You may wish to get your jewellery appraised for a variety of reasons. Perhaps your insurance company requires appraisal documentation for an insurance rider. You may have inherited some jewellery from a family member and be curious about the value and materials. If you are an executor of a will, the lawyer may request proper documentation for estate probate. Appraisals can be completed for comparison and verify details of a recent purchase. You may choose to sell some of your jewellery items and be unsure of what to sell it for. Having up to date appraisals on all of your jewellery items allows for a smoother and quicker division of assets in the unfortunate event of a divorce. Appraisals are often completed out of interest. Valuations can provide interesting history and information, especially on antique items.
Many jewelers may offer complimentary appraisals with the purchase of a piece of jewellery. It is always advisable to have a second opinion to confirm the quality and value. Appraisals by an independent appraiser are completely unbiased. We take the time to properly examine your items, answer your questions and complete detailed reports. Our goal is to provide you with realistic replacement values for the appropriate market.
It was a pleasure dealing with Sherrie this week. I had a few rings to get appraised and not only was she personable and friendly and efficient. Sherrie is extremely knowledgeable and had my appraisals completed that day! I would absolutely recommend her services and am extremely happy that I now have proper documentation for my pieces. Thank you so much
