Rogers, in house gem lab, features the latest equipment resulting in the most accurate and reliable appraisal of your diamonds and precious gems. Our Graduate Gemologist, trained by the GIA, oversees every appraisal.

With the use of equipment and the knowledge of our Graduate Gemologist® we are able to identify and value almost any gemstone. Complete written appraisals are available. A real appraisal takes some time and effort and anyone doing one with only a quick look is only making a guess at best.

As your local jeweler since 1960, Rogers wants to advise
their customers and friends:

Be wary of outfits at hotels, home parties, or unscrupulous businesses
trying to buy your old gold and jewelry at bargain prices.

With gold at the $1600 per ounce level, be sure to demand the
right price for your merchandise.

We pay more.
Shop around and then see us.

Wherever you go, insist on full value.
