South Austin Certified Jewelry Appraisal

Do you need a South Austin certified jewelry appraisal for one of your precious items? Whether it’s the shiny ring your significant other proposed to you with, or a stunning necklace that was passed down from multiple generations, Five Star Jewelry is happy to provide you with an honest, comprehensive appraisal. This appraisal can be used for insurance, taxes, estate or liquidation purposes, though most people have one done for insurance reasons.

 

What Does a South Austin Jewelry Appraisal for Insurance Include?

Appraisals must be comprehensive if they are to be taken seriously. Our appraisals are accepted by all insurance companies and are considered a legal document. Our certified appraisers are sure to evaluate everything carefully when determining how much a piece of jewelry is worth.

Here are some of the elements that we pay attention to during a certified jewelry appraisal in South Austin: 

  • For diamonds - cut, clarity, carat weight and color
  • Type of metal used for prongs and mountings
  • Karatage of gold
  • Stamping of platinum
  • Current retail prices
  • Brand names, serial numbers and model numbers
  • Manufacturer marks

 

Are Jewelry Appraisals for Insurance in South Austin a One-and-Done Deal?

Some people think that once they get a South Austin certified jewelry appraisal done, it’s good for life. However, you should get an appraisal every few years because the cost of stones and metals changes. It’s possible that the jewelry you inherited from your mother is worth a lot more now than it was 10 years ago.

Fortunately, getting a South Austin jewelry appraisal for insurance isn’t complicated. Call Five Star Jewelry and schedule an appointment. Our certified appraisers will do our research and provide you with a detailed report when we are complete - equipped with pictures and graphs! Tuck it away in a safe place, as you could need it one day when filing an insurance claim.
