We perform both insurance appraisals and estate appraisals. No appointment is needed for jewelry appraisals. We will give you a cost estimate on the spot for the appraisal work with no obligation.
The Appraisal Process
Appraisal costs reflect the type, number and size of the diamonds or gemstones, as well as the complexity of the piece. Each diamond or gemstone is individually measured, examined for color clarity and size. Approximate diamond and gemstone weights are calculated (unless actual weights are known) and precious metal is weighed.
Our GIA trained appraisal staff completes all of our insurance and estate appraisals in house. After cleaning and inspecting your jewelry, significant time is spent evaluating and grading your jewelry to ensure the appraisal is thorough and accurate. All appraisal work is done under the supervision of a GIA certified Graduate Gemologist. Urbanowicz Jewelers is a member of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers.
