A jewelry appraisal is a document which describes the item’s value or what it should be insured for. Designer jewelry should usually come with an appraisal, but if you have lost the document or are looking to renew it, you may look for a professional to help with jewelry appraisal.
In an appraisal, you will be able to find information on the particular piece of jewelry. This includes the estimated diamond weight, the clarity of the diamond, the color, and other details such as the type of metal used in the making of the jewelry, as well as how heavy the jewelry is. It will also state if the piece of jewelry contains other gemstones.
Jewelry appraisal can help with insurance purposes. This document should be renewed regularly every few years as the price of diamonds and precious metal is always fluctuating. In the case where your designer jewelry is stolen or lost, your insurance company can use the appraisal as proof of ownership and can help to replace the item according to the value that is written on the appraisal.
Designer jewelry usually uses good quality materials like precious metals, diamonds, gemstones and more. This is why they come at a higher price point. People often turn to designer jewelry to celebrate occasions, such as an engagement, wedding, anniversaries, birthdays and more. When good quality materials are used, designer jewelry can last a lifetime.
Some of the popular brands of designer jewelry include Verdura, Bulgari, Harry Winston, Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, Messika, and more.
When you bring your jewelry to get appraised, the jewelry will first be cleaned thoroughly. They will then be inspected and evaluated. The appraiser will then measure and identify the materials used in the making of the jewelry, and accurately describe the jewelry. The jewelry will also be graded by its quality. Photos will then be taken of the item, and each component will be given a value. After this is done, the overall value of the designer jewelry will be calculated. The document will be formatted and printed as the jewelry appraisal.
