Jewellery Appraising


Karen Howard is gold and a pleasure to do business with. Her expertise and experience is very impressive and she's trusted by big jewellery stores to handle all their appraisals. You can't beat the affordable cost for her services. A winner!       Darrell Turnock -2016

“Karen Howard provided me with great service when she appraised my Mom’s remaining jewellery, when I was wrapping up her estate. Karen is knowledgable, trustworthy, and was great to deal with. Her smile, and her friendly attitude made dealing with her something I looked forward to. Her deep knowledge of her specialty was evident, and the final report she provided was very professional. I would highly recommend Karen’s services to anyone needing jewellery appraisals!”    D. Nix
