ENSURE ITS PROTECTION BY THE INSURANCE COMPANY
Making an inventory of your jewellery with photographs, descriptions and valuations guarantees it and helps prove its pre-existence. It can also help adjust your insurance premium by providing an appraisal for the appropriate policy.
In case of death or divorce, appraising your jewellery will make it easier to carry out a fairer and more equitable distribution of your assets.
YOUR JEWELLERY’S PROFITABILITY
If you would like to sell a piece, irrespective of the buyer, appraising it will ensure that you know its current price and thereby obtain the maximum profit.
It is also useful for administrative, tax and/or legal purposes, for collateral or guarantees with your banking institution, or for requesting loans using the piece of jewellery as a guarantee.
KNOW ITS AUTHENTICITY AND CURRENT VALUE
It ensures that you know its authenticity and characteristics.
The value of jewellery varies over time, so getting it appraised will ensure that you know its current value.
