WHY IS AN APPRAISAL IMPORTANT?
Precious metals and gems are entities with prices that can fluctuate. The details in your appraisal clearly define the qualities and attributes of those metals and gems so that a determination of value can be consistently assessed over time. It is therefore best to have your appraisals updated every 3 to 5 years to keep your insurance coverage up to date, not to mention for your personal knowledge in case of a chip or missing gem.
Also, since insurance companies do not cover normal wear and tear of your jewellery, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that during the appraisal, we will identify any small problems – such as loose gems, worn prongs and faulty clasps which may have occurred over time.
Lastly, we return your item to you cleaned and polished… albeit a small but highly worthwhile benefit!
Our prices are very competitive, if not the lowest in town.
