Insurance Replacement Appraisals: We have two Certified Gemologist Appraisers on staff and can offer appraisals for insurance purposes on many types of jewelry and heirlooms.

What is required to insure my jewelry?

Most insurance companies require a written appraisal of each item you wish to insure over $1000. Keep in mind that not all appraisals are created equal. The more details included in the appraisal, the easier it is to replace the item with a similar piece if lost or stolen.

Why do I need an appraisal?

An appraisal makes it easier to replace your jewelry item if it is lost or stolen. Appraisals can also help with a claim on an insured piece if there are lost stones or damage to your jewelry.

How often do I need to have my jewelry appraised?

It is recommended that your appraisals be updated every 3-5 years. When there are substantial increases in the prices of metals and stones it is wise to have your appraisal updated because your piece easily becomes underinsured in these instances and you will not be fully covered in case of a loss.

What happens when I lose a piece of jewelry?

You will need to submit a claim with your insurance company. In most cases a replacement piece will be provided. Some insurance companies provide you with the replacement in other cases you will be able to search out your own replacement.
