Appraisals for Insurance ($65 per item)
The most common type of appraisal that we do is an appraisal for insurance purposes. This type of appraisal is used to have an item added onto a jewelry rider, which is typically attached to your homeowner’s or renter’s policy. In the case of theft or a loss of a stone, this appraisal states what it would cost to replace the item with a brand new piece of similar quality.
Because market values are constantly changing, we suggest you have a jewelry insurance appraisal performed every three years to ensure your jewelry is adequately insured in the event of a loss.
Appraisals for Legal Purposes ($65 per item)
This type of appraisal is used for estate planning, divorce settlements, and/or bankruptcy purposes. This appraisal bases the value on the item’s current condition in a forced sale. This appraisal will place the lowest value on an item.
