At The King's Jewelers, we understand that your jewelry is valuable to you for its personal and its intrinsic worth. When it is entrusted to us for appraisal, it remains on our premises and is personally evaluated by our Graduate Gemologist. Our appraisals meet the guidelines set by Jewelers of America, Inc. The appraisals are printed on high quality appraisal forms and signed. A copy is included with the original and is also signed and sealed.
An appraisal is an opinion – backed and supported by training, equipment and experience – of the authenticity, quality, design and value of a piece of property. Since it is an opinion, honest variations may occur between competent appraisers.
Most people commonly believe that the declared price is the most important aspect of an appraisal. This is not true. Actually, the part of an appraisal that protects you the most is a detailed description of the jewelry. What should be in the description of your jewelry item?
1.Identification of all major gemstones with a quality description including cut, carat weight, clarity (internal inclusions) and color.
2.Types of metal used and any karatage or trademark stamps.
3.The estimated replacement value
There are generally two types of appraisals – the most common is an insurance replacement appraisal. The insurance replacement value should give you the cost of replacing the jewelry item as closely as possible to the original. To ensure you will receive an equivalent replacement, all details of the item are very important, not just the price. Your insurance replacement appraisal should “fingerprint” your jewelry. Estate evaluation is based on what the items could be sold for at the time of the evaluation but does not constitute an offer to purchase the items.
Charges are on a per-piece basis. Since charging on the value per piece basis could affect an appraiser’s judgment, we prefer to work strictly on a per-piece basis.
