Reasons to Get a Jewelry Appraisal

One of the most common reasons most people have their jewelry appraised is for insurance purposes. If your jewelry is ever lost, stolen, or destroyed due to a natural disaster or other means, then your insurance companies needs to know how much to reimburse you that way you can replace your jewelry.

Another common reason many people get their jewelry appraised is after a family member has left them with their own jewelry. If you have inherited jewelry of any kind, it probably is a good idea to have it appraised to know its value.
