Why do I need an appraisal on my jewelry?
Your fine jewelry represents some of your most treasured and valuable possessions. Typically, your basic homeowner’s insurance policy will only cover a small portion of the value of your jewelry items in case of a loss. An appraisal conducted by a trained and experienced insurance replacement professional will insure that you are properly covered for full replacement of your precious items.
Is Continental Diamonds, Inc. qualified to appraise my jewelry?
Every member of the Continental team has at least 25 years of experience in the jewelry industry, as well as training in diamond and gemstone identification and grading by the Gemological Institute of America. We also have a GIA Graduate Gemologist on staff for consultation and verification. Our experience in providing insurance replacement services, and our extensive market knowledge uniquely qualify us to value your jewelry to ensure full coverage while not over-valuing it, which can result in you paying higher than necessary insurance premiums.
How often should I have the value on my appraisals updated?
The “rule of thumb” is once every five years. In today’s volatile economy, it may be necessary to revisit the value of some items every two to three years.
Can I wait while my jewelry is appraised?
Yes. We do appraisals by appointment so that the proper amount of time (15 to 20 minutes per item on average) is set aside to complete the valuation of your items while you wait.
How much does it cost for an appraisal?
As a service to our clients and the insurance industry, we perform appraisals for $50.00 on most items, depending on the design of the jewelry.
