When it comes to the universe of appraising fine jewelry and precious stones, trust and expertise form the cornerstone. At Stewart Kuper Jewelers in Tucson, AZ, we don’t just offer jewels; we offer a legacy built on years of experience and an understanding of the nuanced world of high-value materials.

The Art of Selecting Fine Jewelry


At Stewart Kuper Jewelers, the allure of gold never wanes. We specialize in 14 and 18-karat gold items, as these alloys are not just beautiful but also robust enough to stand the test of time. The color variation between these karats, from the rich yellows to the paler hues, offers a range to suit every taste and occasion. When it comes time to select a gold piece of your own, work with Stewart Kuper to find the one that fits your needs and desires.


Each diamond has its unique set of criteria for quality, commonly known as the Four C’s for diamonds: Carat weight, Cut, Clarity, and Color. We pay acute attention to these details, ensuring that each stone’s brilliance, fire, and overall allure meet our stringent standards.

Bullion and Coins

Our services also extend to the sophisticated world of bullion and collectible coins. Our decades of experience equip us to appraise gold coins, both domestic and international, with impeccable accuracy. We consider various elements such as historical value, mint date, and condition, along with weight and purity.

Caring For Your Fine Jewelry

When it comes to unlocking the true value of your fine jewelry, it’s not so much about unlocking hidden value as it is caring for and safeguarding the existing value.  Caring for your jewelry involves practices that help maintain its luster, prevent damage, and ensure that your treasured pieces stay in pristine condition and keep their value.  Here are some essential tips to consider:

Proper Storage: Store your jewelry in a safe and dry place. To prevent scratching and tangling, use individual jewelry pouches, boxes, or compartments. Consider investing in jewelry organizers to keep pieces separate to prevent any scratches and easily accessible.

Avoid Exposure to Chemicals: Keep your jewelry away from harsh chemicals, such as household cleaning agents, perfumes, cosmetics, and hairspray. These substances can tarnish metals and damage gemstones. Only wear your jewelry after you’ve applied makeup and fragrances.
Mind the Environment: Jewelry can be sensitive to temperature and humidity changes. Extreme heat or cold may cause expansion and contraction of materials, potentially leading to damage. Store your jewelry away from direct sunlight and extreme temperature variations.

Be Cautious with Activities: Remove your jewelry when engaging in activities that may subject it to potential damage. For example, take off your rings during strenuous physical activities, as they can be bent or scratched. Avoid wearing jewelry when swimming in chlorinated pools or engaging in water sports.

Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect your jewelry for loose stones, worn prongs, or signs of damage. Catching issues early can prevent further damage or the loss of gemstones. If you notice any problems, take your jewelry in for repairs.

Proper Handling: When putting on or removing your jewelry, be gentle. Avoid pulling or tugging on delicate chains, and always hold jewelry items by their sturdiest parts to prevent unnecessary stress on fragile components.

Secure Clasps and Closures: Ensure clasps, hooks, and closures are properly secured to prevent accidental loss. Check the fastenings regularly, especially in the case of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

By following these care guidelines, you can ensure that your jewelry maintains its aesthetic appeal and holds value for years to come. Proper storage, avoiding exposure to harmful substances, and being mindful of activities are all key components of preserving your jewelry.
