About

Established in 1994, Jewelry Appraisal Services provides a speedy appraisal, gemological and other jewelry-related services to private individuals from their office and gemological laboratory in Houston TX.

Gemologist and Jewelry Appraiser Steven Silver and Graduate Gemologist Stewart North consistently provide unbiased value opinions on modern, antique and period gem-set and diamond jewelry and watches. This business does not buy or sell any of these items, so their conclusions are independent and fair as they have no vested interested in the outcome of their examination and research.

This business has a totally transparent pricing structure for their appraisal fees as it is a flat fee based on the number of items. This allows Steven to give an exact quote for his work prior to starting the appraisal. The only exception to this rule is when the item is very complex or requires research that will extend beyond the norm, for instance when provenance needs to be investigated, but even under these conditions, a firm quote is given for your consideration before work commences.

The appraisal of your jewelry, gems and diamonds is normally carried out at this business's office while you are present. The items will never leave your sight and it is hoped that you will find the experience interesting, informative and will in some way add to your understanding and enjoyment of your jewelry collection. Steve or Stewart can also bring an extensive gemological mobile laboratory to your home of office to perform the appraisal if you would prefer that the work was carried out in surroundings that are familiar to you. Additionally, this business also offers a "main-in" service to those clients who are too far away to visit.They will perform the same insured and professional appraisal service as if you were in the office with them and your items will usually be shipped back to you within 48 hours of them receiving them.

A variety of appraisal reports are offered for all purposes, all are written in a detailed narrative style and include photographs. Plot diagrams are also included where appropriate. In addition to insurance appraisals, they also offer estate appraisals for inheritance purposes, donation appraisals, pre-purchase evaluations, and evaluations to assist you in selling your gems. Diamond reports, damage analysis, loss-of-value reports are also provided on request.

Steven and Stewart have a combined experience of over 60 years. This knowledge is not only employed to offer you a trustworthy appraisal and valuation service but they also conduct Diamond Education Seminars and variety of other jewelry-related courses to help members of the public make better informed jewelry buying decisions.
