              GIA Graduate Gemologists • Insurance Appraisals • Estate Appraisals • Insurance Documentation
TOJ Custom Jewelry is uniquely qualified to appraise your fine jewelry and gemstones. Our experienced staff has the background and gemological training to do a professional job of evaluating the current value of your precious keepsakes.

While these items are priceless to you, it's important to remember that the value of the precious metal and gems that comprise your fine jewelry is constantly changing due to market conditions. Gold, for instance, has seen its value double over the past 10 years.

Accurate appraisals are important because if your jewelry is ever lost, stolen or damaged, your insurance company will refer to the appraisal document to settle the claim. An outdated appraisal will likely result in you being under-insured, and that could cost you thousands. 

We recommend updating your appraisals every three to five years. Whether it's an engagement ring you wear every day or a piece you've just inherited from your grandmother's estate, we're ready to offer an appraisal for your security and peace of mind..

Jewelry Appraisal Service

​Consultation for Design

TOJ's master jeweler will set down with you in our Ludington showroom consult office and go over details of the custom jewelry design. We will do a basic pencil sketch of the idea and calculate a rough estimate of the cost involved during the consult. Once we have the idea down and the project fits your budget we will turn the pencil sketch into a cad design. 

The Take -In Process

Once the problems are identified and the solutions are agreed upon we will measure any gemstones and take photos of the item and input that info into our database. At that time you will receive a printed receipt and an emailed receipt with a description of the items left and the work being done.          

​Cad Design Renderings for Custom Design

Within 1 to 5 days you will receive the renderings of the design discussed along with the final exact quote for that dream piece. Now you to look over the design and approve or request modifications. Once approved we will grow the model on our 3D printer.
