When getting jewelry appraised, you should ensure that the appraisal comes with key information. Insurance companies need this information to price and issue a policy. Jewelry Judge Ben Gordon Appraisal Reports follow these strict guidelines when appraising jewelry for you.
- Identification of all gemstones along with their shape, measurements, and weights.
- All diamonds described by the “Four C’s” color, clarity, cut, and carat weight.
- All major colored gems described by their color with a recognized description system detailing hue, tone, saturation, clarity and cut.
- Pearls should be described by their color, luster, nacre, shape, blemishes, size and matching.
- Metals should be described as to their carat content (14K, 18K, etc.) as well as platinum and other metal groups.
- The type of construction, craftsmanship, design and makers mark.
- A photograph of the item from all sides.
- The date, appraiser’s name and signature, addendum information, and qualifications page.
- The value and the purpose or function of the appraisal.
If your previous jewelry appraisals are one-paragraph long, on a napkin, have no photo, or appears to be a generic report, it’s time to step up to the professional documents supplied by The Jewelry Judge. It’s your best protection in the event of loss or damage to your jewelry.
