Gemological Laboratory Appraisals
Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America specializing in appraisals of fine jewelry, diamonds, and gemstones for insurance, estate, and litigation purposes. Bruce is listed with numerous insurance companies including Jewelers Mutual and Chubb Insurance as a certified jewelry appraiser.
Bruce J Snider G.G.-GIA also offers fair market value reports providing an estimate of the likely selling price of a piece of jewelry if it is sold in its current, as-is condition, in its most common market. An example of fair market value might be the price that an item sells for at a local auction or on Ebay or other selling venues.
For clients who have unknown faceted gemstones wishing to authenticate what the material actually is, if it's natural, synthetic or lab created, it's clarity and color grade, along with it's value - We offer gemological identification and evaluation reports .
Disclaimer: Due to the influx of laboratory created diamonds, diamonds must be accompanied with
validating documentation such as gemological reports from GIA, IGI, EGL, GCAL, etc.,
original purchase reciepts, or insurance documentation.
Gemological Laboratory Appraisals/Bruce J Snider LLC holds the right to turn down appraisal requests.
