A Doctor cannot provide the price to fix a broken arm before seeing the arm and getting X-rays! A doctor needs to see the arm to know how bad the break is, where it is and whether surgery will be required in the hospital or as an out- patient procedure.
Jewelry Appraisals require getting some details from an initial look at the jewelry to determine the complexity of the job before a price can be set.
We try to explain to them that we need to preview the item to determine the complexity (number of stones to measure and grade, rarity, age and designer, time for research, and other factors), as these will affect the appraisal fee, which will vary according to the item.
A cluster ring with multiple diamonds of varying sizes and shapes is more complex than a ring with a single gemstone.
There is NO FEE to Estimate the Cost of your Appraisal before we start the process. We always estimate your fee and Obtain Your Approval before we start any appraisal work.
If you feel the FEE is unreasonable you are under No Obligation to continue the appraisal work and you have lost nothing but the time of the initial look.
