What is a Jewelry Appraisal?
In general, an appraisal is a document that describes an item, assesses its relative quality and assigns a value to it. So when it comes to the appraisal of a piece of jewelry, the descriptions usually cover the visible, measurable and analyzable facts about it. This includes features such as weight, materials, and markings. Most appraisals of jewelry also describes subjective features, such as gemstone quality, relative rarity and overall quality of manufacture.

Most appraisals of jewelry is done for insurance replacement. So the point of the insurance is to return the value of the item.

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 will reflect an actual selling price between a willing buyer and seller, when neither is compelled by time or need to buy or sell in the item’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 standard way to go. Fair market values often run lower than retail replacement values. This is due to the fact that replacement values often reflect the cost to replace a used item with a new equivalent.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.
