INSURANCE REPLACEMENT APPRAISALPROVIDING PEACE OF MIND
Periodic jewelry appraisals are just as critical as routine cleanings and restorative services. Accurate replacement value appraisals and inspections allow heirlooms to be properly insured if they should become lost or stolen. Should you encounter a loss, your insurance company will use this information to help evaluate your options for replacement or compensation as part of your claim.
The GIA Gemologists or GIA Graduate Gemologist at Diamond Vault are able to issue insurance replacement appraisals on a per-item basis for jewelry, watches, precious metals and loose stones. It is important that your item(s) be inspected at the time of assessment and any laboratory certificates like GIA, AGS, or AGTA be available for review at that time as well. Typically these written appraisals are available within a day or two and can be held for pickup, mailed, or emailed. Same day service is available.
For complete estates or multiple items, an hourly rate is available. An annual re-evaluation and update is advised and complimentary with all previously-issued appraisals by Diamond Vault.
