There are many reasons for having your jewelry appraised. The most common reason is for the purpose of insurance replacement, the key word being replacement. It is a common misconception that an insurance company will simply cut you a cheque based solely on the appraised value of a lost, stolen, or damaged jewelry item. That is not how a replacement policy works. In the event of a loss, the policy holder is entitled to replacement (there’s that word again) in like, kind and quality. In order to be compensated adequately, the detailed description provided in the appraisal report becomes paramount! Of course, the value needs to be supported by the description as well and must also reflect the current retail market. If an item is evaluated too high, that means overpaying on insurance premiums. If it is undervalued, also referred to upside down, then the money received based on the appraised value will not cover the cost of replacement.read more →

I found Accredited Jewelry Appraisers on google and scheduled a consultation based on the reviews. My experience was better than I could have hoped for. Jeff was very friendly and helpful, comfortable to talk to, and incredibly knowledgeable and professional to work with. He explained the process and what I needed to know about jewelry, the market, appraisals, and his work in a simple and understandable way. His interest in his work was evident, and he was timely and effecient in providing me with an appraisal for my item. He explained his findings very thoroughly, and provided me with more than ample paperwork and photographs to suit my needs. I highly recommend their services.

Jeff and Sharon were amazing to work with! I brought in a case full of inherited jewelry and Sharon spent more than an hour with me going through each item and deciding what was real vs costume. She was so friendly as we talked about the items, I immediately felt at ease. She thoroughly researched the items I left to be appraised and I received a detailed report and a final value well above what I was expecting! I would highly recommend Jeff and Sharon to anyone needing an appraisal!
