The sooner you can get your jewelry appraised, the better. Getting an appraisal when your jewelry is newly purchased will give you one less thing to worry about by protecting the piece if it becomes lost or damaged. At Tobin Jewelers, we offer appraisal services, making it easy to protect your valuable items. Here’s a few reasons why you should get an appraisal for your fine jewelry.
One of the worst things that could happen when purchasing a fine piece of jewelry is finding out you overpaid… by a lot. The last thing you want is to get ripped off. Appraising your jewelry will give you the piece of mind that you paid the right amount, and that the stones are real.
An appraisal is the first step for your insurance company to begin a policy for your jewelry as it documents the value of each piece. Insuring your jewelry is so important, especially if it is high in value. If your piece is lost, stolen, or damaged and you don’t have an appraisal, you won’t be able to replace it for the full amount. To avoid such a devastating thing from happening, be sure to get your jewelry appraised. Your future-self will thank you.
After your initial appraisal immediately after purchasing your fine jewelry, you should get another appraisal every three to five years. The value of jewelry is constantly changing, meaning your jewelry could be worth more in the future than it is now. This is why it is so important to reappraise your jewelry every few years, to make sure the appraisal is accurate and up-to-date.
