Jewelry Testing

We are home to certified experts on gemology. Our team consists of GIA graduates that went through comprehensive training courses and classes that provide them with outstanding knowledge on precious stones and gems. These courses include the following:

  • Diamond Essentials
  • Diamonds & Diamond Grading
  • Colored Stone Essentials
  • Colored Stones
  • Gem Identification

They also had firsthand experience in dealing with different machines that are involved in the industry of gemology. These were done during lab classes listed below:

  • Diamond Grading Lab
  • Colored Stone Grading Lab
  • Gem Identification Lab

The time and effort spent on understanding the fundamentals and certain areas of gemology only proves how dedicated Nevada Coin Mart is in terms of providing accurate evaluations on items being sold to the company. And, since the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is the world’s foremost authority in Gemology & Diamond Grading, it is safe to say that our experts really know what they are talking about.

Every time a customer brings in and attempts to sell a piece of jewelry at Nevada Coin Mart, our experts will first have to closely inspect the item. When it comes to precious stones, we pay extra attention to the following characteristics during an evaluation and grading:

  • Clarity
  • Cut
  • Color
  • Carat Weight
  • Brilliance

Upon receiving, our experts will immediately initiate the evaluation process (with your permission, of course). This process is done up-front – a practice we do in the name of honesty of convenience. This way, you can keep an eye on your items and be sure that no suspicious item switching takes place. Doing so is our way of helping customers stay comfortable and at ease, as well as avoid passing items through unnecessary steps that do nothing more than delay the process, which can keep us from granting instant cash to sellers.

If you have pieces of jewelry that are just lying around but you think might be worth some cash, now might be a good time to get them out of your hands. And, while you’re at it, choose to sell them at Nevada Coin Mart instead, so you can still benefit from your jewelry’s value even after you get rid of them.
