About this Appraiser

For jewelry appraisal in Albuquerque and Santa Fe NM, there is one accredited appraiser who stands out as a clear leader in the jewelry appraisal profession, Mary Reich of Gemologically Speaking, LLC. This Master Gemologist Appraiser® is one of the most highly respected jewelry experts in the US and is heavily involved in gem appraisal education and codes of practice that other appraisers are required to follow. Jewelry appraisals, diamond grading, gemological services and jewelry-related consultations are available from this business's comfortable office, which is 10 minutes from Downtown Albuquerque.

Jewelry & Diamond Appraisal Services

The assessments of your jewelry, diamonds, watches, and gemstones are performed on a by appointment basis only. Typically if you have only a few pieces for Mary to appraise, your precious items will be ready to collect later the same day, obviously larger collections take a little longer. Since each item is thoroughly researched, your appraisal report will follow shortly after your appointment. Gemologically Speaking’s appraisals are highly respected for their accuracy and fine detail, you will receive an extremely detailed analysis of your possessions. If you require an appraisal for insurance coverage, this last point is very important, as the description of your items usually forms the basis of any settlement of an insurance claim, not the ascribed value. Descriptions include accurate measurements of all diamonds and gemstones, along with calculated weights. Judgments are made regarding color and clarity in the universally adopted nomenclature from the Gemological Institute of America and additional details that form a value element are recorded.

Mobile gem lab - This business also offers a mobile appraisal service for clients in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas, as Mary also has a fully portable laboratory. The examination of your jewelry can be carried out in your office, home or some other secure location. Which ever service you select, you will receive the same professional service and expertly produced appraisal documentation.
