Paul Shikhvarger GG, the principal at Pacific Jewelry Appraisers & Brokers, offers a complete appraisal service for clients in the Los Angeles area at his office in Pacific Palisades or in your home or office.

Appraisals at Paul's office and gem lab are performed in your presence so you are not without your jewelry for any length of time. Typically, you will leave his office with your items and his completed assessment and valuation of your jewelry items. You should allow about an hour for a straight-forward 1 or 2 item appraisal. Obviously more complex or numerous items will take longer, so a drop-off and collect-later service may be more appropriate in these cases.

All appraisal reports conform to the standards laid down by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA), ensuring that you receive a service and report of the highest professional standard. Similarly, all gemstone and diamond grading is carried out with strict adherence to the standards of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the world's leading gem and diamond authority in this field.

If you prefer Paul to visit you in the comfort of your own home or office, or if the items need to be appraised in a bank vault or some other suitable secure location, a fully-equipped mobile gem lab option is available. Paul will examine your items on-site with his portable laboratory and your appraisal report will follow in a few days time.

This business has a totally transparent pricing structure. Fees are typically charged on a per-item basis on work performed at the business's office, so you know exactly what your final bill will be prior to the work starting. Assignments that involve larger quantities of items (for instance an Estate Appraisal) or jewelry, watches, pearls, gemstones and diamonds that are complex in nature or the evaluation is carried out on a home-visit basis, are usually charged on a time-based structure. Which ever option you select, a quote for the appraisal is given up-front.

Pacific Jewelry Appraisers & Brokers offer a speedy, professional yet friendly jewelry appraisal service on your most treasured of possessions, please contact Paul to discuss your requirements, by using the contact links at the top of this page.
