Have you ever had a West Lake Hills certified jewelry appraisal done? Whether this is your first time or you’re in need of an updated appraisal, Five Star Jewelry is happy to help.

With a professional jeweler and a Graduate Gemologist (GIA) on staff, and jewelry designer, you can expect your appraisal to be comprehensive and accurate.


Why is it Important to Have a Certified Jewelry Appraisal in West Lake Hills TX?

The most common reason why people have an appraisal done is for insurance purposes. If you lose your wedding ring or have jewelry stolen from your home, an appraisal can be used to determine how much money your jewelry is valued by your insurance company. Without this important document, the insurance companies won’t know how to  create your premium or know how to reimburse you if you have a loss.

At Five Star Jewelry, we will provide you with an accurate West Lake Hills jewelry appraisal for insurance. It’s based off current market values in the Austin and West Lake Hills area so you can expect adequate insurance coverage if the item is lost, damaged or stolen. Other factors we take into consideration are the metals used in the prongs and mountings, the authenticity of the stone and the karatage for gold or platinum.  If you have a diamond, we will look at the four C’s: cut, clarity, color and carat weight and if you have a fine gemstone we look at vividness and quality of the color and cut.


How Often Does a West Lake Hills Certified Jewelry Appraisal Need to be Done?

Some people think that once they have a West Lake Hills jewelry appraisal for insurance purposes, it’s good forever. But, this is not the case. The value of stones and metals changes all the time, so it’s a smart idea to update your jewelry appraisal for insurance in West Lake Hills TX every two to three years. You would hate to lose your wedding ring and find out that your appraisal is over 10 years old!

Bottom line: A West Lake Hills certified jewelry appraisal will help you recover the value of your jewelry if anything were to happen. To schedule your appraisal, call Five Star Jewelry today at 512-306-8200.
