Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Anna Miller, in her recently updated version (9-99) of "The Illustrated Guide to Jewelry Appraising", gives a novice or a professional some expert information in this edition. The concepts and principles section alone is worth the price of the book, but her book also covers everthing from making the "correct identification" to tips on the appraisal document itself. Also included is supplemental info. on antique jewelry, estimating values and appraisal narrative, plus weight estimation formulas for unusual diamond cuts. I would suggest her book to anyone with an interest in appraising or anyone who has the need to understand the process of jewelry evaluation.

More material was offered than I had expected. This reads very much like a text book full of illustrations and very easy to understand.

HASH(0x9f30b72c) out of 5 stars A narrative jewelry description, a methodology for research, and much more Sept. 6 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Maybe you think the fine art of jewelry appraising is one of determining value alone - but there's so much more to the skill, as Registered Master Valuer and jewelry historian Anna Miller reveals in Illustrated Guide To Jewelry Appraising 3rd Edition: Antique, Period & Modern. Her updated, expanded new third edition combines case studies and typical valuation challenges with key documents to aid in the pricing process, instructions on how to do a narrative jewelry description, a methodology for research, and much more. Loaded with practical, technical data, Illustrated Guide To Jewelry Appraising should not be missed by any serious jewelry collector.

HASH(0x9f30bee8) out of 5 stars good book Feb. 1 2009
By momofthree - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has some valuable information and it is worth reading if you are a novice and you purchase a lot of jewelry for pleasure and business.
However, I noticed that she tells one story about cameo values in this book and tells the complete opposite in her cameo third edition book. That was a "red flag" warning in my opinion.

HASH(0x9f8a9bf4) out of 5 stars Great for Appraising Jewelry Feb. 1 2011
By R. Shah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Thoroughly explains how to appraise jewelry, stones, etc but tends to assume the reader has a foundation from which the author then adds to. If you're a novice this book will be a little difficult to comprehend, otherwise it's a great read.
HASH(0x9f813b4c) out of 5 stars This is the companion volume to Gems and Jewelry Appraising May 17 2014
By Karen Overturf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Purchased as a companion volume for my own reference in the future. It appears to be very thorough and knowledgeable.
