The most important reason to get an appraisal is for insurance purposes. If your jewelry is ever lost or stolen, you must have detailed documentation of its description and value if you hope to have your insurance company help you replace it. Having an appraisal is also important in the event that you ever need to prove that your jewelry is, in fact, yours. Additionally, every two years you should have your appraisal updated. Due to changing market values if you do not have a current appraisal, your jewelry may not be sufficiently insured for its true replacement value, and you will not be fully covered in the event of a loss. An appraisal is indispensable when trying to ascertain the value of your jewelry for estate purposes, divorce settlements, private sales and loans.
