What is a jewelry appraisal?

A jewelry appraisal is the process of assigning monetary value to a piece of jewelry by a certified professional for a specific purpose, such as tax, insurance, or reselling. You’ll receive a clear explanation process and the measurements used along with a signed statement of value from an expert appraiser with your jewelry appraisal. Our GIA-trained experts make sure to appraise your jewelry for the full retail price.

When should you get a jewelry appraisal?

Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange recommends a jewelry appraisal at least every two years. Because the prices of gold, silver, diamonds, and other gemstones fluctuate, be sure you have your jewelry valued accurately. Additionally, there are many events in which you should get your jewelry appraised, such as if you:

  • Plan to re-sell your jewelry
  • Switch insurance companies
  • Modify a piece (such as a new setting) and change its value
  • Give or bequeath the piece(s)
  • Put the piece(s) into a trust or will
  • Need to show ownership to your insurance company

How long does a jewelry appraisal take?

It depends on how many items you need appraised and their complexity. On average, an appraisal takes about 30 minutes so you can shop around or relax in our store while you wait. If you’d like to leave your pieces with us during the appraisal, you can rest assured knowing your jewelry is secure and protected.

There are plenty of reasons to get your jewelry appraised and zero reasons not to. That’s why Dallas Gold & Silver offers jewelry appraisals at our Dallas location on Preston Road. Bring your beloved items for an appraisal to ensure their value today. You’ll thank yourself tomorrow!
