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.
