Where to get jewelry appraised?
Your jewelry is usually one the most expensive items that you own. If lost, stolen, or willed to others, you will need a value that has credibility with the insurance company, relatives, or the courts so they can verify its true value. A certified jewelry appraisal requires an appraiser with proper credentials and experience.
If you find someone who claims to be able to give you a jewelry appraisall for free, please consider the true value of such. You need an appraisal that gives you the true replacement value and not a wild guess from an unqualified individual.
