Appraisal and Pre & Post Sale Consultation Services

Kybele LLC is an appraisal and consulting company specializing in the evaluation of jewelry, gems, and minerals. We do not buy or sell. We focus on providing individual attention and independent opinion of value to our clients. For this reason, we work by appointment so that we can conduct the examination of your items while you wait and watch. We will test, weigh, measure, describe and photograph the appraised items, as well as note their general condition.

We can provide appraisal reports to help you for a variety of purposes including obtaining or renewing insurance, estate planning or distribution, divorce, donation, liquidation and resale, among other purposes. Our appraisals are performed in compliance with the general standards of the jewelry appraisal profession.

Our staff appreciates that jewelry often comprises some of the most valuable personal effects that our clients own. So, whether you have a single ring or a large collection, we would like to be your appraiser. Kybele LLC’s primary appraiser, Çiğdem Lüle PhD, FGA, GIA GG is a mineralogist and an award winning gemologist. Unlike many jewelry appraisers, Kybele LLC, has experience in the intricate area of evaluating fine minerals and mineral collections.

... and because Dr. Lule is a gemologist as well as a mineralogist, she is a natural fit for gem and mineral collection appraisals, and has been a pleasure to work.
