Why You Need a Jewelry Appraisal
In the event your jewelry is stolen or lost, you may not be able to replace it or recover its value without a written estimate of its worth. Also, because most insurance policies will not cover costlier pieces without a written appraisal — including wedding jewelry — securing this information now can save future heartache. Imagine the horror of losing treasured wedding jewelry or an heirloom watch after a home invasion or devastating fire, and you can begin to understand why having this information is essential.
Secondly, if you have inherited jewelry, you may not realize its current worth. Gold, for example, has more than tripled in value since the turn of the 21st century. That means older pieces you keep for sentimental value that are sitting in your jewelry box unworn could be worth hundreds or thousands of dollars. Signed or otherwise unique pieces may have extraordinary value as well. Should you decide to sell, insure or will these pieces to a loved one, a written estimate provides invaluable intelligence.
