We have two Graduate Gemologists onsite to appraise your jewelry. Appraisals are done at no charge for new Colonial Jewelers purchases. Appraisals for pieces not purchased at Colonial Jewelers take approximately one week to complete and the price ranges based on the size/complexity of the item. We are happy to give you an estimate for the appraisal fee when you drop off the item with us. The items are kept in our safe at all times and all appraisals are done on premises.
