Appraisals

With today’s rapidly changing precious metal and gemstone markets, it is more important than ever to keep your appraisals up to date. To protect your investment in the event of a jewelry loss, you must be sure that your appraisals and insurance coverage adequately reflect today’s market value. Bring your fine jewelry and watches to Scott Reising Jewelers in Hyde Park for new appraisals and/or updates.

All appraisals are done by a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America. This service includes a thorough cleaning and inspection in addition to a complete description and photograph of each item appraised. The normal procedure is to bring your items to our establishment at which time we will provide a receipt of the items being left for appraisal purposes. 

Our fee for this service in $160.00 per hour with a one hour minimum. The total expenditure will depend on the number of items being appraised and the complexity of the assessment. As soon as the appraisal is completed, we will contact you and provide two copies of the above mentioned written documentation; one for your own records and one for insurance purposes.
