info iconTypes 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.

Divorce (rarely requested) - this type of appraisal is used to help divide the tangible assets of a marital estate. The type of value provided in the appraisal report will typically be determined by specific State statutes, by agreement between the parties or by the trier of fact (the Court). Commonly requested types of value include fair market value, liquidation value, replacement value and/or marketable cash value. The level of detail provided may also be a matter of agreement or decree.

Equitable Division / Distribution (occasionally requested) - Used to divide an estate among its heirs in an impartial and financially fair manner. Several different types of value could be requested by the estate administrator depending on what the heirs have agreed to or the specific needs of the estate. In general, the level of detail provided in the report is sufficient to identify the property being appraised and highlight the primary characteristics on which the value was based. Fair market value, market value, liquidation value and marketable cash value are some of the more common types of value requested by estate administrators.

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 Beverly Hills 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.
