Jewelry Appraisals

  • Jewelry Appraisals done on premises by our GIA Certified Gemologist.

  • Special rates for estates or multiple items.

Jewelry appraisals are usually done for Insurance coverage and  replacement, estate planning, establishing fair market value or for quality confirmation.  An appraisal describing your jewelry and its worth assures you of a comparable replacement in case of loss.  Appraisals are generally performed on items valued in excess of $500.

Don't forget to update your appraisals

Verify with your insurance company how often they require an appraisal in order for the insurance to remain valid.  Prices have increased rapidly over recent years.  It is your responsibility to provide your insurance company with the required appraisals, and not their responsibility to remind you to update the appraisals.  Sadly we have seen some of our customers loose a cherished piece of  jewelry which has grown in value of the years. Unfortunately the insurance companies will only reimburse you for the value on the  old appraisal  even though it may be worth twice as much today.
