“SHERWOODS is more than a business. It is a global community of unique individuals establishing business relationships profitable for all involved while simultaneously advancing international peace. Diamonds they trade in for pleasure, investment and asset protection, but relationships are the core of their business.”
So, if you ask Richard if he is in the diamond business, you’re likely to hear him say:
“No, I’m in the peace business. I make friends for a living. Diamonds I do for fun.”
A “personal jeweler” salon, SHERWOODS Gemstone Jewelry of Excellence caters to the customer who desires a more personal touch than they find in the traditional retail atmosphere. SHERWOODS Gemstone Jewelry of Excellence satisfies that desire with expert concierge-type personal service performed on an “appointment recommended” basis.
Established in January of 1987, Sarasota Gemological Laboratory is directed by Richard Sherwood. Richard is a nationally and internationally recognized expert, with extensive experience in the gemstone and jewelry industry since 1980, along with a Graduate Gemologist diploma awarded by the Gemological Institute of America in 1985.
Sarasota Gemological Laboratory is a high profile laboratory that appraises fine diamonds and colored stones, as well as fine gemstone jewelry of all periods. An uncommon state-of-the-art laboratory, SGL services local, national & international clientele using advanced instrumentation such as the powerful SAS-2000 spectrophotometer, the latest high resolution OGI NovaScope measuring instrumentation, the cutting edge Octonus DiamCalc software developed by scientists of Moscow University, and optical analysis tools such as Hearts & Arrows viewers & the IdealScope.
At SHERWOODS, they are also interested in bidding on your jewelry estate. They are knowledgeable gemologists with significant funding, and are usually in the top levels of bidding.
While their favorites are the larger estates with significant diamonds or gemstones, no estate is too small for their attention.
Please consider them when you have need of an estate jewelry buyer.
“I always wanted to invest in diamonds, but not knowing anyone in the industry I didn’t have a faintest idea how to go about it. I was so glad a friend recommended Sherwoods. Their friendly and knowledgeable gemologists took care of my dilemma by providing expert concierge-type service from beginning to end. They listened carefully, and then matched my investment needs with a world-class diamond, offering to me at trade level pricing (I checked), and then concluded the transaction on a favorable tax basis using one of their global Free Trade Zone locations. It was one of the most pleasant important transactions I have ever experienced. I now get to enjoy the beauty of this rare & important diamond while it appreciates steadily in value. I’m so glad I found Sherwoods.”
