Gemstones appraisal

For the last decade the demand for fancy colored diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds has been rapidly increasing all over the world. And while gemstones achieve remarkable prices at auction, many jewellery owners are still unaware of the real value of their antique jewels.

Ineichen’s experts will gladly help jewelry owners understand their true market value and get the top price at the auction.

To get a fast, free of charge and confidential verbal estimate with no obligations, please fill in our online form and attach color photographs of each item including maker’s marks and damaged areas, or just call us +41 44 298 11 44 to arrange an appointment for a valuation in our office located in the center of Zurich.

Remember that the price largely depends on the size on the stone, as well as on its clarity, cut and color. Jewelry created by the great Houses such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari and Tiffany is also in high demand. Certifications from Gemmological Institute of America, the European Gemological Laboratory, the International Gemological Institute or the Gemological Association only helps matters.

After assessing your jewelry, our expert will establish the estimated value and the starting price. The starting price is the price that is first called for the object at auction. The estimated value represents the price expectations of the specialist.

Do not hesitate to contact us for a noncommittal, free of charge verbal estimate in view of a possible later sale at one of our bi-annual auctions.


* For written expertise or estimates for insurance purposes we will charge you a fee according to the time spent, a fee that will be reimbursed upon delivery of these objects to one of our auctions.
