There may be many reasons that you want to know the exact value of your fine jewelry. One of the most importance reasons should be for insurance purposes. Just as with any valuable possession you own, it is just as important to obtain insurance for your jewelry.
If you have fine jewelry that you have yet to insure, it is important for you to seek out professional jewelry appraisal services promptly. Even if you have a bill of sale stating the value of the piece when you purchased it, it is highly advised to have your jewelry appraised every three years. This is necessary even if you are covered by homeowners insurance. Without an appraisal you may not have adequate coverage.
Over the years, the value of your jewelry and gemstones can change frequently with substantial variations in worth. If your last appraisal is more than two years old it is very likely it is out dated and could cause your jewelry to be insured for less than its actual value. In turn, if your jewelry is damaged, lost, or stolen, you could take a serious financial loss.
Appraisal of your fine jewelry is very affordable and is not charged according to the value of your jewelry. The cost will be set according to the amount of time it takes a trained professional to perform it. It is also very affordable to obtain insurance. It is estimated that annual costs will average $1 to $2 for every $100 the appraised value.
If your jewelry is valued at $1,000 to replace, you can estimate your annual cost to be in the $10 to $20 range. It is immensely worth any time, effort and cost to make sure your valuables are fully protected in the event that something should happen.
