No appointment is needed for jewelry appraisals. We clean the item thoroughly and then start the appraisal process with a trained eye. We evaluate each stone and apply the appropriate values and estimates of replacement.
Once we appraise your jewelry, we offer free updates for the life of the piece. Updates may be needed if you change insurance companies, pass your jewelry down to a family member, or simply need an updated value. We also offer special pricing on appraising multiple pieces. There is no fee for appraising pieces purchased at J.F. Kruse Jewelers. Click here to see an example of an Appraisal.
The amount of the appraisal depends on the type, number and size of the diamonds and gemstones, as well as the intricacy of the piece.
Our certified gemologists complete all of our insurance and estate appraisals in house. After cleaning and inspecting your jewelry, we spend hours evaluating and grading it to ensure that your appraisal is both thorough and accurate. If you prefer, you may watch our gemologists appraise your jewelry and ask any questions you may have.
