Your jewelry is valuable to you - you love it, treasure it. But along with the emotional value, it does have a monetary value as well. But you may have inherited jewelry or watches or received them as gifts, so you don't know exactly what their current value is. If you want to insure your jewelry and watches, you need to know what they're worth (and not just to you).
In an appraisal, a certified gemologist or appraisal expert will inspect your jewelry, diamonds and gemstones. Bring documentation such as sales slips, diamond or gemstone grading reports and warranties if you have them. The appraisal will take into account:
Current competitive retail prices
Brand names, serial numbers, model numbers (for watches), identifying manufacturer's marks on diamonds
The karatage for gold; the stamping of the percentage on platinum.
The metal of prongs and mountings
For diamonds and gemstones, the appraiser will evaluate the 4Cs (cut, color, clarity and carat weight)
At the end of the appraisal process, you will receive a detailed report and a statement of what your jewelry or watches are worth.

Watch Customization Options
Since watches were invented, watch owners have been seeking ways to personalize their watches. Of course, the same applies to owners of luxury watches. Watch customization is a common and highly desired extravagance. In fact, just about anything can be customized-from the dial and bezel to the bracelet and even the case, the options are limitless!
Dial customization generally indicates diamonds are added to each hour marker. The old "stick" markers are removed, holes are drilled, and diamonds are carefully inserted onto the dial. If desired, the color of the dial can also be altered at this time to make your watch even more unique. The addition of a diamond bezel is another popular customization option. A row of clear cut diamonds is delicately placed side by side and eventually circle the entire bezel. The original bezel remains intact and is removed while the newly made bezel is installed in its place. Diamonds can also be added directly to the watchcase. The process includes drilling small holes, filling them with gold, and attaching the diamonds. The holes are made on the surface and are not drilled through the watchcase.
Regardless of customization option, let's make it personal. Your watch deserves to be truly yours!
*Customization options vary upon style and make of the watch. Stop in to learn more, we are always happy to help uncover the possibilities!
