I had a lot of jewelry from my family estates, and I didn't know what was real and what was not. These folks worked with me for two days, and when I left, I knew what I had, and had appraisals for the things that were valuable. They did exactly what I needed, and were a delight to work with. I am a very happy customer.

I needed an appraisal for my engagement ring, and I was able make an online reservation on the same day and received excellent service. I highly recommend this place!

I needed a diamond appraised and the ring fixed. Mary and Ben appraised it in my presence. Their information about Crown of Light diamonds was profound, and everything about them was professional.They both appraise the stone, and their ratings agreed perfectly. Sure gives you confidence.

Ben M.



Excellent service...the whole process was smooth and easy. Ben was on point with the GIA report. We like the step-by-step process and level of detail Ben, Mary, and Linda. If the need arises I will be back to visit the Jewelry Judge.

Ben and his staff provided a most enjoyable and professional appraisal experience. I can highly recommend the Jewelry Judge.

I had a consultation and an appraisal done and I was pleased to say that you can put all your trust in Ben Gordon and his agents. They are very educated in this field and knowledgeable beyond my expectations. They are more thorough than I could have ever expected and reasonable with their prices.

I can't say anything better than the other reviews. Mr. Gordon and his team are outstanding. Very professional and personable. Not only did we receive two excellent appraisals but we also had a grand experience. You just don't find better service anywhere. We left smiling and happy.

A professional, educational and awesome experience. The staff treats you like family with their warm and inviting manner. I learned so much and found the process quite interesting. I will be returning soon for additional appraisals. Highly recommend this safe and secure business.

Excellent Experience

I did not know having your jewelry appraised can be an awesome experience. I was impressed and enjoyed every step it was a great learning experience. Mr Gordon is the "Master". I was grinning ear to ear as he blurted all the right info about my piece. It truly is service with a heart. Linda and Mary were so genuine and friendly. I should call them the awesome theresome���� Look no further this is the ultimate place to go for appraisal. Excellent service, friendliest staff, secured site, yumny chocolate, surprise important gift...they have this down to a science! Thank u!

Everyone in the office is very professional and personable. They look time to explain the entire process and I was impressed that both Ben and Mary reviewed my bracelet and independently arrived at the same conclusion. The appraisal report was very detailed and the entire experience was exceptional. I will definitely use them again and highly recommend this team - excellent!

Great Service

There is a lot of activity going on in this office! I needed my wedding set re-appraised for insurance and they did a wonderful job. I couldn't have asked for more.

Fantastic Experience.

I needed two watches appraised for insurance. I called, made a same day appointment, and was met by Linda G. at the door. She was really kind and knowledgable. I then went through the appraisal process with Mary, who was very thorough, organized, and kind. Ben G. was also there and collaborated with Mary through the process. This appraisal office is incredible. Not only are they fair and honest, they are FUN. Great experience all around.

Phenomenal experience

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Gordon and his staff today while having two pieces appraised. He was so personable! He explained every aspect of the apprasial process and I was in the room the entire time. Mr. Gordon identified a loose stone during the examination. I was able to have the loose stone repaired and both pieces polished before my departure!! The prices were very readable for the quality of service received. Thank you again Mr. Gordon!!

Michelle S.



I took 3 items to be appraised , and had GIA certification for 2 of them. Ben and Mary were practically spot on compared to the GIA certifications. I was impressed, and the process itself was really interesting to watch. Everyone was very friendly and processional, and I would highly recommend them.

Sandy L.



We had a large amount of estate jewelry that needed to be appraised and I couldn't be happier with the professional service we received! I also felt very secure with leaving the items with them for several days. Ben was a delight and Mary was very knowledgeable and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone! Thank you Mary & Ben!

Everyone at this place was great! They were very pleasant to work with and very helpful in explaining the process.

Great experience

Very personable and professional,the jewelry never leaves your sight. We were so impressed we left a ring to be resized. The value that you receive is worth than you pay.

Selected Ben to have an out of state stone shipped to for evaluation prior to buying! The seller felt comfortable with an independent person and so did I - he is incredible in his knowledge and experience, truthful, honest, pleasant, and extremely accurate and helpful! A pure pleasure to have as an ally in the jewelry world - I hope I have the opportunity to work with him even more in the future!

I made an appointment to see the “Jewelry Judge”, Ben Carson on Saturday morning and was able to secure a time slot that same afternoon. I went with my fiancee and we were greeted by a lady who went through the step by step process with us. She was kind and informative. She asked us if we had the GIA certification with us and was told to not show Mr. Carson until he was finished the appraisal. This way, they could compare and show us the results or “accuracy” of their appraisal.

The whole experience was just fascinating. You can immediately tell that he has such a passion for his work. He was extremely thorough and sure enough, he was able to match the specifications on the GIA certificate. He was also very helpful in giving information such as insurance, cleaning, maintaining etc.

We were in and out in about an hour and my ring never left my sight. 5 star service that’s well worth the price!

Great Experience!

We read such great reviews on line and figured this was our best bet for jewelry appraisal. We brought in a number of old family pieces we weren't sure about. The whole "team" was welcoming, professional and just made us feel at home. Ben (Mr. Gordon) was delightful and informative as he got down to business. His years in the biz make him top quality, but his passion & enthusiasm is equal. Ben's wife, Linda was wonderful, helping us make decisions about repairs on a few rings. We have been in a couple times for appraisals and repairs. We always leave smiling! Glad we believed those reviews!
