About Jewelry Appraisals
The purpose of appraising a jewelry is to assign a value to it, assess its relative quality, and describe everything about it. A document is typically prepared to feature all of the jewelry's analyzable, measurable, and visible facts. For example, a jewelry appraisal document will tell you the markings, materials, and weight of a jewelry. A wide range of jewelry appraisal processes also assess subjective features, such as the overall quality of manufacture, relative rarity, and gemstone quality. When you hire WM Roland Appraisers to appraise your jewelry, you are guaranteed a professional and fair assessment of the jewelry. Because we also act as a jewelry advisor, we can guide you through the process of selling the jewelry after it’s appraised.
Most appraisals of jewelry are done for insurance replacement, i.e., returning the value of the item. An appraisal should also reflect a realistic replacement cost in jewelry stores that regularly sell the same type of jewelry. Of course, many jewelers are able to do this, but so are we! And we can simply appraise the piece of jewelry if you are looking to sell it. Each jewelry appraisal we do is fair and accurate. And on top of that, we act as an advisor for the jewelry and will help you decide what to do when we appraise it. So whether we believe there is a market for it, we will let you know and help you sell it.
Types of Jewelry Appraisals
When it comes to the appraisal of a piece of jewelry, you should know that there are typically two types of appraisals for it. There is the fair market value appraisal and the immediate liquidation value appraisal. Below is more information on the difference between the two. Since we are a professional jewelry advisor, we can consult with you to help you decide what you need.Fair Market Value Appraisals
A fair market appraisal for a piece of jewelry reflects the actual selling price between a willing seller and buyer. Neither party should be compelled by time or buy and sell in the jewelry’s most common market. This appraisal must represent the jewelry’s value in its current, used condition. When you are looking to donate to charity or if you are having an estate appraisal, then this is the way to go. Fair market values are typically lower than retail replacement values. The latter reflects the cost to replace a used item with a newer, equivalent item.Liquidation Value Appraisals
An immediate liquidation value appraisal for a piece of jewelry will typically reflect low values. This is due to the circumstances for the appraisal. Divorce settlements and some types of estate liquidations might require this sort of appraisal. Some less common appraisal types include probate and loan collateral appraisals. So, if you are involved in the buying of an estate
and need a liquidation appraisal, we can help you. Our expertise will allow for fair and accurate appraisals.
