Rebecca - Seattle, WA

Seleena is wonderful! I was oddly nervous about getting my engagement ring appraised and just dragged my feet so bad on scheduling an appointment.

Seleena made the experience easy, she talked me through everything she was doing and went over the appraisal explaining everything in full detail.  Highly recommend!

Jeri - Kirkland, WA

Saleena is so great at what she does. Very passionate at making sure you get the best value with your purchase and or appraisal. I am fortunate enough to be in a business networking group with her so I get to hear all the testimonials she gets from the referrals given to her. She is a great resource for us.

Brittany - Bellingham, WA

Excellent experience. I found Saleena with an A+ score on the better business bureau website. When I called her, she returned my call within one business day and was flexible in accommodating my schedule. My husband and I traveled from Bellingham and the trip was well worth it! Saleena is personable and professional. We will definitely be returning to her for our future appraisal/jewelry needs.
