    Vincent Lash has years of professional experience in the jewelry and silver business and appraisal business. He does not buy items, only appraises them for complete confidence in the integrity of his appraisal. He has modern tools to give exact or close to exact information on the metals composition in the silver and the quality and age of the items. He is also a published author of several books involving jewelry, He took his time examining and explaining our pieces and provided a written appraisal within 2 days - over a weekend! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Vincent Lash and feel totally confident in his appraisal and advice!

    Danielle was great she couldn't help me as it was not in her expertise, but she tried to still help the best she could.

    Danielle did a great job on the appraisal of my great-great-grandmother's ring that I was gifted. She was very professional, knowledgeable and provided me with a very detailed appraisal. The appraisal was done in a very timely manner and it's worth noting that her prices are very reasonable. An added (unexpected) bonus, she did a thorough cleaning of the ring and returned it with a shine I had never seen. I will be using Danielle again very soon for additional pieces that need appraisals!

    Vincent Lash is a jewelry detective extrodinarie. With his excellent professional training, state of the art equipment (a portable electro spectrometer! which determines metal content), years of experience with gem stones, diamonds and pearls, and his keen eye, Vincent is the perfect person to go to when having your fine jewelry appraised. In the past my jewelry had been appraised by long established, reputable jewelers, but Vincent found discrepancies in my paperwork, such as mis-counted stones and Mikimoto Pearls that were NOT Mikimoto Pearls! Vincent requests that you bring your jewelry paperwork. While showing Vincent a pair of “Mikimoto Pearl” earrings with the corresponding paperwork, from a VERY reputable jewelry store in Ann Arbor MI, Vincent took one look at the pearls and said “those are not Mikimoto”. Even with the paperwork, he did not waver. We went back to that jewelry store the following week and showed them the “Mikimoto Pearls” and paperwork and told them about Vincent’s recent statement. At first they seemed confused because the original Mikimoto hardware had been changed and apparently that is where Mikimoto marks their jewelry, while Vincent had noticed the missing hardware as well, Vincent had also noticed the subpar quality of the pearls. I called Vincent on the phone, from the jewelry store in Ann Arbor and while on speakerphone, Vincent explained that he had noticed the hardware issue, but Vincent was insistent that the pearls were not Mikimoto (‘A’ quality 1998). Vincent said “maybe older Mikimoto pearls from the 1950’s”. Immediately, after the call with Vincent and because Vincent was so well informed, no questions were asked, we were given a new pair of ‘A’ quality Mikimoto Pearls! As an extra bonus, when we went to pick up the earrings, they had also given back the older pearls. Now, thanks to Vincent we really do have ‘A’ quality Mikimoto Pearl earrings! Vincent’s appraisals are very reasonable, and well worth the expense. Granted, my original 5 pieces of jewelry, turned into 25! But I appraisals for jewelry I had not previously known were valuable. I had a dirty, dingy chain holding a huge 1970’s peace symbol, Vincent saw the piece and asked to see the chain. He put it into his electro spectrometer and we discovered it was a 14k gold chain worth over $2300! It is for these reasons I call Vincent Lash the jewelry detective!

    He was exceptionally professional, skilled, thorough, and detail-oriented, while at the same time being equally personable, attentive, good-humored, and very comfortable to work with. Vince explained everything clearly and worked out a flexible payment plan that worked for us. The service he provided was clearly a financial investment, but it was well worth it. With his appraisals, we are now able to appropriately insure our belongings, providing us with reassurance and peace of mind.

    I highly recommend Vincent Lash for jewelry appraisal. Mr. Lash is highly qualified, experienced and extremely detail oriented when it comes to the jewelry appraisal process. I received exceptional service and a very detailed and descriptive appraisal which included: high quality photographs under magnification, silver and gold analysis, precise measurements and weights and overall gemstone quality evaluation. Thanks Vince!

    Vincent was very professional and I feel that he provided excellent service in a trustworthy manner. He is extremely knowledgeable and patiently answered any and all questions that I had regarding my jewelry. Pricing is more than fair for the information included in each appraisal. All in all, a very pleasant transaction and I would not hesitate to use his services again.

    A larger diamond was mounted in an engagement ring and certified to be of a particular quality only to discover that it was far less than claimed. The jeweler argued that the "branding" of the diamond alone should set it apart, when in fact it was just a lure. Mr. Lash took a lot of his personal time to make calls and inquiries and researched this for us so that we could make an informed decision when determining how to resolve our dispute with the jeweler. His knowledge and expertise were of great assistance and I would not hesitate to use him again. He went out of his way to help us and I valued his honest opinion.
