Appraisals – We have the most knowledgeable and experienced appraisers you can find anywhere. We can appraise all kinds of jewelry, diamonds, gemstones, sterling flatware, watches, and much more. If you haven’t had your jewelry appraised in the past 5 years, we recommend you have it documented in detail today. Most appraisals are done for the purpose of obtaining insurance coverage in the case of loss, damage or theft. However, our appraisals can be used for many different situations such as; estate tax evaluation, value comparison, casualty loss, dissolution of marriage (divorce), collateral and barter purposes.
Jewelry Insurance – Jewelers Mutual Insurance is the only insurance company that specializes in protecting jewelers and the personal jewelry of the United States. Founded in 1913, Jewelers Mutual licensed in all 50 states, insures personal jewelry of more than 100,000 people. As a professional jeweler, we are committed to providing a full range of services – from helping you make the right selection to backing up your purchase if there is a problem. With that in mind, we would like to tell you about a service called Personal Jewelry Insurance from Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, the nation’s jewelry insurance specialists. Fine jewelry is beautifully crafted to last for generations, but accidents do happen. Loss or damage to these items can be emotionally and financially devastating. Your Personal Jewelry insurance policy will repair or replace your insured jewelry if lost, stolen or damaged. It even covers “mysterious disappearance.” What’s more, if you have a covered loss, Jewelers Mutual will ask that you return us to have your jewelry repaired or replaced instead of mailing it off to someone you don’t know. Furthermore, jewelry losses you experience with Jewelers Mutual will not affect your existing homeowners policy. Jewelry losses you turn in on your homeowners policy will count towards your continued eligibility and may even impact your homeowners premium. For more information, stop by our store and pick up a brochure on the program, call Jewelers Mutual direct at 1-888-884-2424 or visit them at Jewelers Mutual Insurance. We would also be happy to provide the insurance appraisals needed to insure your jewelry.

Angular Spectrum Evaluation Tool –
We have the new American Gem Society Lab Desktop ASET Machine. In 2005 the AGS introduced a tool known as the Angular Spectrum Evaluation Tool or ASET. The ASET shows light return with great detail, as light is color-coded 3 ways. This is very important because the quality of light that comes from around and above is not identical. The ASET detects light leakage and identifies where light is actually being returned by a diamond using reflector type technology.
Engraving – Let our engravers add that personal touch. We can engrave in script or block, monograms, poems, even family crests. If you’d like your wedding rings personalized we can engrave on the inside or out. Both machine and hand engraving are available.

Laser Inscribing – We can inscribe a name or other identification mark on any diamond, and most gemstones – even pearls! The laser inscription is only visible under magnification but is a great way to identify your own gemstones.
All of the traditional jewelry metals can be laser-welded! All base metals, Karat gold, Sterling Silver, Titanium, Palladium, and Platinum! Interestingly enough, Platinum that has historically been one of the most difficult metals to work with and repair, is one of the easiest metals to affect laser-writing repairs to! Welding different metals groups is also possible, .i.e., gold to platinum, sterling to gold, etc.
Pearl/Bead Stringing – Did you know pearls should be restrung every few years? We can make your necklace or bracelet look like new – graduated or multi strands are no problem for our experts. Don’t neglect an pearl heirloom when it is so easy to get it restrung.

When the watch is reassembled, special oils are applied to lubricate all essential parts. We recommend that a general overhaul be performed every three years and that all water-resistant watches be tested once a year for case tightness. In addition, bracelet watch bands are polished and thoroughly cleaned.
Quartz Watch Full Service – Our quartz watch full service consists of the watch disassembly, the case and bracelet being polished and thoroughly cleaned in the ultrasonic and the battery being replaced.
