What Is a Jewelry Appraisal?

Selling your jewelry can become a confusing experience, especially for people who aren’t familiar with the industry. A surprisingly large number of our customers weren’t quite sure what a jewelry appraisal was. The majority of them didn’t understand the difference between a jewelry appraisal and jewelry evaluation. In fact, many of them believe that an appraisal is the actual determining factor for the true financial worth of a piece of jewelry. However, that isn’t entirely true.


The process in which monetary value is assigned to a piece of jewelry for a specific purpose is called a jewelry appraisal. Appraisals are used for insurance purposes in most cases. However, there are many different types of appraisals, 27 to be specific. For example, there are a couple for tax purposes, some reselling purposes, and others for insurance purposes.


How Does a Jewelry Appraisal Work?


In short, a certified professional will examine your piece of jewelry and state a dollar-value for it. Within the appraisal, both the gems and precious metals are considered. Since there are numerous appraisal purposes, the process of your appraisal should match the purpose of the appraisal.


Also, the professional examining your piece should provide a clear explanation of the grading process and the measurements used. After that, you should get a definitive statement of value with signature or seal by an authorized appraiser. On the certificate, there should be a statement of the appraisal purpose.


Lastly, the process should be an open discussion where you feel comfortable to voice any concerns and ask questions. During a professional and high-quality jewelry appraisal, you will be able to really learn about the true value of your pieces.
