Why All Jewelry Owners Should Have Their Pieces Appraised

At Gems Are Forever, our Beverly Hills staff are Graduate Gemologists (G.G.) from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) who know the value of having jewelry appraised.

We purchase and sell fine jewelry, diamonds, gemstones, and luxury timepieces, and believe the value behind an appraisal allows the owner to understand the origin of their pieces, while gaining the knowledge of their actual worth for personal reasons and accurate insurance protection.

Here is what you can gain from a professional jewelry appraisal.

Gain Intimate Knowledge About Your Jewelry

Whether it is pins and brooches, earrings, rings, bracelets, or necklaces, a professional jewelry appraisal can provide the knowledge you need to identify its style, including Antique, Art Deco, Retro, Vintage, and Contemporary, and its composition — including the type of metals, gemstones, or other characteristics.

Going forward, when someone compliments your jewelry, you will be able to relay its story, structure, and configuration while knowing its actual worth.

Proof of Ownership and Financial Evaluations for Insurance Purposes

Jewelry insurance premiums are typically based on the value of the jewelry, so that figure must be correct, in case anything happens to it.

A professional jewelry appraisal also substantiates proof of ownership in case it is ever stolen and recovered by police, so you can recover the item(s) without delay.

An up-to-date appraisal also keeps a record of the current value in case you wish to sell the item in the future.

Reason Three: Personal Protection & Peace of Mind

A jewelry appraisal allows you to protect yourself and ensure the integrity of the piece is genuine, with the added value of looking for damage before it results in a loss.

It is always beneficial to hire a professional jeweler, rather than to find out in the future that some of the most beautiful and sentimental purchases you make are not properly protected.
