Whether you keep valuable jewelry tucked away in your jewelry box or wear it every day, there is a chance that something could happen.
A jewelry appraisal tells a description and a valuation of your piece. Monetary value is based on the appraiser’s opinion, based on research, and experience. Appraisals are important to determine replacement value for insurance purposes. A jewelry appraisal can be done on any item of jewelry.
Unmounted gemstones are not a requirement; in fact the jewelry being appraised doesn't even have to contain a gemstone.
The purpose of a jewelry appraisal is to give a full description of the item being appraised, as well as a dollar value which is often for insurance purposes. An appraisal might also be necessary to settle an estate or a divorce.
Market values change, so most professionals recommend you have fine jewelry appraised every three to five years. Ask your insurance agent for a recommendation.
Always seek out an appraiser who has the credentials to do a professional appraisal. Our appraisals are done by people who are certified in gemstones and precious metals and have years of experience in appraising fine jewelry.
