Why Get a Jewelry Appraisal?
Though your jewelry is priceless to you, its market value is always changing based on the prices of precious metals and gemstones. Only a professional jewelry appraiser can give you an accurate estimate of what your jewelry is worth.
It is important to have your jewelry professionally appraised for a number of reasons. Firstly, understanding the value of your jewelry helps you have a better grasp on your overall finances. It can be important for tax purposes, estate planning, and in other situations where accurate financial information is needed.
Second, appraisals are vital for insurance purposes. If your jewelry is ever stolen, lost or damaged, your insurance company will need your appraisal documents to help you settle the claim. If your appraisal is outdated, it won’t reflect your jewelry’s current value, and you could be underinsured. So, investing in an up-to-date appraisal now may end up saving you a lot of money down the line.
Finally, when you get an appraisal, the jewelry appraiser will document the details of your jewelry’s appearance. Through photographs, measurements and precise descriptions, an appraisal will capture all of the specifications of your jewelry. If your jewelry is ever lost, stolen or damaged, these documents can help a jeweler recreate your pieces.
