A parents death is a traumatic and difficult experience for those left behind.
Don’t let the estate settlement of your jewelry cause additional complexity or disharmony among your heirs.
We know jewelry is important to some and less important to others.
To some it is memories and a story that connects them to the dearly departed.
To others it represents a financial gift.
Protect Your Inheritance by ensuring you have fair market value appraisal reports for your estate jewelry and include a copy with your will. Designate an heir to receive each piece or have the estate sell the jewelry, since cash is always easier to fairly distribute.
Prevent misunderstandings and ill feelings. If you are in the process of settling an estate that includes jewelry, bring it in for a consultation, so we can help identify what is real and what is costume jewelry. Too often people discard items, thinking them fake when they are actually real. Some costume jewelry has value as collector items.
Don’t let some appraiser come in and cherry-pick the best pieces.
We Do Not Buy or Sell Jewelry!
