What is a Jewelry Appraisal
An appraisal is a judgement of the value of a specific piece of jewelry on a specific date in a specific condition. It is a document that describes the quantitative and qualitative attributes of the piece required to derive a conclusion about the objective monetary value of the item. A qualified jewelry appraiser is an expert skilled in the science of appraisal through extensive training far above what’s required of normal jewelers.
