About this Appraiser

Jewelry appraisal and gemological services are offered by the New England Gem Lab from their comfortable and secure offices in Old Saybrook and West Hartford CT. The NEGL enjoys you being present during the appraisal process (although this is not obligatory) as this makes for a interesting experience for all concerned and enables you to ask the Appraiser questions that will give you a better understanding and appreciation of your jewelry, colored gems and diamonds. You will leave the lab with your items and your appraisal report will either be given to you then or it will follow in a few days if additional research is required.

Service is also available in the comfort and security of your own home or office. NEGL have a portable laboratory that enables the Appraiser to come to you. Your circumstances might make it more appropriate for the Gemologist to examine your items in a third-party location, e.g. a bank vault or Laywers office, if this is your desire, NEGL will happily oblige. They specialize in insurance replacement appraisals and those for estate settlement, purchase verification and also offer a brokerage service for your liquidation needs.

This business is headed by Cynthia Konney GG, a highly experienced Jewelry Appraiser and Gemologist who has spent a lifetime in the jewelry trade and is a:
