Why Should You Get a Jewelry Appraisal?

Jewelry appraisals are very important for financial and insurance purposes. Your fine jewelry counts among your financial assets, and it’s important to have a complete and accurate picture of your finances. An updated appraisal provides a precise estimate of your jewelry’s value, which can be important for estate planning, tax purposes, and more. 
Understanding your jewelry’s monetary value is also necessary if you want to insure your jewelry. Life is unpredictable, and no matter how well you take care of your jewelry, it could still be lost, damaged or stolen. If this ever happens, your insurer will need to know your jewelry’s value in order to file the claim. If your appraisal is outdated, you run the risk of being underinsured, which may end up costing you a lot of money. 
Appraisal documents can also provide important details about your piece(s) in the event that you need a jeweler to recreate them. 

What is Included in a Jewelry Appraisal?

With your jewelry appraisal, you will receive documents that give you an accurate and in-depth description of your items, including stone identification, weights and measurements, color and clarity grading, information on the types of precious metals and their values, and photos of the piece(s). Diamond plotting is available upon request.
