IfOnly would like to introduce you to the jewelers and gemologists at 66Mint, who are experts at appraising diamonds and precious stones. You and your group will be escorted into San Francisco’s exclusive private-estate jewelry boutique, 66Mint. Backed by 100 years of tradition and four generations of family-owned business, 66Mint will have hundreds of shiny and glistening things on full display for you to shop and appraise alongside a team of jewelers and gemologists who graduated from Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
Learn the ins and outs of purchasing estate jewelry such as the 4 C's of diamonds (color, cut, clarity, and carat weight) and what to look for in different types of colored stones. Then, it’s time to turn your newly-trained eye on your own items. If you have jewelry you would like appraised, the expert team at 66Mint will help you evaluate it on the spot.
