Your Jewelry Box offers a variety of jewelry services, including professional appraisals. Whether you need one for insurance, estate, collateral, or other purposes, we combine our many years of experience in appraisals to give you a report that adheres to the top standards in the industry, along with the best customer experience possible.
We always take into consideration the purpose for your appraisals and strive to provide details and factual data in a concise and detailed manner so that your precious items can be recreated if the worst should happen in an insurance scenario. While we can never make up for the sentimental attachment to a piece, it is the job of an insurance appraisal to make an unforseen loss or theft slightly
If your appraisal is for estate purposes, we will provide the same attention to detail as always, while making the legal process and potential taxes or fees associated an easy process to be prepared for. We strive to always value items reasonably but conservatively. We are happy to work with individuals, executors, and legal representatives.
What to Know About Appraisals?
An Appraisal is a professional opinion of value for a specific purpose. There are different types of appraisals for different purposes, so it’s important to know why you need one. Appraisals are done for the following reasons:
Insurance Replacement Policies
Dissolution of Marriage Appraisals
Equitable Distribution of Property
(You may just want to know a pieces value.)
The price of gemstones and precious metals are always changing, sometimes by the hour that's why we recommend that you have your jewelry appraised every 3-5 years.
