Appraisal service is also a specialty of David Wachler & Sons. We have Gemologists on staff to evaluate every piece. We give a realistic replacement value so you are not overpaying for insurance coverage. Once again, this service is done on site so you can rest assured that your items are well taken care of. Photos are also taken of the items, so they can be easy to identify. We do not believe in charging according to the value of the piece. A $25,000 item can sometimes take less time than a $1,000 item. Charging for an appraisal is strictly according to the time it takes. We present you with two copies, one for your insurance company and one for your records. We keep a copy for our records as well.
