Ralph Miller Jewelers & Gallery is a century old, full service guild style manufacturer & regional service center offering:
At Ralph Miller Jewelers & Gallery (America's Best Jewelers)& Erie's People's Choice Jeweler), we have the most knowledgeable and experienced appraisers you can find in this region. We can appraise all kinds of jewelry, diamonds, gemstones, sterling flatware, watches, artifacts and jewelry antiques, and much more. If you haven't had your jewelry appraised in the past 5 years, we recommend (because of the tremendously fluctuation in the metals market), that you have it documented in written detail as soon as possible. Most evaluations/appraisals are done for the sole purpose and peace of mind to obtain insurance coverage in the case of loss, theft or damage. However, our evaluations and appraisals can be used for many different situations such as; trust and estate tax evaluation, estate & trust liquidation, casualty loss, dissolution of marriage (divorce), collateral, tax and barter purposes.

It is wonderful that you've taken the time and effort to get evaluation appraisals on all your jewelry but don't forget to take the final step for full peace of mind, that being purchasing actual jewelry insurance.

Our Ralph Miller Jewelers & Gallery “Full Service” for mechanical swiss movement watches consists of the disassembly and overhaul of the movement with an examination of all parts. We replace or have manufactured all damaged or worn parts and re-seal water-resistant and waterproof cases. For all cleaning and overhauling, each of its parts are placed in special chemical solutions that dissolve dirt, dust, and emulsions of the thick and heavy dried out oils. When the watch is reassembled, special oils are applied to re-lubricate all interior appropriate parts. We recommend that a general overhaul be performed every three to five years and that all water-resistant watches be tested once a year for case tightness and gasket seal life. In addition, bracelet watch bands are polished and thoroughly cleaned.
