Why Get Jewelry Insurance Appraisals?
First, insuring your jewelry allows you to wear even your finest gems with complete peace of mind instead of locking it up in a safe where you cannot enjoy it. One of the things insurance companies require is a jewelry appraisal, which indicates the replacement value of the item should it become damaged, lost or stolen.

What Is Included in a Proper Appraisal Report?
- Cover: This part of the document should provide a detailed explanation of the type of value the appraisal intends to determine, the objective and the function of the appraisal. It should also identify who the client is and the intended users of the appraisal. The cover also indicates the location and dates of the appraisal.
- Grading Systems: A description of the different systems used to grade diamonds, pearls and colored gemstones.
- Appraiser Profile: This contains information about the professional appraiser such as his/her educational background and work experience. Putting this information in writing is very important to let the client know if the appraiser has the right education and training to evaluate high-value jewelry and how current his/her knowledge and skills are.
- Appraisal Body: This is the section in the report that contains specific details about the item and must be written properly.
- Reverse Side: This is the back of the document and should contain laboratory work and photos as well as all other supporting materials not included in the cover or appraisal body.
Up-to-Date Appraisals on Jewelry
If your jewelry appraisals are over two years old, they may be out-of-date. This could result in your jewelry being underinsured since your insurance would only cover your item up to the replacement value indicated in your old appraisal. Without updating your jewelry insurance appraisals, you are risking a significant financial loss if your fine jewelry becomes damaged, lost or stolen. To protect your assets and your finances, we recommend upgrading jewelry appraisals every two years.Why do you need to ensure your jewelry appraisals are current? Insurance purposes would be the most important reason why you want up-to-date appraisals on your jewelry. Over the years, the value of gemstones and precious metals can fluctuate significantly so the value of a piece of jewelry today which was bought five years ago would most likely be far from its purchase value.
Knowing the value of your fine jewelry in the current market is the only way you can be certain that you will be adequately covered by your insurance against jewelry damage, loss or theft. Upgrade your jewelry appraisals today and find out the real value of your jewelry. Raymond Lee Jewelers will provide you with an accurate appraisal based on current market values to ensure that you will get sufficient insurance coverage.
