Jewelry Appraisals & Evaluations in Colorado Springs
Are you curious to know the value of a piece of jewelry that has been in your family for generations? Did you recently find or purchase a piece that you think might be worth something? Regardless, our jewelry appraisal experts can identify its value and help you understand what you have.
At Revolution Jewelry Works, we offer appraisal and evaluations for a variety of pieces. Whether you need a ring appraisal, necklace appraisal, bracelet appraisal, or another kind of jewelry appraisal, our experts can tell you its value and give you more basic information about the piece.
Appraisals, also called jewelry evaluations, are estimated of values formulated by an expert using testable and traceable methods to reach their evaluation. Our experienced appraisal professionals will inspect your jewelry closely, testing, grading, measuring, and photographing it in addition to doing some research in order to confidently arrive at an evaluation. This process can take some time, and you may need to leave your jewelry with us so we can do the necessary testing and be thorough.
Common reasons why jewelry is appraised
Satisfying your curiosity isn’t the only reason you should consider our jewelry appraisal services. People who plan on selling their jewelry will often get a professional appraisal beforehand, so they know how to price their pieces. Jewelry appraisals are also commonly appraised for insurance reasons. Appraisals help insurance companies set coverage limits on the policies they offer and ensure that, should a piece ever be lost or damaged, you can have the piece replaced or repaired. This is why many people choose to get a wedding ring appraisal, as this is one of the most important and expensive pieces of jewelry they own, and they likely have insurance on it. Jewelry is also commonly appraised in the event of a divorce, estate sale or distribution, or charitable donation.
