WHAT IS A JEWELRY APPRAISAL?
When looking to sell your jewelry, most people tend to include this in the process. A jewelry appraisal is the process in which a certified professional examines and states a dollar-value for a piece of jewelry. There are 27 types of appraisals that suit different purposes. For example there are a few for tax purposes, some for insurance purposes, and others for reselling purposes. Within a jewelry appraisal, both the precious metals and gems are considered.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR DURING OUR MEETING
- A process that matches the ultimate purpose of evaluating jewelry
- A clear explanation of the grading process and measurements used
- A definitive statement of value with seal or signature by an authorized appraiser
- A statement of the appraisal purpose on the certificate
- An open discussion in which you can ask any questions of the appraiser
DIAMOND JEWELRY APPRAISAL VS. DIAMOND JEWELRY GRADING
While jewelry evaluation is the process of assigning monetary value to a piece of jewelry for a specific purpose, diamond jewelry grading is the thorough evaluation of the jewel’s stone and its attributes: carat, cut, color and clarity. Gradings are carried out in renowned gemological laboratories like GIA and IGI by certified professionals. The market assigns value to diamond jewelry according to their grading, so if you know your stone’s 4 C’s, you can get an estimated market value. Ultimately, a diamond grading report is the most transparent, accurate and objective tool you need to determine how the market values your diamond jewelry in a specific moment in time.
WHERE CAN I FIND OUT THE VALUE MY JEWELRY?
There are a few ways in which you can learn the value of your jewelry. The most obvious route is at your local jeweler. They are likely to be certified and qualified to give the service of pricing your jewelry. In this case, you need to make sure that they carry out a resale appraisal, and not another kind of appraisal, like those for insurance or tax.
Another method of finding the value your jewelry can be done at any approved gemological lab such as GIA, EGL, IGI, or AGS. If your jewelry does not include any precious gemstones and is made of a precious metal such as platinum or gold, you can simply have it weighed. The value of a precious metal is determined purely by its weight and position in the current market.
