Jewelry holds value – monetary, sentimental… often times both simultaneously. In fact, your jewelry is probably one of the most valuable physical assets in your home. With that said, it’s important to know what those items are worth.
Heaven forbid your jewelry needs to be replaced; you want to make sure you have all your bases covered. Often times these items need to be replaced under less than ideal circumstances, such as theft or natural disaster. You may be looking to sell valuable items after the death of a loved one. You may need the value for tax assessment purposes. With the economy on the rise, there’s also a rise of less-than-ethical companies looking to take advantage and often offer you less than your fare share.
How can you protect yourself? Make sure you hire a certified jewelry appraiser, registered with the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers. It’s also important to hire a certified jewelry appraiser registered with the Better Business Bureau – the higher the rating the better! While we would love for you to use our services, finding an appraiser with these qualities puts you in the right hands.
