The most common reason for a written jewelry appraisal is for insurance coverage purposes. Insurance companies require a full, detailed document describing your jewelry and its total worth. If stones are included, each need a full description and given a value along with identifying the shape, cut, color, clarity and carat weight. The mounting needs to have a detailed description that includes the weight of the precious metal as well. A complete detailed appraisal can help ensure that you receive a comparable replacement in the unfortunate act of a missing or stolen piece of jewelry.
Given that appraisals require detailed information and photographs, it is always best to make an appointment. You can contact Berilian Jewelers at 916-817-8750 for scheduling.
