What Is The Purpose of an Appraisal?

A brief definition of a jewelry appraisal is to state specifically what types of materials are used in a particular article of jewelry as well as to state the insurance replacement value. Appraisals are usually completed shortly after the jewelry item is made into its final form. It is very helpful to receive an appraisal that way you know the carat size of the diamonds or precious gemstones that are used in an engagement ring or other piece of jewelry as well as the quality of the stones that are used. Also, the appraisal will state what type of metal is used to create the jewelry (example: 14k gold, 18k gold, platinum, etc.).

Customers normally get an item of jewelry appraised because they are interested in getting their jewelry insured. Engagement rings, diamonds, and other jewelry are normally very expensive items. Jewelry insurance is important to have especially on an expensive piece just in case the item is ever lost, stolen, or damaged. To get jewelry insurance you need to contact an insurance provider and they will normally require an appraisal that is done by an independent 3rd party GIA graduate gemologist GIA appraiser.

People often want to get their jewelry appraised before they sell it, however, this can lead to confusion. At Diamond Exchange Houston we are top diamond buyers and jewelry buyers and we often have to educate customers on the true value of their jewelry. The appraised value is normally a lot higher than the actual price of the jewelry purchased. Often, it can lead to major disappointment when a customer wants to sell their jewelry. If you have jewelry to sell and would like to get maximum value then contact Diamond Exchange Houston today about selling your jewelry on consignment.

I found amazing deals on engagement rings when I found Diamond Exchange Houston. Me and my now fiancé had searched at normal name brand jewelry stores before we found Diamond Exchange Houston. We were actually referred to them by a friend who had a custom engagement ring made there. Their diamond rings are like half as expensive as the other jewelry stores we shopped at. We were able to pick out the main diamond and have it placed in a ring they had we liked. They had it ready for us within a week. It also came with an GIA appraisal which we used to get insurance. 5 stars and we will be back for our wedding bands!

My mom bought her ring with Diamond Exchange many years ago and now I too am a client! I worked with Gili! He was professional during the process when I contacted him regarding my quest to find the prefect diamond ring. I was going to purchase online for competitive pricing, however, Gili took the time to explain the importance of seeing a diamond in person to make sure the ‘eye clean’ factor was there. Then the journey began with my customize band. I found pictures with precise features I desired. Gili delivered exactly what I wanted. I am meticulous and expected the best. Gili provided me the exact ring I wanted. He constantly kept me updated through the entire process. I have found an exceptional jeweler to work to make more custom pieces. I highly recommend Gili to anyone that is ready to purchase customized jewelry. Also his coworker Nic shares an office with him and is also a resource to contact! Either of them will assist you with comparing, finding, and providing you with the exact piece of jewelry your heart desires! Thank you Gili for proving me with a breath taking ring!

I would like to thank Nick for creating my dream ring. He took the time to send pictures during the design process and then again while creating the ring to ensure we were happy with the final product. This was a wonderful experience and the ring is gorgeous!

I went to Diamond Exchange Houston in search of a wedding band that would compliment a custom wedding ring I had made for Fiance. Diamond Exchange Houston did not disappoint. They were very accommodating and had multiple options to choose from. They were able to take our ideas and craft us the perfect wedding band to go with my Fiance's ring. The staff is very friendly and gave me updates on the band throughout the process. Their prices are very reasonable and quite frankly are beat all of the surrounding jewelers' prices.If you're in the Houston area and are looking for custom work or Jewelers I would highly recommend Diamond Exchange Houston.(P.S. I typically don't write reviews, but their work was amazing and I had to share!)
