An insurance appraisal is used to describe your jewelry and establish a maximum risk to the insurance company to replace your item with another item of like kind and quality. We offer insurance appraisals at a reasonable fee, which is determined at the time the jewelry is left. Your jewelry will be identified and valued by a Gemologist in the form of a typed appraisal. Appraisals are completed in the order they are received in a week or less. While we do not offer while you wait appraisals, we do have same-day and next day appraisal services available by appointment.
If you need to make a claim to your insurance company we suggest you use the following procedure. First call your agent and describe your loss. If the agent feels your policy may cover your loss you will be given a claim number. Try to get a phone number and fax number of the adjuster. We will prepare an estimate for replacement on your behalf. If the item is damaged bring it in for our inspection. Bring in any supporting documents you may have like appraisals, pictures or receipts. We can then fax the estimate to your insurance company.
An estate appraisal is used to describe your jewelry and establish a fair market valuation suitable for tax purposes.

We offer estate appraisals at a reasonable fee. Your jewelry will be identified and valued by a Gemologist in the form of a typed appraisal. While we do not offer while you wait appraisals, we do have same-day and next day appraisal services available by appointment.
