Your Independent Jewelry Appraiser
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.
Jewelers can sometimes prepare vague documentation as a record of the purchase or a receipt of the sale. However, vague descriptions do not protect the consumer. In the case of a loss, insurance companies usually opt to replace your jewelry through a replacement company and pay wholesale prices to recreate your precious jewelry.
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.
