What do I do with jewellery that has been passed on to me?

Many people have received jewellery from family members who no longer want or need it. Not knowing if the jewellery has any value is a common concern. We offer a free of charge consultation with our jeweller (by appointment) who will let you know which items are costume jewellery and which have value as jewellery. Of course, sentimental value can’t be measured, but if you require an appraisal we would be happy to do it for you.

We can appraise your jewellery for whatever purpose that is required. Typically, appraisals start at $35 and, will take 24 to 72 hours to complete. Special arrangements, at an additional charge, can be made if you require the appraisal to be done while you wait. For more information on jewellery appraisals, please refer to the CJA website. (www.canadianjewellers.com then put “Appraisal” in the search bar) If you are not in our area, you can also find a list of Certified Appraisal Professionals on this site.  You can also refer to our blog post on Appraisals from January 3rd, 2015.
