Appraisal sites we like.
AGR has been in the jewelry business for quite a while and we’ve developed a lot of friends and contacts. Here are a few. You’ll notice, by the way, that there are no jewelry stores or other sorts of jewelers here. That’s not because we don’t know and there’s no slight intended against the fine jewelers out there. It’s just that it’s a conflict of interest as an appraiser to look like there’s an endorsement of one store over another. These are purely Appraisal Links provided to assist your education. They include labs for jewelers, schools for jewelers and appraisers and other industry connections that people find interesting. They are in no particular order and they are in no way intended to be slight anyone excluded.
