Appraising is our business!

Jewelry is our passion…

Professional Service since 1953

Ben Gordon DOES NOT BUY or SELL Jewelry! To avoid conflicts of interest, he advises clients on the best markets of trusted professionals, auction galleries or retailers to obtain the best exposure to meet your needs. A Jewelry Judge Appraisal or Consultation equips you with information to make the right decisions to achieve your wants and needs.

We thank Fortuna Auctions, New York, for permission to link to some of the fine jewelry sold by our clients.
