Horrible Appraisal Service – I purchased my engagement ring two years ago for $10,000. I had several appraisals done by independents at that time, and all appraisers were within dollars of what I spent. I was pleased. Recently I was told my insurance broker a new appraisal was needed because metal and stone prices went up since I purchased my ring. I went to the Jewelry Judge, and was stunned at what I was told. He trashed the quality of the ring, spent 20 minutes making me feel like an idiot for purchasing it. Then appraised it for less than what I spent two years ago! I was shocked, however I felt I needed another opinion as I worked for months pricing out stones and settings when I made my purchase and felt confident in my decision. I called a Lab my friend suggested in Manhattan, and took his appraisal and my ring for another evaluation. The appraiser could not believe what he read, and disagreed with the horror I was told. The ring quality was fine, and the ring appraised for 12,000. When I called the Jewelry Judge about the discrepancy, he refused to refund my money, and insisted the lab was wrong, and I should report them. It was frustrating. But I had to write it off as a small lesson learned.
I strongly suggest doing your research on appraisers before walking in like I did. We pay a ton of money on insurance to protect our valuables. This place is a joke.
I challenge the writer of this bogus review to contact me? This has never happened here at the Jewelry Judge?
