It’s always a good idea to have your jewellery appraised and it is required by many insurance companies. We can facilitate any jewellery appraisals you need. To properly assess your item(s) we do require some time, usually a few days will suffice. Appraisals include a picture of the item for identification, a breakdown of the items attributes including an assessment of all metals and gemstones. Finally a replacement value is determined. For updating old appraisals is always helpful to provide us with the old/expired appraisal for the sole reason of having the proper gemstone weights as they are always estimated if not provided. Gemstones and diamonds are never removed from their settings for appraisal purposes.
