The Jewellery Judge Appraisal System was conceived and developed by Mr. Steven A. Knight GG, RMV, CJI-AAP. After gaining experience in both the retail and manufacturing of the jewellery business, Steven set to work to improve the jewellery appraisal methods. Specifically, he sought ways to improve the accuracy and consistency of appraisals and to make it easier for new appraisers to price gemstones accurately and consistently, resulting in the creation of The Jewellery Judge Appraisal Program and System.
The Jewellery Judge Appraisal System has been designed to accommodate both jewellers and their customers. Each appraisal is computer assisted so that its accuracy is ensured. The Jewellery Judge's computer database is supported by more than a million diamond and coloured stone prices.
The Jewellery Judge Appraisal Program evolved through a considerable development process. Seven years were spent turning the concept into a workable system ready to be tested. Another three years were spent accumulating market research data. During this time, the Program was refined and more consumer products developed. The Jewellery Judge Appraisal Program has proven to be highly beneficial to both the appraiser and the consumer.
The Jewellery Judge was first trademarked in Canada , 1985. It is the accumulation of considerable experience gained by Steven A. Knight in the Retail appraisal business. This unique jewellery appraisal software design and concept of The Jewellery Judge are protected by the Supreme court of Canada.
