Jewelry and Gold Appraisal Services
We offer confidential written expert gold and jewelry appraisals for individuals, banks, attorneys, estates, trusts and government institutions. We are qualified jewelry appraisers for the IRS and government institutions. A jewelry and gold appraisal can be stated at fair market value or for insurance purposes and can be performed in the comfort of your home or at our Emeryville, CA offices. Fees for a gold appraisal are available on request.
Types of Appraisals
Fair Market Value:
A fair market value appraisal establishes the value of a gold or jewelry collection or individual item in the current marketplace. A gold appraisal may be used for settling estate probate or for other instances where the current market value of a collection needs to be determined. Please note that this is not a guaranteed price that you may receive when a collection is sold, but an indicator of the value in the market presently.
Keep in mind that the method of how a collection is marketed and sold will affect the ultimate price you may receive. Although this type of jewelry appraisal is stated at fair market value, you may receive more or less than the appraised value when it is liquidated.
Fair market value appraisals are performed on a fee basis. This type of appraisal is not required to sell your jewelry collection.
Replacement Vale for Insurance Purposes:
Insurance appraisals are performed to establish the cost for the replacement of all or part of a collection in the event of theft, damage or any other loss. In other words, what it would cost to go into the current market and easily replace the material. Under these circumstances, replacing all or part of a collection will most likely be at current retail prices. In many instances, insurance appraisals are obtained prior to a loss to establish the value of a collection for an insurance carrier. If your property is insured and you sustained a loss, you will most likely need an insurance appraisal.
If you are seeking to sell a collection, we offer complimentary evaluations by appointment. In most cases, a formal appraisal is not necessary to determine the value of your property. Call or email us to discuss your collection and set an appointment with our coin appraisers.
