Purpose of an Appraisal
An appraisal is a document that assesses the value of an item. This document is used to insure jewelry, attach a replacement value, and describe it in detail so, if ever lost, it can be replaced. An appraisal can also be helpful in the case of an estate valuation.
At Gerald's Jewelers, upon request, we are happy to provide you with an insurance appraisal for any jewelry purchased in our store free of charge. All other insurance appraisal services are available for a fee. If you are simply looking to identify any gemstones you have or whether it is gold or silver, we are happy to do that free of charge! No appointment needed.
Matt Fikse and Dave Fikse are our appraisers here at Gerald's. Together they have over 50 years of combined experience in the industry. Both are GIA Graduate Gemologists and are highly qualified to help you with any of your appraisal needs.
If you are unsure whether or not you need an appraisal, we are happy to advise you, but we are unable to estimate your jewelry's value at a glance due to strict legal guidelines. We apologize for this inconvenience.
