Option 1

Option 2

  • Call a bank to make an appointment for opening a safe deposit box
  • Ask two officials from Internal Revenue Service to witness and pay for their services

The choice between the two above-mentioned options is at your complete discretion. If you choose the first option, you should keep in mind that the notary services are quite expensive. If you want to minimize the costs we suggest you the second option

GIA, the Gemological Institute of America is the world’s foremost authority in Gemology. The Gemological Institute of America sets the standards on the Gemology field all over the world. GIA college offers the best Diamond and Gemstone education in the world.
When entrusting a GIA graduated, you can be absolutely sure you have a person by your side who will tell a Burma Ruby from a Ruby from Thailand, and who will estimate in thousands a real Pigeon’s Blood Ruby, that is still often replaced by a much cheaper Ceylon Ruby.

Why should you choose a GIA graduate?

You need a worthy expert to determine a value of any type of a Diamond.
The slightest changes in the parameters can significantly affect the price of Diamonds and Gems. When entrusting a GIA graduate, you will get a real gold and silver estimate. These two branches of Jewelry industry are very complicated and crazy variegated.

You’re on the wrong career path if you are not going to dedicate your entire life to studying and learning. There are so many different types of gold and silver, and there can be a big difference even between two coins. Some coins of the pound sterling look just the same at a glance, but when you analyze them carefully, you will discover they are of extreme value. Alloys are used only in technology.

If there are some pieces of Victorian or Edwardian jewelry in your safe deposit box, a professional expert, who is by your side, will immediately recognize them, as he or she will recognize all worthy Jewels that could be transferred directly from your safe box to one of the world famous auctions.

Jewels deserve a great attention

No jokes, it’s a serious business.
When you choose an expert to open your safe security box, you should remember that jewels could come in a great variety of shapes and styles to attempt to enumerate, and any one could cost a lot of money. For instance, it is easy to say: necklace. But a close-fitting necklace worn around neck and measuring from 33 to 38 cm, is called choker. The other necklaces, chains or pearl strands have different names according to their length:

Short Standard – 40 cm
Long Standard – 45-50 cm
Matineè – 60 cm
Opera – 76 cm
Opera Long or Rope – 90 -100 cm

These are only the necklaces names. Just imagine how many parameters you need to consider in order to determine a value of gold, gems, diamonds, silver and platinum.
