I'm Mitchell Dustin. My wife and I started Northern Appraisal Services in 2003. I have 30+ years of experience in gemology, antique jewelry, management, sales, and appraising. I was employed as a jewelry retail store manager, buyer, and broker.
I received my Graduate Gemologist diploma from the Gemological Institute of America and completed and passed my Certified Gemologist Appraiser exam and the Advanced Professional Property Appraisal exam given by the American Gem Society. I am a member of the American Gem Society and the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers. I acquired my Certified Member status from NAJA in February 2009.
Please call us at 614-898-7927 for an appointment. We appraise everything in front of you while you wait. You don’t have to worry about your jewelry. Multiple pieces can be dropped off in the morning and picked up at a scheduled time that day if you don’t want to stay. Nothing is kept overnight. What jeweler or appraiser would do the same?
I am Gina Dustin. I received my Graduate Gemologist diploma May 2006 and GIA Pearls Graduate diploma in the fall of 2006. I have been working along side Mitch for the past six years and have been appraising on my own since the beginning of 2007. In Nov 2009 I became a Certified Gemologist Appraiser through the American Gem Society.
