While serving the community's Jewelry needs for 33 years, we have personalized the Insurance replacement & claims part of our business by traveling to the client's local destination to discuss the initial claim inquiry; additionally, we offer a more comfortable meeting place in our office by private appointment. We ensure the client is not exposed to the public unnecessarily.
We specialize in protecting your bottom line and your professional business persona by delivering expedient quality service efficiently, with trust and confidence.

Jewelry Replacement Valuations – we research each piece and give a valuation based on current market conditions making this process accurate. Michelle Crumback will provide like kind and quality replacements. Meaning the policyholder will receive the same or better-quality characteristics listed on the appraisal or receipt.
Our Policyholder care is exceptional as we walk them through our process and confirm the details of the lost/destroyed piece of jewelry, allowing us to put the policyholder at ease knowing they are in excellent hands and ensuring we are accurate in quoting the loss.
Custom Jewelry - We have it covered. If the policyholder's item was custom designed or is no longer available, Michelle Crumback offers a custom design process to re-create the piece. We will work closely with the policyholder, ask the pertinent questions, and reassure them that we will reproduce their item as accurately as possible.
Inspection Services - With our GIA Graduate Gemologist, our inspection services are proven to increase the accuracy of identifying each fine jewelry piece's problem. We will determine the cause of loss on a center stone and the accent stones, identifying if a stone fell out because it was a manufacturing defect, normal wear or if there was damage to the stone caused by trauma or a pre-existing flaw within the stone.
Matching Earring – We understand the sentimental value that jewelry has; thus, we have a program that will identify all of the remaining earring characteristics after the policyholder loses the other one. We will match the existing earring, giving the policyholder a part of their sentimental pair of earrings back as a matched set rather than buying a new pair of earrings.
Salvage Program – We research the current diamond, metal, and finished jewelry markets to find comparable items to each salvage item. This process provides an accurate payout for policyholder claims.
We will photograph salvage items and write out detailed information about the underwriter's damage and comparable items to have comparables.
