If you inherited a piece of jewelry, were given a piece as a gift, or have just owned a piece for a while and are wondering about its worth, the My Jeweler app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives you a way to check the pricing of gold, diamonds, and silver. Additionally, you can connect to your RapNet account for pricing on any diamond items. The app is ideal for anyone who owns jewelry as well as dealers, buyers, collectors, retailers, and jewelers.
The My Jeweler app really works as a source for all things jewelry-related when it comes to pricing. You will be able to make use of the pricing calculators and even package more than one product together such as a diamond set in a platinum band. Your price calculations can be saved so you can go back and refer to them any time and you can even add pictures to the prices and then email the calculations. It’s a wonderful and quick way to get an idea of what a particular item may be worth. Obviously the prices aren't always exact but it gives users a very good idea of an approximate value.
The initial price of the appraisal app feels pretty steep and on top of that there are a couple of in-app purchases should you wish to unlock all the tools. The app has had plenty of updates and does manage to score quite high with users, getting four out of five stars. It seems like this is the kind of tool that may be best used by a professional or business owner rather than just someone who wants to know what their necklace is worth today.

Features and Tools
Taking a close look at the app's features you'll find this one offers IDEX diamond prices, you're able to set a discount rate, there are 30 different currencies to pick from and set as your own, and it is a universal app so you can use it on all of your devices. As mentioned you can save items in your own collection and add photos, plus you can add products into a piece such as gold, silver, and platinum. The user interface feels professional enough and is simple to use. The navigation bar along the bottom of the screen makes it easy to move through it. Again the information feels a little too advanced for just an average jewelry owner and it seems much better suited for professional purposes only.
