Time to Have Your Jewelry Appraised? Stop in at Tobin Jewelers

As we all have seen the value of jewelry increase in the past few years (especially gold), you may want to think about having your jewelry appraised or reappraised if you haven’t had it appraised in the past two years. Having your jewelry appraised can certainly give you the peace of mind that if anything should happen to your jewelry, you’ll know its present value and your items can be properly insured. Why have your jewelry appraised in the first place? To begin with, if you purchased your piece from Tobin Jeweler’s there’s never an appraisal fee. If you purchased your piece somewhere else, we have a nominal one time investment of just $75 and this covers appraisals for the lifetime of the piece. Here are a few reasons you should have your jewelry appraised.

  • Peace of mind so you know the present value of your jewelry.
  • Prices have been fluctuating greatly over the past few years, especially gold.
  • Typically, jewelry pieces that are worth over a certain amount may need a special rider on your homeowners or renters insurance policy in order to be covered for its full value. You’ll need a proper appraisal for this.
