Jewelry Insurance Replacement Appraisals, Estate Appraisals, and Gemstone Identification. We take great pride in our knowledge of appraisal evaluation. A jewelry insurance appraisal is the determination of an item’s value based on careful examination and market research. It is an informed opinion as to the authenticity, quality, design and value of a piece of jewelry. The opinion is backed by training, experience, and gemological equipment. It is important to protect your most important fine jewelry items from loss, theft, and damage. Most insurance companies require a formal appraisal to properly insure a piece of jewelry. As with all items left in our care, we review identifying characteristics of your items under a GIA microscope. Your items are insured while in our possession, and safely locked away in our safes each night. As recommended by the American Gem Society, the cost of the appraisal is not linked to the value of the item, and only flat rate fees are charged. This is extremely important as the value determination of your items are not dependent upon what we charge for the appraisal.
A complimentary appraisal is offered on all items purchased at Portsche’s Jewelry. As part of the appraisal process, Portsche’s Jewelry offers complimentary cleaning and polishing of your jewelry to restore it to its like-new beauty. Appraisals start at $150 for the first item, $100 for each additional item. Other charges may apply for intricate designs, a large number of varied gemstones, timepieces, or research that is above and beyond an ordinary appraisal. Estate Evaluation
Evaluations are only intended as a guide to pricing. They are estimated by knowledge of the local market and recent sale prices.
