  • A pleasure to meet with you on Monday. Your advise & expertise is invaluable, a true professional & ethical.  J.C.
  • Thank you for your prompt and informative report. If anyone were to inquire I would recommend you highly. R.F.
  • It was good to see you again and show you my grandmother's jewelry. As usual, you gave me a great deal of good advise and I really appreciate your help to decide how to sell the collection.   PS: I will be sure to refer any friends who need appraisals.   J.
  • My sisters adn I thank you for the helpful information you shared with us Thursday, and the detailed appraisal I received in the mail today.  P.C.
  • Thank you for the time you spent with me answering all my questions> I was fascinated by your insight about my diamonds. I so enjoyed our conversation and the time we spent together.  M.B.K
  • What a professional! Mrs. Panitch did a thoroughly awesome job in her appraisal of my items at a reasonable cost.  Her cost was significantly lower than any local jewelry stores and you do not have to leave your precious jewelry.  Do not sell any of your valuable jewelry without seeing Mrs. Panitch first. I would highly recommend her to anyone!   A.C.      
  •  We learned so much about jewelry in a short period of time.  We had several pieces that we were considering passing on to our children, selling or donating.  We have a better idea of what we want to do.  Reasonable prices.       P. & L. K.         
  • "I didn't realize it was so involved!   I thought she would just look at it and say it was worth X dollars."     A.R.
  • "I was told that the closer the appraiser's grade was to the certificate grade, the better they were.  Joyce got all three of my diamond grades spot-on."   Michael
  • "I liked being able to sit there while the work was being done.  The jewelers that I had called wanted me to leave my diamond ring for 7-10 days."     Ann
