Your jewelry is valuable to you – you love it, you treasure it. There is emotional value and monetary value. You may have inherited a beautiful piece or were gifted new jewelry. In any case, you may not know the value of a watch or ring. If you want to have your jewelry insured, you will need to know what it is worth. Our experts are here to ensure you get the most out of your jewelry.
To answer the value question, you need a jewelry appraisal from Romance Diamond. And not just any appraisal. It is important you have a certified gemologist or appraisal expert inspect and value your jewelry.
Brendon Padilla is our gemologist. He is certified by the Gemological Institute of America.
With your appraisal you will receive documentation needed for your insurer. You will also have a copy you can keep in your records should you want to sell your jewelry or watch in the future.
When you come to the jewelry appraisal, it will help us if you bring any documentation you might already have, such as a sales slip, a diamond or gemstone grading report, or warranties if they exist.
Brendon will take into account:
- Current retail prices
- Serial numbers, model numbers, brand names and any other identifying features
- Carat weight for gold
- Stamping of percentage on platinum
- The mounting metals
- For gemstones and diamonds, the 4Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat weight)
To complete your jewelry appraisal, you will receive a detailed report, with pictures and diagrams, and a statement of what your jewelry or watches are worth.
