APPRAISALS

What is an appraisal and why do I need one?

 

An appraisal is an estimation and description of something’s worth for insurance purposes, carried out by a professional appraiser. Based on the appraisers research and expertise, he or she is able to state the value of property based on all the qualitative and quantitative attributes of the piece. In the event that a precious piece of jewelry is lost, stolen, or damaged you will know the value of what has been damaged or what has to be replaced.

 

As an engagement ring holds precious sentimental value, it is important to get it appraised as soon a possible. Here at The Engagement Ring Studio, we provide a complimentary appraisal from an FGA, GIA Certified Gemologist with 35 years experience in the industry free with every ring you purchase from our studio.

 

What will you get with your appraisal?

 

Our appraiser provides a gem grading report for the center diamond, and a complete description of the ring, gold weight, and total diamond weight.
