Written Appraisal

Regular price $ 165.00

Written insurance appraisals provide peace of mind for our clients in knowing they will be properly compensated in the unfortunate event of loss or theft of their valuables.

We can assess a variety of items including new purchases or inherited family heirlooms and provide you with a comprehensive appraisal documentation which includes the following:

  • Detailed description of each appraised item, such as size or length
  • Precious metal content determination
  • Condition of item
  • Melee size and weight if applicable as well as color, cut, and clarity grade
  • Each document also includes a digital photograph
  • Appraised value will be determined at a conservative retail replacement value
  • A basic cleaning is also performed before each inspection.
  • Gemstones, diamonds are also tested for natural or lab origins
  • Appraisals can sometimes be done while you wait and may take up to 45 minutes to evaluate. It takes 3-5 days to produce official documentation thereafter in both a soft/hard-copy format and starts at $165+

The Making of Your Masterpiece - Abridged Version

Open tab

Make your jewelry as unique as your love story. We create precision art using the latest in Computer Aided Design and 3D printing.

Custom designs by The Classic Gem are made using the highest standards in the industry. Each diamond is hand selected and calibrated to within 0.1mm, and matched for color, clarity and table size. The results are always stunning and more importantly made with solid craftsmanship.

We make our jewelry to your exact dimensions.  Mass produced pieces are often resized to fit the finger and retrofitted to house the gemstone(s). These modifications weaken the structural integrity, creating gaps and an unfinished look. Our unique process starts with curating the best stones, and then designing around the stone to fit your unique specifications. We also account for ideal tensile strengths for durability and design best practices and aesthetics.
