Kevin Carpenter G.G., C.I.A. Expert Jewelry Appraisers LLC

Graduate Gemologist (G.G.) and Certified Insurance Appraiser (C.I.A.) with over 40 Years of Jewelry Experience.

Appraising jewelry is a passion for Kevin.  His interest in gemology began at an early age having been inspired by his father, who is a geologist.  With over 40 years in the jewelry business,  Kevin gained his experience working as the manager for Vermont’s largest jewelry retailer and owned his own jewelry design business. He has consulted for a major jewelry industry liquidator, and has appraised fine jewelry for a large national jewelry appraisal firm.

Rounding out his jewelry knowledge Kevin has completed courses of study in diamond grading, gem identification and grading, jewelry valuation, and appraisal theory from the most prestigious schools in the industry.  Most recently,  the Jewelry Insurance Appraisal Institute has awarded Kevin the title of Certified Insurance Appraiser,  and he is a recommended appraiser for the Jewelry Insurance Brokerage of North America.
