Len Margolis is a GIA Graduate Gemologist as well as a Certified Insurance Appraiser with over 30 years’ experience. Most commonly appraisals can be done on fine jewelry and watches. However, we can also appraise sterling silver, flatware & hollowware.
• Appraisals are available for insurance, estate or liquidation purposes.
• Insurance appraisals provide information for the replacement value of your items.
• An estate appraisal is used for probate purposes and is based upon a fair market value.
• Liquidation is to determine the cash value of the items.
Appraisal services are based upon an hourly rate and will be completed within a reasonable amount of time. In order to provide a detailed description and type-written documentation, we are unable to provide these services “while you wait.” We recommend updating appraisals every 3-5 years to maintain the latest market value.
