So, Why Would You Need a Jewelry Appraisal?

First and foremost, jewelry lovers seek the expertise of an experienced appraiser for a fair and accurate appraisal, not to mention, peace of mind. Establish the purpose of the appraisal with your appraiser upfront, as the value assigned to your jewelry, diamonds or gemstones can vary depending on what you need the appraisal to do.

In practical terms, appraisals are used for the following:

  • As an insurance policy requirement to cover loss, damage or theft
  • In an estate tax evaluation
  • In a value comparison
  • To determine the value of family heirlooms
  • During divorce proceedings
  • As a collateral valuation
  • During a liquidation of assets

When to Get an Appraisal

Whether you want to update your insurance policy or simply get a measurement on your investment, we recommend having your jewelry appraised every three to five years. Precious metal, diamond and gemstone prices can fluctuate dramatically, so your jewelry can appreciate over time.
