In addition to the tremendous responsibility that comes with appraising and acquiring estate jewelry, it must be treated with an equal amount of sensitivity. This paradigm was vetted in Jeff Kellmer, aged 12, as he cleaned glass cases in his grandpop’s Philadelphia store.
“Family jewelry and artifacts have both an intrinsic and monetary value,” said Jeff. “For this reason my grandfather, without compromise, always made certain the customer came first. Like him, I sit and listen to everyone’s motivation behind coming in and present the best options for maximizing the value of their personal treasures.”
As a graduate gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Jeff’s evaluations are accepted by all insurance companies. People from as far as Washington, D.C., and Boston meet with Jeff to take part in his multi-step process and receive the maximum value for their property.
