Black River Diamond Company proudly provides jewelry appraisals of diamonds and jewelry in the Medford area. Many who plan to keep their cherished diamond jewelry, whether inherited or received to mark a special occasion, neglect to have their pieces appraised. Knowing an accurate and current valuation for jewelry, however, is important – even if you do not plan to hold onto your pieces forever. Individuals have their jewelry appraised for a number of reasons including:
· insurance policies for replacement in case of damage, loss, or theft
· estate tax valuations
· value comparisons
No matter the reason you plan to have your treasured jewelry appraised, we provide comprehensive, current appraisals, using a sharp eye for detail. Both fashion trends and the market price of precious metals change frequently. Due to this ever-changing marketplace, we recommend clients have their jewelry appraised once every three to five years to ensure current values, especially for insurance replacement purposes.
