Why and When to Get an Appraisal – Minneapolis Jeweler

Why an Appraisal?

Often there are valid and needed reasons why to have your jewelry appraised. A few examples include insurance companies requiring one in order to issue a policy, perhaps it being a necessity for tax purposes, or even the general curiosity of what that old family heirloom of yours is worth. The positive thing with holding onto jewelry is the value of precious metal is always changing, and your jewelry has more than likely appreciated in value over that period of time.

When to Get an Appraisal

  • Insurance to cover loss, damage or theft
  • Tax evaluation for an estate
  • Comparison of value
  • Collateral
  • Liquidation

To have a sound measurement of value and as metal prices tend to fluctuate, we do recommend having your piece of jewelry appraised every 3-5 years.
