The Appraisal Process
Mesh Appraisal Services will clean and inspect your jewelry before it is appraised. I will check your item for any need repairs. A digital photograph will be taken of each item and will be included in your appraisal. Your jewelry never leaves your sight.
A thorough and detailed description of your jewelry item will be documented. Diamonds and colored gemstones will be measured for weight, graded for color, clarity, and cut and any important characteristics will be noted.
A detailed description of the mounting, manufacturing method, and metal content will be noted as well as any other important information. I do request that if you currently have a diamond grading report from a laboratory (GIA, AGS, EGL, IGI, GSL, etc) that you bring it with you so that we may verify the information on the report. I will, however, perform our own analysis first and then present our findings to you.
I will document the retail replacement value if your appraisal is for insurance purposes.
I am pleased to answer any questions you may have regarding your jewelry during your appointment. My goal is to educate the consumer and will explain any jewelry-related topic in easy-to-understand terms.
In most cases, a PDF report will be created and emailed immediately for you to examine. However, occasionally, extra time is needed to research values, and a report will be emailed to you at a later date.
Professional appraisers charge for their services based upon an hourly rate or a per-item fee, never by a percentage of the appraised value.
Mesh Appraisal Services’ current fee for insurance and estate jewelry appraisals starts at a nominal fee of $80 to $125 per item and is based on the complexity of the item. Of course, elaborate items containing many stones will take longer than average and plain gold items will take less.
For your convenience, your jewelry appraisal will be active in my database for five years. The time required for re-appraising your jewelry, and thus your costs, will be greatly reduced if you have the jewelry re-appraised during that five-year period.
