Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm
Address: 460 Sainte Catherine West, Suite 913, Montreal (QC) H3B 1A7

WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING SERVICES:

Quick verbal report: to allow you to make your decisions in a very short time, or because we see very quickly that the value of the gem or jewel does not justify the production of a written certificate.

Certificate of appraisal of gems (rough or faceted), jewellery and watches. Whether it is for resale (value on the second hand market), for a new replacement, or for insurance purposes; or simply because you want to know the value of your estate.
Each certificate contains a description, photo of the jewel or gem, as well as its appraisal.

Inventory of gems, jewels and watches within the framework of a donation, inheritance, separation, liquidation, for exhibitions and presentations abroad are available. Inventories of several pieces of jewellery are also valid for insurance purposes.

Production of a partial report of condition on one of the elements of the piece of jewellery. Do you have a doubt about one of the diamonds in a ring for example? We can evaluate.

Appraisal in case of theft or loss on presentation of evidence (photos, videos, invoices).

Advice on the purchase or sale of a gem.
We can offer you the assistance of our network to develop your business.

Professional speaker as an expert in court, for an evaluation, or an impartial opinion.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

All our appraisals are confidential. The appraisal will only be given to the person who has requested our services. In case of return to one of the company’s staff members, an email from the person in charge and a power of attorney accompanied by the ID card must be provided.

Be careful when crossing borders! Customs officers can ask you if the jewels that you have on you or in your luggage are legal inventory of your company. We can help you in the description of your jewels or your gems to facilitate the work of the customs (in particular the drafting of your ATA carnet).

In case of theft, the appraisal report can be transmitted directly to the police to accelerate the identification of your goods (or those of your customers). The photos we take as well as the parameters of weight, size and visible details will help the investigators. If the authorities need our services to identify a jewel that has been stolen, we are at your side.

We also work on an assignment basis with a previously discussed and agreed budget rather than an hourly rate.

We also offer a monthly or annual service package.
