An appraisal is an opinion as to the authenticity, quality, design and value of a piece of jewelry. This opinion is backed and supported by training, equipment and experience.
Although a declared price evaluation is an important aspect of an appraisal another critical part of the appraisal is the detailed description of the jewelry item, the content of the metal content, the gemstones are identified, measured and graded for color and clarity. This protects you and insures you will receive an insurance replacement of comparable value.
