Your Jewelry Never Leaves Your Sight.
Insurance appraisals are the most commonly requested appraisal. They are used to obtain insurance coverage on existing or newly acquired jewelry items against loss, theft or damage, depending on the policy. We provide detailed appraisal reports to establish the approximate retail replacement of the item(s) to be insured.
Our certified jewelry appraisals include a detailed description of the item(s) of jewelry, including gemstone identification, color and clarity grading, measurements, calculated carat weights, plotting diagrams for major gemstones, quality and condition assessment of the setting, metal testing, as well as digital photographs. Our jewelry appraisals are accepted by all insurance companies. The thoroughness of a certified jewelry appraisal report will determine how well you are covered in the event of loss, theft or damaged. This is when a professionally prepared jewelry appraisal by a Graduate Gemologist and Certified Jewelry Appraiser is worth the money!
If a loss occurs, your insurance company will replace your lost or stolen jewelry with the same quality jewelry detailed in the appraisal report.
Without the detailed documentation any loss is subject to replacement jewelry of lesser quality, and you definitely don’t want that!
Our certified jewelry appraisals are done while you wait and watch, in our safe and secure office, by appointment, to ensure your privacy. To schedule an appointment please contact:
