Frequently Asked Questions
“What is the process for getting my jewelry appraised?”
The process for getting your jewelry appraised typically involves scheduling an appointment with a professional appraiser. During the appointment, the appraiser will thoroughly inspect your jewelry and document any relevant information, such as metal content, gemstone quality, and overall condition. They will also take high-resolution photographs of the piece(s). Based on this information, the appraiser will determine the value of your jewelry and provide you with a written report, which can be used for insurance or other purposes.
“How often should I have my jewelry appraised?”
- It is generally recommended to have your jewellery appraised every three to five years, or whenever there is a significant change in the value of the piece, such as the replacement of a gemstone. However, depending on your insurance policy, some insurance companies now require updated valuations once a year. It’s good practice to have it appraised if you’re planning to insure it or if you’re planning to sell it or give it as a gift.
- It’s important to check with your insurance company about their specific requirements for jewelry appraisals and ensure that your jewellery is properly covered.
“What is the difference between a replacement value and a fair market value appraisal?”
A replacement value appraisal determines the cost to replace the item if it were to be lost or stolen, taking into account the current market value of similar items. A fair market value appraisal, on the other hand, determines the price that a willing buyer would pay for the item in its current condition, taking into account factors such as condition, rarity, and desirability.
“Is it necessary to have a gemologist or a certified appraiser to appraise my jewelry?”
Yes, it is necessary to have a professional and certified appraiser to appraise your jewellery. Professional appraisers and gemologists have the knowledge and training to accurately evaluate the value of your jewelry and provide you with a detailed report. They are also recognized by the insurance companies and other organizations.
