As we all know, the world markets are in a continual state of flux. This is reflected in the market price of commodities such as gold, platinum, silver and gemstones.  These changes can affect the value of your jewelry. That is only one reason appraisals are important. Appraisals are also needed for updating an insurance policy, the completion of an estate and the liquidation of assets. Friend and Company can assist you in all of your appraising needs. We have a reasonable appraisal fee of $90 for the first piece and $50 for each additional piece. We request that you call or email to schedule an appointment with our Independent Certified Gemologist Appraiser.
