"I needed an appraisal of my engagement ring for jewelry insurance and chose Chaya at Carolina Jewelry Appraisers based on her wonderful reviews. She cleaned my ring, explained each step of the appraisal, along with the tools that she was using, and had me out of there in 35 minutes! Chaya is fantastic to work with and you can’t go wrong with her appraisal services. I’ll definitely use her again!"

"Friendly service, large selection and great prices. What more can you ask for from a local jewelry store? My husband and I purchased a bunch of different jewelry pieces from here, including our wedding bands. We've always been satisfied and highly recommend Carolina Jewelry Appraisers to anyone looking for a trustworthy jeweler. "
