One of the unique aspects of Rebecca McIntosh's services is her ability to provide appraisals while you wait.

All appraisal observations are completed while you wait. You will receive your official appraisal report within 2 weeks via email through our Instappraise Portal.

Occasionally, a piece may need to be kept by Rebecca for additional testing either in-house or sent to a reputable gemology laboratory. This is something that will be discussed during your appraisal appointment.

In addition to her appraisal services, Rebecca McIntosh also offers gemology laboratory services. This includes gemstone identification, grading, and identification reports. Whether you have a loose gemstone that needs to be identified or want to have your gemstone certified, Rebecca McIntosh can provide you with accurate and trustworthy results using the latest gemology tools, techniques, and technology.

What to bring for your appraisal

Please bring any documented history of the pieces for the appraisal, including receipts that detail vendors and other pertinent information. It's crucial to bring along laboratory reports, previous appraisals, and any other paperwork that could shed light on factors affecting the jewelry's value, like its display history or craftsmanship by a master artisan. While some details might be known to the appraiser, others may not, making every piece of documentation essential in accurately assessing your jewelry's worth.

Fine jewelry linked to historical events typically hold higher value, especially if a family member played a role in the event. For instance, a photograph connecting that individual to the item being appraised help to establish the piece's provenance. We will scan any photo evidence of the piece's provenance to include in the appraisal.
