Types of Jewelry Appraisals
Only those specifically referred to on this page are described here
Further types will be mentioned on the Appraisers' profile pages as there are several other types of appraisal reports, each with its own particular wording, purpose, objectives and resulting values.
Insurance Replacement (routinely requested) - Replacement value appraisals are intended to be used for scheduled insurance coverage of jewelry and watches. The descriptions are usually the most detailed of any appraisal type and include the quality and condition of the item as well as the cut, color, clarity and carat weight (calculated or estimated) of gemstones and diamonds. When appropriate, the age or historical provenance may also be considered as value elements. Depending on the specifics of the item being appraised, the replacement value may be based on the analysis of sales for similar ‘new’ items of like kind and quality or sales of ‘used’ (vintage) items of comparable kind, quality and utility.
You may have to look outside the Manchester area if you require a very specialized service that may be outwith the scope of a normal gem and jewelry appraisal, or if you require a jewelry expert or Gemologist to travel to another country. Appraisal services such a jeweler's stock audit, Capital Gains assessments and certain types of evaluation for investigations by the IRS or FBI are handled by specialists on JAW but you may need to broaden your search.
