Hmm, they should be able to do it without any certificate.  That’s how my heirloom ring was done.  I think they just measure the stone in the setting without removing it (and also make a juedgement on clarity, color, etc).

my Fiance bought the diamond from the jeweler who made my setting. He just issued an appraisal to him when he picked up the ring.

The process of getting my ring appraised was exactly like lolot experienced.


We had bought my ring while on vacation in St. Thomas, so of course, I wanted to make sure that we got what we were told we were getting.  The guy sat down and looked at the ring, and gave me a verbal apparaisal.  He would have written it, but it matched what we had gotten from the store we bought it from.


The appraiser could not confirm the exact carat size of the diamond because it was set, but he was able to make an estimate.

We made an appointment with a local appraiser.

When we got there we told him nothing about the rings. He took them and put them on a scale. Then he took his gauge and measured the stones, then put it under a microscope then took pics. He then told us about the different rings. All this was done with the stone still inside the setting of the ring.

In 2 weeks we recieved the paperwork, including pics. We took those appraisals to the insurance company to put them on our house insurance.
