Assigning Market Values for Over 100 Years
Merkley Kendrick Jewelers has been helping to assign market values to fine jewelry and timepieces for over 100 years. Our thorough appraisal process has been highly rated in the market and trusted by many in the Louisville area and beyond.
Our Thorough Appraisal Process
Our appraisal process begins with a detailed check-in procedure where we document the specifics and the estimated value for all pieces included in the request. If the diamonds do not have a serial number established, our team will fingerprint the larger stones so our clients can rest easy that their diamond will be the same stone returned upon pick-up.
Once the appraisal is complete, we will walk our client through the details of the assessment and then provide written documentation for their records.
The fingerprint documentation will remain on file with Merkley Kendrick for future work, emergencies, or a need for immediate verification.
The length of time for an appraisal will vary based on the pieces involved in the project and the intricacy of the stones. We will be able to provide you with an estimate once we discuss the project.
Our gemologists are genuinely the most qualified in the area. They have completed the requirements necessary to hold the following titles:
• GIA Certified Gemologist • Certified Gemologist Appraiser
