Looking for your personal jewelry consultant? Assess your needs. Do you want antique or estate jewelry? Are you in the market for an engagement ring? Would you like to design a ring? Do you have older jewelry that should be redesigned? Have you inherited jewelry that you need valued? Do you want to sell jewelry? Where to sell it, locally or in the international auction market? Do you need an insurance appraisal? Do you need an estate/probate appraisal for IRS purposes? Perhaps you and your family members don’t need a full appraisal, but simply a verbal valuation to help you more easily split the jewelry among yourselves. Maybe your pearls need to be restrung? Did you crush your ring and do you want to try to restore it?
All these questions and who can assist you? A. A. Benjamin Ltd. your personal jeweler since 1994 is the answer. We have been bringing a smile and a thank you from our many clients as we guide them through their morass of jewelry concerns. We have fixed or assisted all and more of the above queries. A.A. Benjamin was named the “best place to buy an engagement ring” by the Houston Press in 1997 and 2003. We were also named “best estate Jewelry in Houston” by HTexas Magazine in 2004. When we sell estate or antique, the jewelry is old and not a reproduction. We carefully search for special Victorian and other antique jewelry our clients demand. If you want something that is not old, we can design jewelry that is in the “antique or modern” style. The choice is always yours.
As your personal consultant with a GG (graduate gemologist degree from GIA) and an Accredited Member (AM) of the International Society of Appraisers (ISA), we bring a solid, knowledgeable approach to management and assessment of your jewelry collection. We don’t maintain a showroom full of inventory instead we have a private office to discuss your requirements. We bring you the choices you want.
