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.

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.

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. It’s a success story!”
