Estate Jewelry & Jewelry Insurance Appraisals
Like new jewelry, your vintage and estate jewelry will benefit from an official estate jewelry appraisal. There are several different types of appraisals that can be conducted on your valuable items. One type is called Replacement Value New appraisal. This report estimates the price you’d pay if you had to go in a retail store and purchase your exact jewelry item again.
For the estate and vintage jewelry that you have, a Resale Value appraisal is made. This document reports the current value of the estate item if it were to be resold to another willing party, whether a private individual or an estate jewelry reseller.
Our appraiser takes into consideration many factors when examining an estate piece. While fashion trends and market demands are certainly important while calculating its appropriate current value, the overall condition of the piece and its quality of manufacture must be taken into consideration. Finally, the range of markups in its appropriate market will come into play to determine the final estimated value placed on the item.
