Appraisals

The purpose of a jewelry appraisal is to put a dollar value on the jewelry being appraised, often for insurance purposes. Whether you just inherited a family heirloom or are changing insurance providers, it's a smart idea to have a real replacement value on your jewelry.

Why you should choose Chalmers Jewelers for your appraisal needs.

  • A jewelry appraisal can be done on any item of jewelry, regardless of what it is composed of.
  • Market values change, so Chalmers Jewelers recommends that you have your jewelry appraised every three to five years.
  • Upon request Chalmers Jewelers will update your appraisal for free, for as long as you own the piece.
  • Chalmers Jewelers performs all appraisals on site in our lab. Our staff GIA Graduate Gemologist performs this thorough assessment.

Chalmers Jewelers can also add a diamond measurement report and digital photography to your appraisal for a nominal fee.
