Appraisals and Valuations

We can appraise any item for any particular reason or need. There are different ways to look at valuations. Whether it is for insurance replacement or an offer to buy, your item may have different valuations. A valuation would be conducted to determine if we would wish to purchase your item for re-conditioning and re-sale and what the dollar offer for your item might be.

The valuation criteria include, but are not limited to, the following; carat weight of diamonds and coloured stones, precious metal weight, age, condition, marketability, and provenance. If you have further questions on the subject of buying, selling, and valuation of your goods call us or come on into our showroom at 24 Bellair Street in the heart of Toronto’s Yorkville community. Our leading gemologists and expert staff will collaborate to determine the best course of action regarding your item.

At Ritchies Estate Jewellery, we only buy and sell the highest quality estate jewellery and finest timepieces from all over the world. We are confident that our goods will exceed your expectations for quality. It is noted that estate jewellery and or timepieces regardless of origin or history may have slight blemishes or imperfections. Some pieces due to their age and story were made long before today’s modern jewellery manufacturing tools and techniques thereby adding to their interest!
