Gemstone & Jewellery Valuations

Mystic Diamonds Appraisers

The company has a qualified GIA Gemologist in the team who will conduct examinations of personal jewellery for appraisals in their laboratory, in your store or in a bank. Clients can wait while examinations are done. This ensures client trust, in that they may want to feel part of the examination. We can also answer client questions. Colour photographs of the complete inventory are included with each appraisal report.

Mystic Diamonds Appraisers offers jewellery appraisals for probate, insurance, community property settlements, and estate purposes.

Appraisals are by appointment and fees are based upon hourly rates. For additional information or business references, please call Martha du Plessis GIA Gemologist, AJP, GD  on +27 79 04 00 809.

Expert Gem And Jewellery Appraisals  DONE WHILE YOU WAIT by an Accredited Senior Gemmologist (AGA)

We offer impartial, unbiased valuations on jewellery, diamonds and coloured gemstones. Unbiased because we do not buy and sell jewellery. Gold and foreign exchange prices change daily which directly affect the value of your gemstones and jewellery. If your items are undervalued your insurance company will only pay according to your previous valuation certificate which could cost you dearly.

If you are wanting to sell your jewellery or gemstones get them valued so that you are in control of the price you should get.

All valuations are performed by Jeremy Rothon FGA.
To schedule an appointment, call Jeremy on 021 761 1746.
