We had over 100 items of jewelry in my parent?s estate that we needed to sell and split the value among the executors. So we did tons of research to determine who to see, and one...

Editorial review from Citysearch 5/8/2014

David was very professional and honest about what he was appraising and offered a very fair price. \r \r He explained in detail what he saw and was very thorough. I would recommend David's services for your jewelry needs. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/18/2014

I visited four jewelry buyers and no one even comes close to David. Honest, Direct, and Candid are just some of the descriptions that come to mind. Non one else I saw was anywhere in the same planet with his knowledge. What is even more impressive is his stark direct honesty. David tells it like it is, and he backs it up with un-questioning hard facts by producing a combination of book and on-line references for each point he makes. Every bone in your body tells you that you are in the presence of goodness and bordering of gifted knowledge of his subject. No wonder David has earned the respect of so many other experts and world famous jewelers in his field. Make no mistake, this is the place and this is the man to see if you are selling jewelry. Oh, and he was the highest bidder by more than 20%. What more can you ask for? more

Professional, honest and sincere. Sold an old engagement ring to him. I recommend him highly! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/1/2013

David really helped us understand all the tons of jewelry we had inherited from our parents. He gave us wonderful advice during a difficult time for me and my family. It was clear to all of us that David was not advising us for personal gain. We were recommended to David by our estate attorney who told us that he had known David for over 20 years, and that every client he has referred to David has always given him glowing feedback about his services. I wish all our experiences were as good as this one. Doing business with David was the best experience we could have possibly imagined. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/26/2013

Definitely the best out there as we tried a few places and this guy shows you everything about your jewelry so you know exactly what you have and how much it’s really worth. Got the best price from him as well. Very personable and genuinely friendly. I liked him as a person far better than anywhere else I visited. Very very recommended. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/18/2012

Truly outstanding service. Liked the fact that our jewelry never left our sight, we were explained in detail the quality and value of our jewelry, and we were paid more than we were offered in other places. A nice gentleman runs this establishment. Very high tech, professional environment which is in stark contrast to everywhere else we went. He lives up to his excellent reputation on line. more

Recommended Expert 4/30/2012

We had over 100 items of jewelry in my parent?s estate that we needed to sell and split the value among the executors. So we did tons of research to determine who to see, and one of the people we chose was David. David turned out to be better than expected. He walked us through the entire estate giving detailed explanations on value, provenance, and condition of each piece in the estate. David was unaware that we had already been somewhere else and an auction company. Not only was David?s prices slightly better than the other dealer we visited, but David?s understanding and careful explanations really helped us make important decisions about what to sell. It also surprised us to hear David advise us not to sell certain pieces as this made it clear to us that he wasn?t just advising us for personal gain. David?s values coincided perfectly with what the auction company stated that we would get for the important pieces, and this was a major advantage of selling these items directly to David. We didn?t have to wait for an auction, and we also didn?t have to worry about getting top dollar if the auction didn?t go well. Once again David had no knowledge of the values we had been given at the auction house. David was by far the most knowledgeable expert we spoke with, and his discussions were so detailed that make it much easier to make decisions. We found David intelligent, personable and above all directly honest. In our experience David is without peer, and you can do no better than seeking out his expert advice when thinking of selling jewelry. more

Honest & Fair 4/27/2012

I have been to a few diamond buyers trying to sell my ring and this place rocks! No one compares to this place. Professional, clean office filled with advanced equipment, pays the best price, friendly, I could go on and on. I wish I had seen these people first and not wasted so much time with places that just wanted to steal my ring from me. Five stars all the way. more

Super service and super accurate! 1/22/2012

After visiting four other places to sell my diamond engagement ring David was the only one that got the weight and quality of my diamond correct! Most importantly he offered me the most so I sold it to him on the spot. The whole process was quick and painless. This is the ONLY place I would recommend if you want to sell your jewelry. more

Excellent Service! 10/26/2011

I received excellent service from this place in the process of selling my aunt more

