Rasmussen Diamonds is uniquely qualified to appraise your fine jewelry and gemstones. Our experienced staff has the background and gemological training to do a professional job of evaluating the current value of your precious keepsakes.
Rasmussen Diamonds is proud to have a Certified Gemologist Appraiser on staff. There are only 400 CGAs in North America. All CGAs must recertify for their title yearly. Our on-site gem laboratory is accredited by the American Gem Society and the Independent Jewelers Organization. Our appraiser is also a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America. Established in 1931, the GIA is the world's foremost authority on diamonds, colored gemstones and pearls. The Graduate Gemologist diploma is their highest title, with the only passing grade being 100%.
While these items are priceless to you, it's important to remember that the value of the precious metal and gems that comprise your fine jewelry is constantly changing due to market conditions. Gold, for instance, has seen its value double over the past 10 years.
Accurate appraisals are important because if your jewelry is ever lost, stolen or damaged, your insurance company will refer to the appraisal document to settle the claim. An outdated appraisal will likely result in you being under-insured, and that could cost you thousands.
We recommend updating your appraisals every three to five years. Whether it's an engagement ring you wear every day or a piece you've just inherited from your grandmother's estate, we're ready to offer an appraisal for your security and peace of mind.
Appraisals are done by appointment. You may schedule your appointment below.
