There are many reasons to have your fine jewelry appraised. The most common reason is for insurance purposes. Over time, the value of your jewelry and gemstones can fluctuate greatly. If you insured your jewelry over two years ago, you could be risking a substantial financial loss if the current replacement value is more than it is insured it for. We hope your jewelry is never lost, stolen, or damaged, but having the pieces insured for the current replacement value should give you peace of mind in the event of an insurance claim. We can also determine the value or authenticity of your jewelry for estate and tax purposes, donations, loans, and divorce settlements.
Some merchants may offer you a â€śfree appraisalâ€ť with your purchase. Many times this is used to justify the retail prices of their jewelry. It is advisable to have second opinion to confirm the value of your jewelry. An independent appraiser will take the time necessary to write an accurate and detailed appraisal.
