Why you should have your jewelry appraised:
The most important reason to have your jewelry appraised is for accurate insurance replacement purposes. Throughout the years, the value of fine jewelry, gemstones and other valuables can fluctuate, and typically increase.
If an appraisal is over four years old, the stated value may be out-of-date and as an end result, your jewelry and valuables could be undervalued compared to its current replacement value. There is the risk of considerable loss if jewelry and valuables are lost, stolen or damaged when the replacement values are underinsured.
We recommend you have your fine jewelry and valuables appraised once every four years. Micky's Jewelry Studio appraisals are performed by our own professional appraiser who is also a Graduate Gemologist certified by GIA (Gemological Institute of America) to provide our clients with the most accurate appraisal reports based on current market values.
Appraisals are also used to determine the value or authenticity of fine jewelry, gemstones and valuables for estate and tax planning purposes, divorce settlements, donations or loans.
Every item you buy from Micky's Jewelry Studio over $1,500 comes complete with an appraisal.
