@LTD418:  I”ve had an heirloom ring appraised on 2 seperate occasions and it was roughly $50.  I am paranoid and refuse to deal with anywhere that makes me send it away so I usually wait until one of the local stores has an appraisal clinic where someone comes in and does it on the spot in front of you.

I haven’t, but I’ve checked into it in the past and in my area it seemed to be about $80.

I had my sapphire e-ring appraised for $75 by an independent gemologist (who was amazing btw for anyone in Chicago!), but I originally was going to go to Jared’s.  They have a once-a-month clinic, but were going to charge me $90 if I left the ring overnight with them or $110 if I attended the appraisal.  This seemed a little odd to me, but my main reason for not going with them was because I really did not want to leave my ring overnight with them.
