Jewelry appraisals – a very smart thing to do

Jewelry appraisals – a very smart thing to doDo you know what your jewelry is worth? The answer may surprise you. Worldwide precious metal markets are constantly in flux – but almost always on the increase.

Gold is a great example. From a low of around $300 per ounce about ten years ago, the price of gold today is about $1300 per ounce. That’s a remarkable increase! And with platinum and silver rapidly increasing value as well, just think what that means to the declared value of your wedding ring, your antique or fine jewelry!

Diamonds and precious gemstones have seen jumps in values too, some 30% and more, depending on the size and quality.

That increase makes it absolutely critical that you stay up to date on jewelry appraisals. Because, unfortunately, if your insurer doesn’t have an up to date appraisal, you are not going to get full value for your jewelry in the event of a loss, theft or damage.

Our state-of-the-art appraisal service includes experienced Aronstam appraiser/gemologists to provide you (and your insurers) with qualified written appraisals. Not only will they specify the gold or silver weight of your jewelry, but every Aronstam appraisal will also highlight gem stone details by color, cut and clarity. We then go on to evaluate mountings and jewelry craftsmanship, especially important for heirloom and antique jewelry.

If it’s been more than 3 years since you’ve had your fine jewelry appraised, I urge you to stop by and speak with our staff appraiser.

We have appointments available to have that special item appraised while you wait, or you can drop off several pieces and have them all appraised at once.  It is a simple thing, but it will absolutely provide you with peace of mind.
