Appraisal Services and Pricing

Standard Insurance Appraisal – $95

A Standard Insurance Appraisal on a single jewelry item includes:

Verbal Appraisal - $35

A Verbal Appraisal consists of all the same information encompassed in a Standard Insurance Appraisal just without the printed documentation.

If an item is deemed to be a non-standard item due to the complexity of the appraisal process, the pricing for the appraisal is subject to change. The exact cost for a non-standard appraisal will be given to the customer prior to the beginning of the appraisal process.

Estate Appraisals - $145/ hour.

Estate Appraisals consist of all the same information, images, printed documentation, and copies as you would receive in a Standard Insurance Appraisal but is billed by the hour for estates requiring greater than 2 hours of time to complete.
