Types of Appraisals

Market Value Estimate

Fair market value must represent the
item’s value in its current (used)
condition. Fair market value is
generally required for charitable
donations and estate appraisals. We
will help you sort, identify, test, and
estimate the value of your items. If
you have a variety of treasures in your
jewelry box we can help you
distinguish what’s authentic, what’s
valuable, and what is fashion or
costume.

Insurance Appraisals

Your Jewelry is not only a treasured
item, it’s an important investment.
Care and maintenance are important
as well as insuring your valuables. In
the event of a loss, theft, or damage
to your item, you will need to have
your jewelry appraised properly for
insurance replacement of your
treaused items.

Most insurance carriers require a
certified appraisal done by a qualified
Jewelry expert. The objective of the
insurance appraisal is to document all
the characteristics and specifications
of your jewelry item. It also includes
professional plotting of center stones
and a photograph of your item. The
insurance appraisal should reflect the
realistic cost of replacing your item.

Appraisal Update

An appraisal update service will
include evaluation, inspection, and
updating of an existing appraisal.
Many insurance appraisals are
required to be updated within a time
range. The appraisal update serves as
an adequate solution to this
requirement. We will include all
existing information, specifications,
current photographs, and an updated
value of your item.