David exceeded my expectations! 7/30/2011

David exceeded my expectations! Like many people I chose to see David out of tons of others I found on the internet because of his fantastic reviews. I even drove over 300 miles to see him because I was so afraid of the jewelers in my local area. I can tell you that everything they say about him is absolutely true. David is the nicest person, and man does he know what he is doing. This guy is sharp! By the time I left his office he had explained everything so well I thought I could be a gemologist, just kidding. But seriously, he does a fantastic job of making sure you understand what you are doing and how he arrives at the values. No one in his industry is even close to this guy. And funny, he can be hilarious. Check him out, you will not be disappointed. more

Professional, pays high, and kind 7/16/2011

Sold my diamond engagement to David for the best price I could find. He was informative and kind. Process was painless and quick. Much more professional than others I visited. Recommended. more


Top notch jewelry buyer 7/6/2011

I have visited with David three different times selling him jewelry on all three occasions. David has been a gentleman and a great teacher each time I have seen him, and as always very fair in his payments for the jewelry. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to sell their jewelry. more

Best Jewelry Buyer I Found 7/3/2011

I went to David to sell my old diamond engagement ring from my divorce, and he paid me $1100 more than the other places I saw. What was even better was that I had told him how much I had been offered by other jewelry buyers and yet David still paid me $1100 more. David could have just as easily offered me $100 more than his competition and I would have sold it to him, but instead he was honest enough to show me why it was worth more than that. This is a pretty honest guy and he really does care about doing the right thing. Hopefully I will never be in the position of having to sell another engagement ring, but if I do, I will go nowhere else but here. Very highly recommended!!! more

Honest and Sincere with Incredible Knowledge 6/19/2011

I had a truly wonderful experience selling my jewelry to Mr. Boggess. David was the only place that gave me a feeling of confidence, I knew after spending just a few minutes with him that he is a completely honest person. His knowledge of his work is quite incredible and his education helped me make my decision to sell much easier. I simply cannot image a better place to sell my jewelry than this. If you?re thinking of selling your jewelry, do yourself a favor see David, you?ll be glad you did. more

He's great 6/17/2011

I went there today and met with David. I learned a great deal just from being in his office. He's very professional and trustworthy for sure. I'm happy with my decision to sell him my jewlery. And for the most part, yes I would reccommend him to anyone. more

Excellent jewelry buying service 6/9/2011

Got the best price from here when I sold my old diamond wedding rings. Very informative process and very sincere people. Will come back for sure if I ever have any other jewelry to sell. more

Honest and Fair Jewelry Buyer 6/6/2011

David purchased my diamond engagement ring for a very fair price. I had tried to sell it elwhere but was unable to get anywhere near as much. David also helped me understand why the selling price was what it was which was very helpful. I found him honest and fair in my dealing with him, and therefore recommend him to anyone else looking to sell their jewelry. more

David Boggess is the best jewelry appraiser in the business! 6/2/2011

This review is my formal apology to David for ever doubting his skill. A couple weeks ago I went to David to get my 3 carat diamond ring appraised for insurance. David graded my diamond differently from what the two previous appraisers had graded it at ten years ago. I questioned David about the difference, so David then showed me in his microscope the flaws in my diamond along with various photographs from books illustrating what each grade looked like in a microscope. Clearly what David was showing me looked like he was right, but since two other appraisers had not agreed with David I was still skeptical. After I left David?s office I went to another jewelry appraiser and that one agreed with the first two appraisers. Now I had three appraisers saying the diamond was different from David had said. I decided to go the Gemological Institute of America, the ?GIA? in Carlsbad, California as I had read on line that the GIA was the best diamond grading lab in the world and the place people can go to get the final word on diamond quality analysis. Well, David was absolutely right! The GIA graded my diamond exactly as David had graded it. Unbelievable, all three of the other appraisers were wrong and David was the only one that got it right. No wonder he has all the great reviews and such big companies as clients, he really is the best. David, I am so sorry to ever have questioned your ability. Please accept this review as my public apology. I will forever refer anyone I know to you and sing your praises every chance I get!!! Also hug that new grandson of yours for me, he is sooo cute! Thanks Again, Jeanie. more
