*This service is NOT a formal written appraisal, but is an estimate of value based on 25 years of experience and continuing education through visiting other dealers and their shops, Indian jewelry shows, as well as local and national Indian Markets. We also utilize paid subscription internet websites for the latest information.

Comprehensive written appraisals are also available for insurance coverage or any other reason,  as we are appraisers who are qualified and experienced at writing professional appraisal reports. Contact us for additional information (520) 326-3070 or visit American Heirloom

  • We have created turquoise jewelry ourselves!  We have been guests at the Royston mining district and personally mined turquoise. We have also been guests of Freeport McMoran at the Bisbee turquoise tailing piles.  We cut turquoise from the rough stone, shape turquoise for jewelry, and silversmith the finished product.
  • Our 25 years of experience of buying, selling, and evaluating turquoise jewelry is our foundation for your accurate verbal approximation of value.
  • We regularly attend Native American Indian jewelry shows including the Santa Fe Indian Market each August, Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, and other local and regional Native American Indian jewelry Shows.
  • We regularly perform approximations of value, either as a walk-in service or internet e-mail correspondence.

All the best,

Thanks Dwight,

that is good news and as always you are great at both providing little tutoring and presenting a simple evaluation in a way that makes sense and is useful.
