Exceptional Appraisal And Recutting Services
J. Thomson Custom Jewelers has re-cut many chipped and damaged diamonds, as well as Lab Certification of loose stones for resale. Please call us for this special service today. Appraisals can be very confusing with many different reasons that a person wants an appraisal. The Number one reason is for jewelry insurance. Whether you use your homeowners "rider" coverage or our highly recommended jewelers mutual insurance, you MUST have a signed and cosigned jewelry appraisal letter. We have a GIA graduate gemologist to assist in appraisals and "stone verification" services. Go to http://www.perfectcircleinsurance.com/ to get the quotes for Jeweler's Mutual.
Jewelers Mutual Insurance (JMI)
In almost 20 years, we have NEVER had a JMI covered item which was denied replacement for any reason.
The number two reason you may need an appraisal is because a loved one has passed away and that person's jewelry is part of an estate that needs to be settled between multiple family members. These kind of estate appraisals are also important to be accurate in case the I.R.S. wants a certain percentage of the Death Tax. Lastly, jewelry replacement appraisals are also performed to determine what a piece is worth in a RESALE situation or authentication process. When people buy jewelry or gems on the internet, many times they really don't know what it is worth. J. Thomson Custom Jewelers has 20 years internet experience with over 100 websites, therefore we have seen, and experienced many forms of jewelry fraud and misrepresentation on finished jewelry as well as loose gems and diamonds.
Let us assist you in an expert manner with any form of the appraisal process.
Jewelry Repair and Restyling
J. Thomson Custom Jewelers can repair almost anything in-house including custom jewelry. Many jobs like chain solders, simple settings can be done in
1 to 3 days. More complex jobs like platinum retipping, stone resetting, and multiple reprongings take 3 to 7 days. Our skilled artisans with 110 years
of combined experience can modify, and restyle many vintage pieces as well as create a more modern look. We examine carefully before you leave so that you
get an accurate receipt. We test your diamonds and mark on the receipt any "abnormalities" in the piece that you may be unaware of - then we give
you an insured value on the receipt in case of loss. In 20 years, we have never lost or destroyed by accident a client's or family ring or
other jewelry. You always get a quote before you leave our store. All workmanship is guaranteed for one year.

We offer the only free evaluation service on estate or used jewelry for possible resale. Bring your old jewelry from inheritance or divorce and we will give rough values for your use in estate selling or tax purposes. On pieces valued more than $500 we offer a minimum $20 appraisal fee on estates of 100 pieces or more. We do this in the store for walk-ins or via the Internet with emails digital images. After evaluation we can recommend several sale alternatives. We can buy outright for a fair price or E-Bay selling environment. If you sell it yourself on Craig's List, you can do the cash transaction in our VERY SAFE store fore FREE. Finally, if your item is sellable, we are one of only a few stores Oklahoma City that offers consignment with a dedicated Estate Case. Our fee is 20% of the sale price, and we make sure you know the minimum level that you could receive.
