FAQ's regarding appraisals: Why do I need an appraisal?
The most common reason for getting a jewelry appraisal is for insurance purposes. However, we also do appraisals for fair market value and estate inheritance. It is highly recommended that you keep an up to date appraisal on your cherished pieces. The value of your jewelry can fluctuate greatly and in the event that something gets lost or stolen it is unfortunate if the appraised value is not accurate.

Each appraisal includes complete laboratory testing of your jewelry and an appraisal report for your records. The report contains the following information:

A detailed description of diamonds and gemstones (carat weight, cut, clarity, color, proportion, measurements and finish).
Photograph if requested.
The appraised value of your jewelry.
