MJ Christensen Diamonds can provide you with a detailed appraisal report performed by an American Gem Society Certified Gemological Appraiser and Gemological Institute of America Graduate Gemologist.
If you own a piece of jewelry that you wish to insure or pass on to a loved one, but don’t know how much it is worth, MJ Christensen appraises jewelry to determine the current value.
We will examine the jewelry for authenticity, age, rarity, and condition to come up with an accurate value for your unique piece. Bring in one or several items and we can offer a detailed appraisal report performed by an American Gem Society Certified Gemological Appraiser and Gemological Institute of America Graduate Gemologist.
While these items are priceless to you, it's important to remember that the value of the precious metal and gems that comprise your fine jewelry is constantly changing due to market conditions. Gold, for instance, has seen its value double over the past 10 years.
Accurate appraisals are important because if your jewelry is ever lost, stolen or damaged, your insurance company will refer to the appraisal document to settle the claim. An outdated appraisal will likely result in you being under-insured, and that could cost you thousands.
We recommend updating your appraisals every three to five years. Whether it's an engagement ring you wear every day or a piece you've just inherited from your grandmother's estate, we're ready to offer an appraisal for your security and peace of mind.
