As professional, dedicated jewelers, we offer quality jewelry appraisals you can trust. Simply stated, an appraisal is a written document that indicates the estimated cost for replacing a piece of jewelry. An appraisal takes into account current market data and retail prices, as well as the unique attributes of the diamond (cut, color, clarity, carat weight) and precious metals to arrive at a reasonable estimate of the item's worth.
Our customers generally seek appraisals to submit to their insurance companies. This means that if a piece of jewelry becomes lost, stolen, or damaged, the customer can submit an insurance claim and receive an equal replacement for the item. The accurate details contained on our appraisals offer you the best chance for obtaining a replacement that is of the same quality and caliber as the lost item. As a courtesy, we automatically provide appraisals with all diamond engagement rings, customized rings, and diamond rings valued over $1,000.
