Jessop's San Diego Jewelry Store Staff Photo

Jessop's is an American Gem Society-accredited gem lab. We are proud to offer the highest level of qualifications for San Diego jewelry appraisals. Here, using binocular microscopes and special gemological equipment, our American Gem Society-certified gemologists and diamond appraisers expertly identify and grade gemstones and assess the worth and value of fine jewelry to prepare appraisals in our San Diego jewelry store.

We provide an original appraisal and a copy for your records. Our appraisal documentation includes an identification of the metal content, as well as a description of the quality and color of the gemstones.

Our certified, staff jewelry appraisers prepare appraisals for two primary reasons. The first is an insurance appraisal designed to reflect the current replacement value you may need for adequate insurance coverage. The second is an estate appraisal indicating, in most cases, the fair market value for disposal in the marketplace or for estate tax purposes. You can be sure you are getting the most accurate jewelry appraisal in San Diego.

While we prepare appraisals, we clean and inspect the jewelry carefully. We check prongs to be sure they are tight, inspect gemstones for damage from wear, and make certain pearls are safely strung. If a piece is not in sound condition, our in-house, San Diego jewelry appraisal experts will suggest any repairs that are necessary. After you have authorized our work, our jeweler will skillfully execute the repairs.

Keeping your jewelry in top condition is an important part of preserving it's value - now and in the future. An accurate jewelry appraisal assures you know the contents of your belongings. Call Jessop's, (619) 234-4137, for appraisal details.
