GIA Graduate Gemologist • Insurance Appraisals • Estate Appraisals • Insurance Documentation
Aires Jewelers is uniquely qualified to appraise your fine jewelry and gemstones. Our experienced staff has the background and gemological training to do a professional job of evaluating the current value of your precious keepsakes.
We have two on-site Gemological Institute of America (GIA) Graduate Gemologist always ready to evaluate your jewelry items. There is no need to leave any items with us... the evaluation of each piece can be done while you wait. We take our measurements, estimations and photographs, and then take a few days to research current market replacement values. The information is formalized on our letter head, includes a photograph of the appraised item, and the current replacement value. This appraisal is the document you can then take to your homeowners insurance or any other independent insurance company to obtain adequate coverage for your jewelry.
We also specialize in organizing and identifying items for estate purposes. We work closely with the family, attorneys and accountants involved to correctly identify, value and divide items if needed.
Many clients are looking to sell or liquidate new and old jewelry they no longer need. A formal appraisal is not needed to do this, but we can evaluate your items to determine the contents, market value, and if interested... make an offer to buy.
