What is a Gemologist?

A Gemologist is a certified professional who identifies, evaluates, and appraises gemstones. Mayflower Estate Buyers and Consultants employs Gemological Institute of America (GIA) Gemologists to perform appraisals either in your office or your client’s home. Protecting our customers and their jewelry is important to us, which is why we recommend you get your jewelry appraised regularly.
