Jewelry Appraisal at Warren, Ohio’s Thom Duma Fine Jewelers

In the excitement of purchasing an expensive timepiece or piece of fine jewelry, it’s easy to forget that a professional jewelry appraisal can protect you against theft or loss. At Thom Duma Fine Jewelers, we have two GIA and AGS trained appraisers to make sure the items that you cherish are expertly valued and documented, complete with pictures and measurements.


If your fine jewelry becomes lost or stolen, a jewelry appraisal from Thom Duma Fine Jewelers can help you manufacture or replace your cherished items — and provide essential details should a loss occur.

How Jewelry Appraisal Works

Although no law requires a jewelry appraiser to have certification, it is in your best interest to have an appraisal done by a certified gemologist. Certified gemologists, such as those at Thom Duma Fine Jewelers, understand the attributes that make a piece worth its value. They also understand current trends, and how those trends affect the value of your piece. When you bring your jewelry to Thom Duma Fine Jewelers for an appraisal, we’ll give your piece the careful attention it deserves.

There are a variety of reasons to have fine jewelry or a timepiece appraised. In many cases, owners need written verification of value for insurance purposes. Other times, an appraisal is needed prior to sale, or is required to settle an estate. Our written appraisals feature photographs as well as a detailed description of the piece that includes its condition and any recommended repairs. Plan to bring any supporting documentation to your appointment, including purchase or restoration receipts, GIA certificate or other relevant information.
