    I heard they were good. Had good rating on Google, Facebook and Yelp but I did read a few negatives. Just like my favorite Restaraunts so I gave them a try. I was so thrilled with Robert, appraiser that came out. Honest and easy to talk to. Knew the market and was very informative. Walked me thru the process and I signed the contract. They picked up the items a few days later. Had them online for auction in a few days. Sold in a week and about 30 days later I had a check. Communication via email with office about check was slow but it came and everything was well documented. I’d just suggest that work on their communication after the sale but again....it all worked as Robert said. Overall, pleased...a B+ or A- overall.

    In late November, my wife lost a 1 ct. old world cut diamond from her engagement ring setting at Walmart. Naturally, she was upset and since it was an inherited diamond with great sentimental value, it made the pain even worse. We located Tom via another website (A's List) and he made a next day appointment to appraise the loss for our insurance company's claim. The policy did not cover "wear and tear" and I was impressed with Tom's integrity that he didn't offer to change the appraisal. He correctly cited that the prongs had broken from wear over time. Fortunately, our insurance company did settle the claim in our favor, but the value was based upon an appraisal in 2002 and today's retail value was significantly more. Tom is a third generation Jeweler and he offered to locate an old world cut diamond via his family in New York, who specialize in estate sales. Within a week, he located a slightly larger old world cut diamond with near-perfect specifications that matched the lost diamond. The price was very fair and my total out of pocket expense was $500 to replace the diamond in a new setting. When my wife and I viewed the diamond the week before Christmas, we took several other diamond pieces to have the settings examined. Two items needed repairs and Tom performed them at no charge. The new diamond was placed in a better setting than before, but still using the original ring. Tom made a trip to his Chandler location to deliver it on Christmas Eve afternoon. I highly recommend using Tom's services. I have no doubts about his integrity, quality of repairs and his appraisals. He is very good at communicating via email and he responds to any questions rapidly. I would not hesitate to use his services exclusively in the future

    Tom is outstanding, he appraised 6 items for insurance purposes and provided detailed documentation supporting his appraisals within a few days. He examined all items in front of us, took photo's and explained the content of each item. Unlike other jewelers that request you to leave your item for a few days Tom, returns all items immediately which is very comforting. I will be returning to have a ring re-sized and upgrading a stone on my wife's ring. My rating is A; however to be honest it's A++.

    I recently had to travel to Arizona to dispose of my parents? estate. They had quite a bit of jewelry and when I asked my lawyer for the name of a reliable appraiser, he recommended Robert Connelly. My time in Phoenix was limited, but Robert was very accommodating and understood the need for a timely appraisal. He came to their apartment and looked at their antique jewelry, European jewelry, and what I thought was costume jewelry. (Surprisingly, some of what seemed to me to be pretty worthless turned out to be 18k gold!) He took the time to explain what pieces were damaged and whether some costly repairs would actually be worthwhile. He was extremely knowledgeable and very professional throughout the entire process, and I am so glad he was recommended. Overall, it was a very interesting learning experience for me, and once I knew what I was working with, the resulting dispositions went very smoothly.

  • Coin Gallery
    5.0
    I got a reference for Coin Gallery (and Richard the owner) from a friend who has done business with them for 30 years. Before going, I had spent a lot of time looking through eBay auctions to see what old coins (e.g. Morgan silver dollars) were going for. There were also some gold rings mom wanted me to sell but I could find nothing similar being sold on eBay. But for the coins I averaged out prices and came with what I figured I could get auctioning them off (call it $X). This would of course involve all the supporting activities like taking pictures, posting several auctions, waiting, doing the shipping etc. So I drove to Coin Gallery to get their estimate on the coins and other items. Richard was on the phone for awhile so I waited for him as I had wanted to mention my friend who referred me; there were several other people available to help but they politely allowed me to wait for Richard. During my wait I perused the cases and looked at all the coins (antique and collectible) and other items for sale, lots of items available as possible gifts if I had collector friends. Richard did help me personally which was great, he is nice and no one in the store is pressuring or comes off as superior in any way. It only took a few minutes to assess my items, and his price to buy my coins was within five dollars of $X. So I jumped at that, the time savings alone being tremendous. The big surprise was the rings though, which neither mom nor I had known anything about, those were worth about 2-3 times $X (the coin price)! Richard also offered check or cash, which was great although I don't like to carry a lot of cash so I took the check and deposited it right away. All in all dealing with Richard at the Coin Gallery was a painless and pleasant experience with a nice payoff at the end. For my first time selling coins or gold, I did not feel leery when it was over or wonder if I got scammed, I felt confident I got a fair deal and would certainly go there again or recommend their services to others in future.

    Tom performed an appraisal on my wedding set within 30 minutes and was able to email me the appraisal by the afternoon.

    First of all, Mr. Lynch doesn't work out of store-front he calls on all his clients personally. He arrived at the time of our meeting promptly, and was completely professional and honest in his appraisal of our silverware. He quickly ascertained what our pattern was, sorted out the solid silver pieces from the "plated," weighed the solid pieces, and called a business contact for current prices. He recommended we wait and watch silver prices to get the maximum return on the sale of our pattern, as silver prices were a bit below what he felt they would be in the near future. He estimated that with a bit of luck we might receive more than $600.00. We did wait, occasionally calling the store (to whom he recommended we sell our silverware) to check on silver prices, and finally made a sale that brought us nearly $700.00. We couldn't have been happier with Mr. Lynch's professionalism and guidance and strongly recommend him!

    We had two appointments with Tom, one for the appraisal of our jewelry and one for liquidating our silver. On both occasions, what he told us matched up with the research we had done on our own about the value of these items. He was always upfront about what our options were and gave good advice.

    Tom was EXCELLANT! He was willing to meet me at his Chandler location so I didn't need to drive up to Scottsdale. Including writing a detailed appraisal that I could use for insurance, he also answered questions on additional jewelry and he was very informative on different gems. Also his pricing was fair. I couldn't ask for more!
