Jewelry Appraisal

Bella Cosa Jewelers offers on-site insurance and estate appraisals. Our GIA trained experts will give you a written appraisal so you can insure your jewelry for its full value. Upon request, any item purchased from Bella Cosa Jewelers will receive a free jewelry appraisal and free value updates at no additional charge.

Why do I need to have my jewelry appraised?

We recommend getting jewelry appraised so you can insure your jewelry for its full value. An official appraisal is necessary for insurance.  Should you damage or lose your jewelry, the last thing you need to worry about is how to repair or replace. Having your jewelry insured will provide peace of mind.

How long does it take to get jewelry appraised?

For diamond appraisals, if it is brought in by 11 am, the appraisal will be done by 6 pm the same day; if it is brought in by 2 pm, it will be done by 4 pm the next business day. For other items, we will need to see the piece to give a timeframe. We will work with your schedule to make it convenient for you.

What is included in a proper professional jewelry appraisal report?

Bella Cosa Jewelers will systematically examine the articles and determine the value based on the gems, metals, or other materials, as well as the method and quality of the article’s construction. A proper appraisal report includes the following components:

    1. Description of the article
    2. High-resolution photographs of the article
    3. An estimated replacement value of the article
    4. Your information, appraiser’s signature, and date

When should appraisals be updated?

We recommend having your jewelry re-appraised every 2-3 years.

How much does jewelry appraisal cost?

Jewelry appraisal cost depends on the complexity of the jewelry. Typically the price ranges from $70 to $150.
