Jewellery is often a treasured possession, whether it holds sentimental value, is a family heirloom, or is an investment. Regardless of its worth, it is important to protect it with insurance. One of the most crucial steps in insuring your jewellery is getting it appraised or valued. At Jewellery Valuations Dublin, we believe that there are many reasons why it is important to have your jewellery appraised for insurance purposes, and we would like to share them with you.
- Determine the true value of your jewellery: The only way to determine the accurate value of your jewellery is to have it appraised. A professional appraiser will consider the materials used, design, craftsmanship, and market conditions to determine the value of your jewellery. This information is critical in ensuring that your insurance policy covers the full value of your jewellery.
- The right insurance coverage: With an accurate appraisal, you can ensure that you have the right insurance coverage for your jewellery. If you underinsure your jewellery, you will not receive the full value if it is lost, stolen, or damaged. On the other hand, if you overinsure your jewellery, you will be paying more than you need to for insurance coverage.
- Protection against inflation: The value of your jewellery can increase over time due to inflation. It is important to have your jewellery appraised periodically to reflect the current market value. This way, you can ensure that your insurance policy covers the full value of your jewellery in case of loss, theft, or damage.
- Estate planning: If you plan to pass down your jewellery to future generations, it is essential to have it appraised. A professional appraisal will give you a written record of the value of your jewellery, which can be used for estate planning purposes.
- A smoother claims process: In the event of loss, theft, or damage, the insurance claims process can be complicated. With an accurate appraisal, you will have a clear understanding of the value of your jewellery, which can simplify the claims process. Additionally, a professional appraisal report can serve as proof of ownership, which can be important in resolving insurance claims.
- Peace of mind: Knowing that your jewellery is fully insured gives you peace of mind. With an accurate appraisal, you can rest assured that your jewellery is protected, and that you will receive the full value in case of loss, theft, or damage.
- Protection against fraud: In some cases, individuals may attempt to sell counterfeit or fake jewellery as authentic. An appraisal by a professional and reputable appraiser can help protect against fraud by providing an accurate and detailed description of your jewellery, including its materials, design, and craftsmanship.
