Why Should You Do Jewelry Appraisals?

Most of the time when you inherit jewelry from a loved one or receive something like a diamond ring as a gift, you don’t know what the real value of the jewelry piece is. This is where a jewelry appraisal comes in handy. By using an appraiser for jewelry, you can find out the true value of your jewelry pieces. Furthermore, this is merely one of the reasons to use a jewelry appraiser. There can be many other reasons to have one done. Most of the time people want certified jewelry appraisals done to sell it, for insurance, or for estate planning reasons. Usually, jewelry appraisal consists of details like the estimated diamond weight (in carats), color, clarity, and cut (the 4Cs of measuring a diamond’s value), the metal used, its purity, and its weight. At Denver Diamond Source, we can do appraisals on all kinds of jewelry for you; whether on diamonds, gemstones, gold, or metals.


3 Things you need to know before selling your jewelry.

Before we do a Jewelry appraisal for you, there are a few things you should know. 

It’s a simple process-

A jewelry appraisal is a much simpler process than you might think. Jewelry appraisals only value the worth of the jewelry, like a diamond or gemstone. It should not be seen as an intimidating or overwhelming process. The report is made for you and you alone. The jewelry appraiser is legally bound to ensure that the report is only made for your own eyes.

Three different types of appraisals

There is more than one type of appraisal for jewelry. The three types of jewelry appraisals include a jewelry appraisal for insurance purposes, called a replacement value appraisal; An appraisal for selling purposes called a fair market value appraisal; and an appraisal is done when you need to liquidate the jewelry due to divorce or estate liquidation, called a special liquidation appraisal.

Credentials of the appraiser

An authentic jewelry appraisal can only be done by a certified jewelry appraiser. Besides having experience in the field, the appraiser you use should be a Graduate Gemologist(GG). They should also be a member of recognized organizations like the ASA (American Society of Appraisers) or the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers(NAJA).
