Certified Jewelry Appraisals Tampa Bay ExpertsWhat Is A Jewelry Appraisal?

A jewelry appraisal is an objective, unbiased, fully researched estimate of quality and value of a piece of jewelry. It is the opinion of the Valuer supported by experience, education, training, skills and gem equipment.

First, the Valuer must determine what the intended use of the appraisal is, then ascertain the appropriate market in which to estimate the value. This means whether the appraisal is for retail replacement, reproduction or fair market value, which includes liquidation, auction, casualty damage, and scrap, to name a few.

There are both monetary and non-monetary appraisals.
