A couple of weeks ago, well respected Belgian gemologist Roger Dedeyne contacted our office and asked if we could make some inquiries regarding a group of jewelry appraisals that were circulating in various gem dealing circles. At issue was the fact that the appraisals, while accompanied by GIA Identification Reports, appeared to be extremely high in value. High enough that they constituted perhaps the highest value on an appraisal that most had seen.
Upon receiving these appraisals I searched the internet and found the appraiser's website, contact information and location in Florida. We will withhold his name as he is operating under a company name that is very similar, and could be confused with a major, well-known appraisal company. We do not want to cause issues for the established appraisal company so we will refer to this appraiser as: "Appraiser X".
