I inherited my Moms diamond wedding and engagement ring recently and wanted it appraised for insurance purposes. I googled "jewelry appraisers" in San Ramon, because I try to patronize local business owners. I found B. Allan Jewelers, read the great Yelp reviews, and called and spoke to the owner- Brett. After confirming he could perform the appraisal while I waited, he told me to come in the next morning. Brett was very personable, a family man, by all the photos he displayed in his office, (which I loved) but very knowledgeable about jewelry. We chatted while he did the appraisal. After he wrote down all the ring details, he told me he would have the appraisal back to me in a couple days. So you can imagine my surprise when Brett contacted me the next day and told me my appraisal was ready. He definitely went way beyond my expectations.
If anyone I know wants to purchase quality diamond rings, need jewelry repair, or just an appraisal like I did, I will undoubtedly be referring them to B. ALLAN JEWELERS, or more specifically BRETT.
Thank you Brett
