At Diamond Design, we’re pleased to provide a full suite of in-house, professional appraisal services. Up to date appraisals of your jewellery are critical to maintaining adequate insurance protection, especially with the fluctuating dollar and price of gold. You may also want to determine the value or authenticity of your jewellery for estate and tax purposes.

What’s Involved

First, we clean, inspect and photograph your piece. Our gemmologist, Julie Deriaz FGA, P.Geo, B.Sc(Hons), will then test, grade, identify, value and appraise your jewellery. A written report will be generated within two weeks, and will be available in print or digitally.
