Jewellery Appraisals


Come into my Halifax, Nova Scotia, studio to see me about having your heirlooms appraised in a trusted environment.

What is a jewellery appraisal?

A jewellery appraisal is a written professional opinion of the authenticity, quality, design and approximate value of a piece of jewellery. It is used for retail replacement, probate or estate. Appraisals are independently and impartially prepared by a qualified appraiser. Theysett forth an opinion of defined value, as of a specific date, supported by the presentation and analysis of relevant market information. Since it is an “informed, professional opinion”, there can be variations between appraisals.

What is a Certified Appraisal Professional–CJA® (CAP)?

The appraiser requires a wide spectrum of knowledge, education, skills, tools and resources. The Canadian Jewellers Association (CJA) has established a set of requirements and a series of practical and theoretical examinations that test the appraising skills of jewellers and gemmologists. (Highlight the following:) My gemmologist and diamond buyer is a GIA Graduate Gemmologist and Fellow of the Canadian Gemmological Association. They hold the designation of Canadian Accredited Jewellery Appraiser with the Canadian Jewellers’ Association; one of only 35 appraisers in Canada with this recognition.

What to expect

The preparation of a professional appraisal is a thorough and lengthy task. You should expect up to two weeks for it to be completed.

With fluctuating gold prices, appraisals should be renewed every 3-5 years. Up-to-date, professional appraisals will help to avoid being under- or over insured in the event of a claim.

Appraisals are $89 plus tax.
