ACCREDITED JEWELRY APPRAISERS, LLC Your Diamond Jewelry & Gem Appraiser Of Choice In The D.C. Metro Area!
Jewelry appraisals are done for a variety of reasons. By far the most common is for the purpose of insurance replacement, the key word being replacement.. Contrary to popular belief, no insurance company is just going to cut a check based solely on the appraised value of a lost, stolen, or damaged jewelry item. That is not the way a replacement policy works. In the event of a loss the policy holder is entitled to replacement (there’s that word again) with like, kind and quality, so in order to be compensated adequately the description given in the appraisal report is paramount! Of course, the value needs to be supported by the description as well and should reflect the current retail market. Too high and one is just overpaying on insurance premiums. Too low (also referred to upside down) and the money received based on the appraised value will not cover the cost of replacement.read more →

Jeff at Accredited Jewelry Appraisers is meticulous, professional, and fun to work with. I found him when I bought a diamond online that I intended to have set into a ring. I wanted to have the diamond evaluated before having it set, just to make sure I got what I paid for. Jeff explained all kinds of interesting things to me and let me look at my diamond under the scope. Then later when I'd had the ring set, Jeff was kind enough to apply the amount he had charged me for the evaluation of the loose diamond to the cost of the ring appraisal. His appraisals are very thorough. I highly recommend him!
Outstanding customer service, friendliness, and professionalism! I called Jeff because he is an independent appraiser who had a high feedback rating due to his trustworthiness, knowledge, credentials, and experience. He is quite simply one of the best in the appraisal field and a very nice man who takes the time to listen and provide honest feedback. He provided me with a comprehensive report as required by the insurance company to protect a very valuable jewelry piece. He also took the time to teach me what to look for and expect from the store when buying precious stones and jewelry as well as what the insurance company will require. It was a pleasure to speak with him and see the passion he has in his field of work and study. If you have any precious jewelry that you need appraised, Jeff has my highest recommendation!
I needed to get my sapphire engagement ring appraised, and Accredited Jewelry Appraisers, LLC had excellent reviews, so off I went. I had no idea what to expect while getting an appraisal, but Jeff went above and beyond a simple paper report. He walked me through the appraisal process, as well as the final report itself, answering any questions I had fully and thoroughly. He also knew a lot about colored gemstones, and he happily imparted his knowledge.
Throughout the process, Jeff was very personable, responsive, and through. He also alerted me to a hairline crack in the band which I wouldn’t have been aware of otherwise, and gave an excellent suggestion as to where to get it fixed quickly and correctly. I would definitely recommend his services for any appraisal needs.
