Fine Jewelry Appraisal, Evaluation, Consignment, Purchase, and Custom Design & Repair

I founded EMS Estates in 2015 to provide a knowledgeable and personal approach to appraising and selling fine jewelry. Jewelry can hold precious memories and sentimental value for us and it’s important that the appraiser evaluating your jewelry not only has the qualifications to appraise it but understands the history and context behind each piece.

Selling jewelry can be a very emotional decision. EMS Estates provides a private, judgement-free environment to have your jewelry appraised or evaluated to buy it directly or sell on consignment. At EMS Estates I will treat you and your fine jewelry with the respect and expertise that you deserve.


I will provide detailed measurements, values, certification, and professional photographs, for each piece of jewelry in your appraisal.

Happy Clients


“I met Elizabeth when the GIA recommended her. I needed someone to evaluate and sell a large collection of fine personal jewelry that my deceased wife loved. After meeting Elizabeth, I found her integrity and knowledge to be amazing. She is a professional jewelry appraiser who knows just about everything regarding the world of fine jewelry. Elizabeth is still selling off the extensive list for a very fair price.”

George Edwards

“I asked Elizabeth at EMS Estates to sell an antique brooch for me. Several other people said it was “un-sellable” as it wasn’t in fashion any longer.

Elizabeth found a buyer and did what others said was impossible – she sold it and got a decent price for it. Throughout the process, Elizabeth stayed in touch, letting me know what was going on. I highly recommend EMS Estates…”

Linda Cahan

“My elderly mother passed her jewelry on to me. I didn’t want to keep a lot of it and thought I could sell some and set up a fund for her. I had no idea how to start. I considered removing the stones and refining the gold for melt value, but that just felt wrong and some pieces wouldn’t be worth much.

Then I was fortunate to meet Elizabeth. She told me she could sell what I didn’t want to keep…”

My Story

I founded EMS Estates because I know how confusing the jewelry business can be. Years ago I needed to sell jewelry to pay tuition.  The idea made me nervous because the process seemed mysterious. I didn’t know what to expect.  I started this company to help guide others through appraising, selling, or consigning their jewelry.
