Appraisals are generally confusing to the consumers.The reason being is that they are never the same price you paid for the items. Here we will try to clarify some of the confusion around appraisals So there are two types of appraisals when it comes to jewelry. There is a retail jewelry appraisal which is used for insurance for replacement value for your items should they ever become lost or stolen. These appraisals contain details descriptions of the items, pictures and a replacement cost for the item. The prices on these appraisals are at full retail cost. Generally our customers want to know what we would buy their items for. That would be the second type of appraisal which is a resale appraisal. When customers ask what our price to buy their items that’s where our master gemologist and master appraiser will come out and determine whether the item has additional value for example is your item worth more then just gold weight. Is it a unique piece? What are the size of the diamonds. These are just a couple of examples of what can increase the value of your items. Never expect the resell appraisal to be what the retail appraisal is. Typically the retail appraisals are even higher than what you actually paid for the item. This is to adjust for inflation as well as cover the costs if you have to have the piece custom made to replace it. Since we are a full service fine jewelry company we offer both types of appraisals to the public.That way you can have a replacement value for your insurance company as well as what you can resell your items for. Being the friendly jewelers we are, be sure to ask us for a cash price for your items as well. This cost you nothing at all for a friendly hand shake appraisal. Our master appraiser asks that you bring any papers and the history of your items with you to assist in the appraisal process.
We do not advise you to sell your jewelry online. Selling locally is always your best option. The B.B.B. receives constant complaints about these online companies giving low ball offers on your jewelry. We agree. Come into our showroom or let us come to you (if you have a large enough collection to meet our standards) to make you an offer. While you can send in pictures through our contact form to get you a rough idea we always need to see the jewelry in person to make a proper offer. We have been in the same location since November 1993. The B.B.B. and the O.C.C.C. both suggest selling to an established jewelry company with strong community ties. Selling to an established jewelry company in your area will always give you the best result for your buying or selling needs.
