Who can appraise jewelry?

Thumbtack Editors

A jewelry appraiser can appraise your pieces and determine its value. However, make sure the appraiser you hire has the proper training, experience and education. One way to help ensure this is to ask about their credentials and certifications. 

For example, find out if they’re a Certified Gemologist Appraiser (CGA) or Independent Certified Gemologist Appraiser (ICGA) with the American Gem Society. Or, perhaps they’re certified by the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers? Do your research and determine if the pro you’re considering is qualified to appraise your jewelry
