When you bring your jewelry to Floyd & Green, we will give it the careful attention it deserves. You can be confident you are receiving an accurate appraisal from an expert local jeweler.

Why you need jewelry appraisals

One of the main reasons jewelry appraisals are important is to know the replacement value. If your fine jewelry or watches are lost or stolen, your insurance company will use the appraisal to determine reimbursement value.

Jewelry appraisals by an expert gem appraiser are necessary if you plan to buy or sell jewelry. You don’t want to undervalue a piece and lose money. As a purchaser, you want to know the exact value to make sure you aren’t paying too much.

Appraisals are helpful for settling estates upon the death of the owner. If jewelry is bequeathed to someone in a will, the value will be used to determine taxes and settle the estate.

Insurance companies and appraisers recommend updating your jewelry appraisals every two to three years because jewelry prices fluctuate. The older your appraisal, the less accurate the value is.
