of the purpose, all reports are compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and the guidlines of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers.
Sometimes a formal appraisal report is not required, particularly if there is no interested third-party involved. Maybe you just need a little advice on purchasing gems or jewelry, perhaps you wish to sell some of your diamonds, or maybe you need some guidance in a legal matter (Rebekah is an Expert Witness). Earth Pebbles has consulting services that are individually tailored to meet your requirements and would be delighted to set a consultation appointment for you with Rebekah.
