About this Appraiser

Von Hasle Jewelry Advisers was founded in 2017 by Joel Hassler. Already an accomplished appraiser and having spent almost two decades in the retail jewelry industry, including owning his own store, he wanted to focus solely on the industry's appraisal and consulting side.

Von Hasle Jewelry Advisers is the only American Gem Society® Independent Certified Gemologist Appraiser firm in the state of Wisconsin and has an AGS Accredited Gem Laboratory on-site. In 2018, Joel was selected by the AGS as one of only two Certified Gemologist Appraiser-Instructors.

Appraisals are by appointment, and the inspection and grading of the items are done while you wait. Each piece takes approximately 30-minutes. On smaller assignments, you will leave with your items and a printed copy of your appraisal. Some larger projects may require the items to be left, take additional appointments to complete, or the valuation and report might be completed after the appointment. Digitally certified/encrypted PDFs can be emailed to you as well and at no additional cost. The appraisals contain photos from multiple angles of the piece to assist in replacement should you suffer a loss. Definitions of the terms used and multiple pages of educational information on the appraisal processes are also included.

Joel can assist clients with appraisals for insurance, estate tax, equitable distribution, resale, the dissolution of marriage, and others. Jewelry, watches, loose diamonds and gemstones from all periods are handled by this appraiser. The office is located in Main Place in Downtown Racine. Built in 1857 as the McClurg Building and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building has housed a variety of enterprises over the decades, that now includes Wisconsin's top jewelry appraiser and gemologist.
