I have a pearl necklace and some loose pearls from the Gulf of Tonkin.
I wanted to have them appraised since there is a possibility I may be getting more for the purpose of selling. I am located in the Bay Area and have gotten two estimates for appraisal costs-one for $125/hour, and the other for $150/hour.
I thought I read here on the forum that appraisals can run as low as $35/hour. Does anyone know of any reputable appraisal services in the Bay Area that charge this price or at least closer to that price?
