Northern Appraisal Services - Appraisal Worthington, OH

YOUR INDEPENDENT JEWELRY APPRAISER

Insurance appraisals:

Northern Appraisal prepares written appraisals that meet all insurance companies’ underwriting requirements. Unbiased appraisals are based on replacement cost of the item in the appropriate market for which it would likely to be replaced by the insurance company.

With vague descriptions and a marked up appraisal, the consumer is the one who is at risk: with high premiums and lower quality replacement merchandise. Northern Appraisal Services prepares insurance appraisals with extreme detail to help replace the piece with a replacement that is as close to the original as possible.  

When you lose a piece of jewelry, you not only lose something of value but something sentimental. Nothing can replace the sentiment but the piece can be replaced. To insure your jewelry, you will need some kind of documentation of proof of ownership with an assessed value for appropriate replacement.
