We offer a wide range of services to cover your needs as listed:
Appraisal for Insurance purposes – getting this type of insurance will ensure that your gem is insured at the right value so that you can afford to replace it should the need ever arise due to loss or theft. It is important to keep your appraisals current and make sure that the replacement value reflects the current market price.
Appraisal for Estate or Fair Market – this type of appraisal will give you an idea of the fair market value should you decide to liquidate your gems. The value may often change because of the conditions in the current market. Also, if you are liquidating an estate or if you have inherited some estate jewelry then this is also a great way to assess the value based on fair market pricing.
