What is an Appraisal?
A jewelry appraisal is an opinion of value for a piece or pieces of jewelry (including watches) on a particular date for the current jewelry market. It is recommended you get your jewelry appraised every 1-3 years, depending on how valuable the piece is. The Jewelry Center offers appraisal services which are affordable and convenient. Stop in any time to meet our Greenfield goldsmith and Brookfield jewelers. We’ll gladly assist you though the process.
Why do I need an Appraisal?
Diamonds, precious metals and colored gemstone prices fluctuate from year to year, depending on market conditions. Having an updated appraisal ensures you’re fully protected in the unfortunate event of theft, damage or loss. An appraisal is often required for insurance purposes, detailing the value of the piece.
The appraisal process can also be quite informative. Our appraisers use industry leading tools to distinguish between different stone qualities ensuring you get full coverage for your fine jewelry. The appraisal will tell you everything you need to know about the type of stones, the cut, color clarity and carat weight of the stones as well as the make-up of the materials and a replacement value.
