Jewelry Appraisals

At Hoover’s, we offer full appraisal services. Appraisals are a formal insurance replacement document. You will need this in order to replace an item if lost or stolen. We will provide you with a full appraisal with any new engagement purchase at no charge and also cover the insurance for the first year!

Didn’t buy your item here? No problem, we have TWO Graduate Gemologists on staff that are happy to do appraisal work for you at any time. Update appraisals are recommended every 5 years as values are consistently changing within the Jewelry Industry.

We do not remove any stones during the appraisal process, and we clean and check every item before we do the assessment! Stop in or call for more information today.

Watch Repairs

At Hoover’s, the staff can do just about any watch repair from changing a battery to replacing the movement. We have certified repair technicians that are proud of the work they provide. We would love to see you, so please come in and let us know what we can do for you!

Single time battery replacement $10.00 (per battery)

Lifetime battery replacement $25.00 (per battery)

Please stop in for an estimate on all other repairs.

We Buy Gold and Diamonds

Do you have any old pieces of jewelry lying around the house that you’re looking to trade in for cold card cash? Have you your eye on that sparkly new diamond necklace. Do you want to trade your unwanted pieces in toward it? Either way, we’ve got you covered!

Here at Hoover’s, we buy unwanted Sterling Silver (.925), 10K, 14K, 18K, 22K, 24K Gold, and Platinum items from you at the value that precious metal is currently priced at. This, is also known as scrap value. As an independent retail jeweler, we are unable to buy and resell used items.

As a precaution, not everything that is stamped with a particular stamping means that’s what it is, so we will happily test the precious metal content in any given piece at no charge to you. Stop in at any time for more details.


Engraving is a special way to personalize a gift item or to commemorate a particular day or event that means something to you! Our trained professionals are happy to take a look at any item and give you a quote on our engraving services.  We do all engravings right here in the store. You can choose from a variety of fonts, logos and images. Hoover’s will personalize that special gift item, or even the inside of a ring!
