Appraisals: Why do we need them?

Appraisals: Why do we need them?

Be prepared as life can happen at anytime…loss, theft, damage or a mysterious disappearance, make sure your most cherished jewelry pieces are protected.


Basics you should know:

    • Is your jewelry covered under a "blanket" Homeowners Policy?
    • If so, what is the limit and will it cover the cost of replacing the item(s)?
    • If not, you will need to list or "schedule" individual items
    • The schedule would include a detailed description of each item and the appraised value.  
    • In many instances, a current appraisal conducted within the past two years may be required. 
    • Your premium is based on the total amount of your scheduled items
