Frequently Asked Questions About Geolat Appraisal Services


Here you will find some of the common questions we are asked prior to the appraisal process. If you have a question you would like to ask, feel free to call us at 972-239-9314.

Will I take my appraisal home with me?

No. You will receive your written appraisal in the mail in two to three weeks. You will receive two complete copies of your appraisal, along with digital photographs.

Do I have to leave my jewelry?

No. You may schedule an appointment and can wait for the appraisal to be completed. Difficult-to-identify items may require you to leave the item in order for research to be done and a proper appraisal created.

Do you have to take the stones out of the mounting to perform the appraisal?

No, we don’t. However, if there is a concern about the quality of the piece (compared to the purchase description), we may ask your permission to do so.

How much will my appraisal cost?

Our fees are based on time. If you would like an exact dollar amount, you may ask for a quote before your appraisal begins. One way to economize is to bring all available paperwork regarding your property to our office at one time. This will reduce the amount of research we will have to complete and save you time and money.

What should I bring to my appraisal?

Any receipts, certification, old appraisals or miscellaneous information that you may have.

If I have a valuable item I would like to sell, but am concerned I won’t be able to sell it for what it is worth, can you help me?

Yes! We offer Brokerage Services that are aimed at getting you the best possible price for your item.

Do you take credit cards?

Yes, we accept Mastercard, Visa and we will gladly accept cash or a personal check at the end of your visit.
