About Us


The name "Taylor Hall Jewelry and Appraisal" combines the maiden names of my two grandmothers, Mary Taylor and Gail Hall, in tribute to their impact on me today. Like a lot of women in the jewelry industry, my fascination with jewelry began when I was young and marveled at the jewelry and trinkets that my grandmothers shared with me from their jewelry boxes. The feeling that I was handling actual precious treasure has never left me, it's pretty magical.

I passionately study gemstone, diamond, and jewelry history and current events to better serve my clients. After working for a locally owned jewelry store here in Austin, Texas for a number of years, I chose to pursue additional training and education in order to operate my own jewelry appraisal business. I earned my GIA Graduate Gemologist degree and Member status in the International Society of Appraisers, both of which support my ability to serve my clients to the highest degree in appraisal quality.

Though my main focus is jewelry appraisal here in Austin, you will also find some curated jewelry pieces listed for sale on this website that can ship nationwide.

Please reach out with any questions regarding jewelry or jewelry appraisal, I am here to help.
