by Nervis » Nov 3, 2008 I recently had a diamond appraised by Patrick Davis at GemSecure Jewelry Appraisal and was more than satisfied with the experience. Patrick is very knowledgeable, patient, and professional, and was willing to humor me as I tested his claim of there being "no stupid questions." In addition to a very thorough analysis of the diamond that included all of the scopes, machines, and gem-based gadgetry one would imagine existing only in a secret lab, Patrick was also very candid and informative with respect to diamond markets (both B&M and online) and the overall insurance process. Patrick was the perfect appraiser for a confused, new diamond owner like me, and offered both a detailed examination as well as confidence in my new stone. I look forward to returning to Patrick once the diamond is set for another quality appraisal of the ring, as well as for any future jewelry purchases. It is only with slight trepidation that I say, "Rock on, Patrick."
