While the most popular reason for an appraisal is to acquire insurance coverage; appraisals are also available for estate or equitable distribution purposes. We will discuss which type of appraisal best suits your needs during the appointment. After inspection and cleaning, the jewelry appraiser will ask if you have any questions about the item(s) or simply begin a pleasant conversation while performing the appraisal. At completion, documents will be printed and bound, and results will be reviewed in detail. Payment will be collected at this time and all items will be returned. In the event more than 5 items are appraised, the jewelry appraiser will photograph each item and collect all important information needed to complete the appraisal, but will mail the final documents in 5-7 business days. You will be able to take all your jewelry items home with you at the completion of the appointment.

Professional appraisers are few and far between; the typical jewelry appraisal is done by a sales person working at a jewelry store. Most do not have formal Gemological training or am appraisal writing standards education.
