About Me

Mark Gamel

I am Mark Gamel, GG CSM, and you can put your trust in my services. I can provide the best service and exceptional quality that you expect. I have been in the business for nearly 26 years. I am a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of American and a Certified Member of the  National  Association of Jewelry Appraisers. I studied under another appraiser  for 3 years then took over his position at a large jewelry repair shop  when he retired. I have been appraising jewelry for the over 15 years  and average around 120 appraisals per month all ranging  from individual  pieces to whole estates. The main part of my appraising  business is Retail Replacement Appraisal, but I also do a large amount of Estate  Appraising.
