Insurance Appraisals – This is our most asked for service. This is a very thorough document, accurately describing your jewelry and the current market value of the jewelry. If the item is lost or stolen, the information containing in this report will permit a new item to be created. With this, you can obtain coverage, for that specific item, from your Homeowner’s Insurance carrier or an Independent Carrier.

Types of insurance available for jewelry - Insurance companies vary on their replacement policies. Ask your particular company how they handle losses. Replacement Insurance is the most common. Your insurance company will replace an item, or pay you no more than their actual cost to obtain it, regardless of the value stated on the appraisal document. You want to have current, realistic values, reflecting what is actually happening in the market. If the value is unrealistically inflated, you will be paying higher premiums for coverage that you will never recover.
