Gemological Services

Jewelry has a story to tell.

Welcome!

Kristin Rognrud-Olson (Graduate Gemologist, GIA Certified Gemologist, AGS) started Gemological Services in 1991 with a mission to help clients discover more about their treasured pieces of jewelry. Kristin has 40 years experience in the jewelry industry as a bench jeweler, diamond buyer and appraiser. Personable and engaging, Kristin loves to hear clients’ stories, whether their piece is a new purchase or a family heirloom. As the only independent appraiser within 30 miles of Wayzata, MN, Kristin’s appraisals are sought out by private individuals and insurance companies for her trusted and unbiased expertise. Kristin is happy to walk her clients through the process with her undivided attention, eye for detail, and extensive knowledge.

Gemological Services provides appraisals for insurance, estate, resale, and IRS purposes. Most assessments are performed in person, where jewelry doesn’t leave the owner’s sight; owners can also ask questions during this time. Valuations are not immediately given. Instead, after measuring, reviewing for grading and color, and taking photos of the piece, Kristin researches the current market and mails her appraisal within 48 hours.

What our clients have to say

I just had a great experience with Kristin. She is so lovely, but also knowledgeable and professional. She was able to fit me in on the same day, which already made my day! She is honest, very friendly, and more than trustworthy. She does all the evaluation in front of you, then she sends the paperwork (because I needed an appraisal for my engagement ring and wedding bands) in about 48 hours. You can tell that she is very experienced, because the evaluation is complete, and fast. Please, do not let the lack of reviews turn her and her services away from you. If anything, at least, schedule an appointment with her. She will not disappoint! Thank you so much, Kristin!
