  • SHEILA'S FINE JEWELRY SHOP
    5.0
    I have been using Shiela's for about 2 years now for all of my jewelry needs and I will never go anywhere else. Shiela and Mike (owners) have been in the jewelry business for many years and are very knowledgeable about diamonds, gold, gemstones, etc. They are very fair in price for what you get, not only for repairs and appraisals but for sales. And they are also just great people: Very accommodating, courteous, professional, knowledgeable and treat each customer with value. If you need something ordered, even a rare diamond, they can do that, and their price will be lower than anybody else's, I can tell you that

    Barbara was puncutal, professional and fast. She was very curteous and knowledable appraising the antiques we wanted to value for later sale. She knew historical information and value of the antique items and told approximate age. I would recommend her and would work with her again.

  • HAMILTON JEWELERS
    5.0
    It went extremely well. First some background. These rings were purchased from the Hamilton store in Lawrenceville, NJ These people have been in business over 100 years and have an excellent reputation. The Lawrenceville store has since been closed and the closest store is in Princeton, NJ. We now live in Milwaukee; and on our trips to the East Coast we stop in the store where they clean and inspect the rings for free. As mentioned earlier, three diamonds were loose in the setting. This repair would normally have taken 10 days to 2 weeks. But since we were not able to stay but 3 more days, Hamilton agreed to complete the work by "closing time" (5PM) on Sat 9-6-14. On Saturday, we arrived early at 4:15PM and the work was completed. The ring was sparkling clean and beautifully polished. But there's more. Hamilton's service is "over the top". Now, the engagement ring (that did not require repair) although clean, looked dull next to the wedding ring. But at our request, they polished the engagement ring on the spot and at no additional charge. The two rings now look beautiful together. We were on our way in less than 30 minutes. We gave them a "C" on professionalism only because of an annoying practice of theirs to quiz customers as to how much they paid for their jewelry. And this quiz is conducted within earshot of the public. They need to devise a better way to get this information. Plus we don't understand why they need it. In any case, because of their "over the top" service our respect for them has been renewed. We give them an "A". They earned it

  • Derzon Coins & Jewelry
    5.0
    She explained the process she was using to assess the quality of the sterling, and explained how she knew what was sterling but underweight (90% or European) or was silverplate. She weighed each item with care and then provided us with a check on the spot.

  • Derzon Coins & Jewelry
    5.0
    The staff at Derzon's got to me pretty quickly. I just showed up with a bucket of old coins that my grandmother had left to my family when she died. The lady who helped us was SUPER fast; she just flipped through the coins one by one and could tell us whether it was worth it for us to sell it, to "spend it" (not worth more than face value), or to "give it to any kids we knew!" (not worth what Grandma paid for it; memorial coins, etc). We had a stack of Indian Head pennies and she checked them more carefully, looking for rare ones, just in case we had one and didn't recognize it. We also had gold coins and she paid us the fair market value for the gold in the coin, as well as the silver content of older American coins. They purchase foreign coin by the pound (I don't think they specialize in rare/antique foreign coin) and I had some old foreign coins, so I just brought them home so my husband could add them to his small coin collection. I left in less than 30 minutes with a big check! Super easy and fast

    Barbara was excellent! She was thorough but quick. I didn't think that she would get thru all the items in the time I planned for but she did. The information she gave us (giving approximate time periods, etc) was interesting and some items ended up being worth more than I anticipated. It gave me a good idea on the value of items I plan to sell and a value for the items I plan to pass on to my children. I would definitely use Barbara again

  • HOMANS GOLDSMITH DIRECT
    5.0
    I brought in multiple pieces of jewlery for insurance appraisal as well as pieces that needed repair, many of them quite old. They immediately discussed each individual piece with me, giving me information regarding appraisals and options for repairs. I was most impressed with the thoroughness of knowledge both possessed regarding types of older jewlery. They really knew their stuff. In addition, they were very honest about what repairing would entail and whether or not repair was even possible given the condition of a piece and the metals used in construction. They were also honest about the appraisals and, if the various gems were more difficult to identify, the need to send them out for more expert identification so as to make the appraisal as accurate as possible. They were prompt in delivery of service within the time frame they promised. The prices, given the services performed, were very reasonable. I will absolutely use their services again and would put them at the top of my list if I want to buy any jewelry in the future
