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. For an expanded list of valuation types, go to the Appraisal Definitions page.
Liquidation (commonly requested) - an appraisal provided to assist the client in the relatively rapid sale of their jewelry or watches may take the form of an appraisal report or a restricted report. It may be presented in either written or verbal format and as with other types of resale valuations the level of detail included and the type of value(s) requested are the client’s choice.
Fair Market Value (occasionally requested) - This type of value is most commonly defined by law, regulation or a local jurisdiction. In general there is no presumption that a sale will occur within a specific time in the future but rather the assumption that the sale had occurred as of the valuation date. The broad, generic definition is: ‘The price at which the jewelry would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or sell, and both having reasonable knowledge of relevant facts’.
