Certified Gemologist Appraisers
In San Luis Obispo county, it’s difficult to find a gemologist certified for insurance appraising. K.Jons Diamonds & Gems is proud to staff two Certified Gemologist Appraisers (AGS) who are also Graduate Gemolgists ( GIA), the only two Certified Appraisers in San Luis Obispo county. In order to become a Graduate Gemologist, our appraisers have to complete extensive industry training that includes diamond grading, gemstone identification, and colored gemstone grading. There are only a few members of our industry that attain the level of Graduate Gemologist.
Beyond the Graduate Gemologist is the Certified Gemologist Appraiser. This level of certification goes beyond identification and grading to the knowledge of appraising. Our appraisers are trained in Insurance Appraisals, Estate Appraisals, Offers to Buy, and multiple other types of appraisals. These written reports will give you everything you need to know about your jewelry. Additionally, if you need a less-detailed summary, we are available to give verbal evaluations of your jewelry.
We also staff two Certified Gemologists (AGS), who are trained in insurance appraising, as well. Our appraisers have extensive industry and gemological knowledge. Continuing education keeps them current on gemological values and trends.
