and thank you for your interest in jewelry appraisal!
As an independent, professional jewelry appraiser I have been serving southern Arizona since 1991. My office is now located at Campbell and River, Tucson, AZ.
I carry out my professional practice in conformity with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP) of the Appraisal Foundation and the Principles of Appraisal Practice and Code of Ethics of the American Society of Appraisers.
My philosophy is that, as an appraiser, I maintain a high level of professional practice by setting forth standards of integrity, impartiality, objectivity, honesty, independent judgment, ethical conduct and competency in acceptance and performance of an assignment.
I am professionally qualified to render appraisals for insurance, estate tax, equitable distribution, donation, dissolution of marriage, bankruptcy, sale and any other conceivable use. I am familiar with all levels of jewelry marketplace and am an expert in market research and analysis.
A very unique service I provide that no other jewelry appraiser offers in Arizona is the ability to network with my associate, Ms. Tracy Aros of Artabella Jewelry Appraisals.
This is especially beneficial for large appraisals where we are able to cut the total appraisal time in half. In addition, our labs are portable so we can travel to appraisals outside the Tucson area. This can be particularly beneficial when our client is required to be present during the examination and identification of jewelry items such as in the case of an estate settlement.
