About A+ Associates

Our Ethics:

First and foremost,we believe in being ethical at A+ Associates. We follow a code of ethics set forth by the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA). This code of ethics is a specific set of professional behaviors and values we abide by, including confidentiality, accuracy, privacy and integrity. The NAJA is the only appraisal organization devoted strictly to jewelry appraisers.

Our Education:

Continuing education is essential to providing accurate appraisals for our clients. We maintain updated continuing gemological and appraisal science education annually by attending industry conferences and shows .

Our Expertise:

In addition to being an expert in diamond analysis, we have attended advanced gemological workshops pertaining to rubies and sapphires with expert gemologist's from renowned gemological laboratories. See our article in Saratoga Today (PDF).

Our Instruments:

Along with a fully equipped laboratory for gemological testing and evaluation, A+ Associates is one of the few labs in the country that can display the images we see under our microscope on a monitor for you to see.

Our Service:

Because we feel it is important for you to learn and understand how the evaluation process works, we encourage you stay and watch and learn about your jewelry items as they are appraised.
