Online Gemstone Appraisal
Gemval is World's first online gemstone valuation resource for industry professionals. Our statistical database is updated every month and contains more than 70000 records from over 140 traders. To ensure our valuations remain unbiased, we don't buy or sell gems, nor are we affiliated with any jewelry merchants. Gemval has been used as an online pricing reference by professional web traders, jewelers and collectors since 2004.
Gemval provides you with a simple online tool for fast and accurate gemstone appraisal. Most natural colored gemstones can be valued using our interactive model. To arrive at the value, the sophisticated statistical model takes into account the many factors impacting a gem's value, such as its variety, weight in carats, color, color intensity and clarity amongst other characteristics. The value calculated in the model reflects current market prices.
