Schedule an Appointment
If you need to have your jewelry appraised... you've found the right place! We offer Professional Jewelry Appraisals... Diamond appraisals, engagement ring appraisals, watch appraisals, Gemstone Appraisals — We appraisal all types of fine jewelry for Insurance, Estate, Divorce, or "just checking" appraisals. And, at the Jewelry Judge, we don’t buy or sell jewelry...We appraise it!
The Jewelry Judge is the home of Barry S. Block, New York's first and Long Island's only, Master Gemologist Appraiser®(ASA). Unlike your local Jewelers, here at the Jewelry Judge, we don't buy or sell jewelry. Our only job is to appraise your jewelry in front of you, "while you watch". We are not jewelry buyers so we remain completely impartial. Established in 1989, we still don't buy or sell jewelry. As Certified Professional Appraisers, all appraisals are as complete as they can possibly be, including a photo of your item on each of the individually itemized computer-generated documents. If a diamond is over 1 carat, your diamond appraisal will be accompanied by a full grading report, with a plot (drawing) of the internal characteristics for identification. We tell you everything we're doing as we go through the appraisal process, giving you a great education as well.
Our Mission Statement
"A Jewelry Judge appraisal blends together art and Science to preserve the past and protect the future"
