Everything in your jewelry box has a special meaning. Maybe your jewelry reminds you of a memory, a person or a sentimental feeling. While some are worn daily, others might get stored away for years. No matter the case, it’s important to know the value of your pieces. At MJ Christensen, we specialize in providing an accurate appraisal of your collections.

What’s a Jewelry Appraisal?

Receiving jewelry appraisals is a fast and easy way to uncover the true value of your old, new or recently acquired pieces. Thanks to the expertise of our AGS Certified Gemological Appraisers and GIA Graduate Gemologists, we provide accurate evaluations. Once the assessment is finished, you’ll receive a detailed report that outlines the exact worth of each piece.

Why Is It Important?

An appraisal can cover you in a variety of situations. First, the prices of gold, silver, platinum and diamonds are always fluctuating. In general, costs increase and having an updated appraisal can protect you against loss of value due to the ever changing markets. Additionally, if your jewelry is ever stolen, your appraisal will detail the exact value and protect you during an insurance claim. Lastly, appraisals provide documentation stating the exact value of your pieces, if you ever decide to sell them in the future.
