Very professional and friendly. He made an appointment me with me and showed up on time. He brings his equipment with him so you don't have to send your jewelry out, so it doesn't leave your site. And when he's done, he sends you your electronic appraisal right then and there. And his prices are very fair! I would recommend him to anyone of my close friends and family!!!
I needed to get several pieces of jewelry appraised for insurance purposes and I found Gem Secrets. Michael (G.G.) is an independent jewelry appraiser and he mobile, so he will come to your home or workplace to appraise your items! It was great because he returned my phone call promptly and I was able to make an appointment for the next day for an appraisal at my home in San Marcos. He is local to Vista, but he will travel to the surrounding areas such as Orange County and Riverside County.
Michael is was easy to work with, really knowledgeable, and is personable. He provided me with tidbits about our jewelry and allowed me to view the diamond. He was done in about an hour and provided a pdf copy of the appraisal.
The appraisal was a quite a bit of $$, but he came out to the home to do it. Also, he is not associated with any store, so I know that my appraisal is going to be far less biased versus getting one in a store, so the cost was worth it.
Was his services worth the price I paid...YES! Would I use him again...YES! Would I recommend him...YES!
Michael was referred to me by Robbins Bros. in Glendale for a loose diamond appraisal. I gave him a call and he came by the next day in the AM. He was very knowledgeable and honest. He worked very efficiently and answered all my questions thoroughly.
Mike Rogers is the best jewelry appraiser we've ever dealt with. Extremely professional and pleasant. Very knowledgeable providing helpful tips for diamond care, etc. The best part is he comes to you - convenience at its finest. We definitely recommend using this guy!
Michael is awesome. We were referred to him by David & Sons for our engagement ring appraisal. We called him and he came to our house in La Jolla within a day. He was very thorough and told/showed us everything we needed to know about our ring. And his price was really great too, considering he comes to your house. Will definitely call him again when we need another piece of jewelry appraised!
Excellent Service. I was given Michael's name by a large engagement ring store in my area. His convenient service allowed me to continue working while getting an insurance appraisal done, which would have taken me much more time at a traditional shop than the 1-hour, come to you service he provided. His report was detailed and thorough. Pleasant person and a significant timesaver. I would recommend him to anyone.
Great Service. Very friendly, trustworthy, and professional. His convenient mobile service and 1-hour appraisal was preferred over leaving a ring for days to weeks at a jewelry store for appraisals. Extremely thorough in explaining and showing us all the characteristics of the diamond. Finalized the appraisal by providing us with a pdf copy of the comprehensive appraisal, including images. Answered all our questions regarding the ring and maintenance. It was reassuring to have the ring appraised where it never left our sight. Highly recommend Michael.
