Jarvis Gems and Jewelry Appraisals is a full-service appraisal practice established in 2004 and serves clients from the Dallas and Fort Worth areas and the surrounding cities. Specializing in jewelry appraisal, litigation support and jewelry purchase / sales advice for the discerning jewelry owner, this company prides itself on its transparent approach to dealing with clients and it's fair pricing policy.

The two principal Appraiser Gemologists, Steven W. Jarvis, G.G. and Joyann Cooke, G.G., are both Graduate Gemologists from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and jointly have over 50 years jewelry trade experience. Mr Jarvis is also a Senior Member of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA).

From their North Dallas office and laboratory, a while-you-watch appraisal service is carried out. The company's President, Steven Jarvis has specifically built their systems and procedures to involve you in the appraisal process. He is of the opinion that your time at their offices should be an "experience" and a very pleasant one at that. Work starts at the very beginning of your appointment and you are free to ask questions as your Appraiser works on your items. All microscope work is fed through to a monitor so you not only see how your Appraiser is handling and working on your diamonds and gemstones, you will be seeing what your Appraiser is seeing and this will give you an added insight into your precious items.

You should allow approximately 30 minutes per item plus any consultation time, after which you will typically leave the office with your jewelry and your printed documentation. If you would prefer, you are able to make arrangements to leave your jewelry and return after the appraisal has been completed at a predetermined time.

For your convenience, most services can also be conducted in your home, office or in a bank vault, as well as at their Dallas office. To take advantage of this company's portable laboratory, it is recommended that you have several items for examination to be cost effective.

Jewelry Appraisal Services Jarvis Gems and Jewelry Appraisals specializes in jewelry appraisals for purposes such as insurance scheduling, estate distribution, charitable donations, casualty loss and divorce settlement.

Litigation Support Services Appraisals, Hypothetical Appraisals, Expert Testimony and Attorney / Client Legal Consultation are just some of the support service offered. Every appraisal report issued is admissible in Court and conforms to the standards set forth by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

Purchase/Sale Related Services Whether you are seeking to have the quality and purchase price of your jewelry and diamond items verified, or you just need some guidance and assistance in purchasing or liquidating some jewelry, gemstones, diamonds or watches, Steven and Joyann will be delighted to be of service to you.

Excellent Service

My husband and I recently made an appointment with Steven Jarvis to have several pieces of estate jewelry appraised. We could not have been more satisfied. Steven Jarvis answered all questions, explained how he arrived at a value and pointed out several pieces that were not worth appraising when he could have taken advantage of our lack of knowledge. We were impressed with his integrity and knowledge and would highly recommend Steven Jarvis should you need an item appraised for retail value or insurance value.

Expertise / Items Examined: A number of pieces of jewelry from an estate and several coins.

Estate Jewelry Appraisal

I would highly recommend Steve Jarvis for any estate jewelry valuations that you may need. After our mother's passing, we had a number of pieces of jewelry that needed appraising for their fair market value to determine the value of her overall estate. Steve delivered this service quickly, professionally and, most of all, with compassion.

Expertise / Items Examined: More than 30 items of jewelry.
