NE Gem Labs and Leslie are the greatest! – I had a couple of pieces apprasied in 2004 at their office in CT. Over the last few years, we acquired some new items, and wanted those appraised and the older appraisal updated. I looked on line to find them again and was very happy, to discover they now have an office in my home state of MA.
My Husband and I met with Leslie and she was as nice as she could be. She documented all our jewlery, took pictures and gave us a quick overview of what we should expect. She was honest enough to let us know that the old watches, which were left to my Husband, were really not worth too much and she didn't think it would be worth our while to have a full appraisal done on them. How's that for integrity?
When I picked up the items, they were sparkling clean and looked like new. Leslie provided me with a very professional and detailed appraisal package, along with a copy to give to the insurer. I was also pleasantly surprised at how affordable her pricing was.
I have a new appraiser for life! Thanks Leslie!
Informative and Helpful – I was given my grandmother’s diamond ring ten years ago and had it appraised for insurance purposes at what I thought was a reputable jewelry store. Recently, I decided I should update the appraisal to make sure it was properly insured. A friend of mine recommended Leslie at New England Gem Lab in Newton. I’m so happy she did. Leslie spent a lot of time with me explaining exactly what the diamond was and how she graded it. It turned out that the original appraisal was wrong in two regards. First they said it was a “mine-cut” diamond and Leslie determined that it was actually an “old European-cut” diamond, and that the original appraisal had underestimated the carat weight. She wrote a very thorough, professional appraisal. Leslie was great – she made the whole process interesting and easy. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs jewelry appraised.
Great Experience, Extremely Helpful – My wife has collected a lot of jewelry over the past 15 years (both contemporary and older pieces.) Some of it she wears, some of it she doesn't. We wanted to figure out what the jewelry was worth, to determine if we wanted to sell anything she doesn't wear anymore. We took the jewelry to Leslie at New England Gem Lab in Newton. She was terrific -- very knowledgeable and easy to work with. She appraised all the jewelry for us, did a written appraisal of the pieces we were keeping (so we could get them insured) and then helped us to sell the pieces we did not want. I would definitely recommend her!
