Many fine jewellery owners donâ€™t take the time to get their items appraised regularly, and this mistake can cost them more than just money when their jewellery is misplaced, stolen, or damaged.
One of the biggest mistakes a fine jewellery owner can make is waiting until the last minute to get their jewellery pieces appraised. After all, optimism doesnâ€™t do much for a misplaced or stolen engagement ring.
For jewellery retailers like Damiani Jewellers, educating customers on the value of appraisals and insurance claims is almost as important as making the sale itself.
â€śThis is especially important for appraisal appointments, where an expert examines your jewellery item and reports the current dollar value for your piece for future reference,â€ť says Michelle Moreal, the communications coordinator at Damiani Jewellers. â€śThis information helps with any insurance claims you may file in the future. Having a letter of evaluation with you will allow your jeweller to replace a lost, stolen, or damaged gemstone or jewellery piece with another one of similar quality.â€ť
The appraisal process is simple, Moreal explains. Once a customer makes an appraisal appointment at Damiani Jewellers, they bring in their pieces to the retailer for a one-on-one meeting. After the appraiser examines the items and takes pictures of them, the client receives a letter of evaluation detailing the current replacement value of each piece.
This document also serves as proof of ownership in case a jewellery item is stolen, misplaced, or damaged. It also streamlines the whole process between the jeweller and the insurance company, and ultimately for the customers themselves.
Another general rule of thumb is to get an appraisal done by a trusted, certified jewellery or timepiece professional every two years. Along with the jewellery specialists they have on staff, Damiani Jewellers also employs a GIA-certified gemologist and two Rolex-certified watch technicians to assist customers with appraisals and insurance claims.
