- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Check qualifications carefully. A jewelry appraiser should be both a trained gemologist and a trained appraiser. There are only a few hundred professionally trained jewelry appraisers in the country. Be frank with your appraiser about your needs. Professionals will protect your confidentiality. Clean your jewelry thoroughly and have any needed repairs carried out before the appraisal.
