What is an Insurance Appraisal?
A jewelry appraisal is an opinion of value for a piece of jewelry (including watches) on a particular date for the current jewelry market. Depending on how valuable your jewelry collection is, it is recommended to get it appraised every 1 to 3 years.
Why Do I Need an Insurance Appraisal for Jewelry?
Diamonds, precious metals and colored gemstone prices fluctuate from year to year, depending on market conditions. Having an updated appraisal ensures you’re fully protected in the unfortunate event of theft, damage or loss. An appraisal is often required for insurance purposes, detailing the value of the piece.
The appraisal process can also be quite informative. The appraisal will tell you everything you need to know about the type of stones, the cut, color clarity and carat weight of the stones as well as the make-up of the materials and a replacement value.
