Retail Replacement Valuation
The most common type of appraisal needed is the retail replacement valuation. Retail Replacement Appraisals are essential to sell your jewelry to another individual or online. Fast-Fix Jewelry and Watch Repair can provide a comprehensive appraisal that accurately represents your item’s value, making the selling process smoother and more transparent.
An accurate appraisal will include specific details such as metal content, weight, color, clarity, the carat weight of diamonds, and precise identification of gemstones. Additionally, it will feature detailed professional photographs of the item. This level of detail is crucial to ensuring that your insurance company replaces your items as closely as possible.
In most cases, the replacement item should be an exact replica, crafted using the same materials and construction techniques as the original. An item signed and authenticated has only one replacement source: the original signed source. If the item is irreplaceable, we will determine its current retail market value based on a comparable item.
We recommend having all your jewelry and valuables fully and accurately appraised every 3-5 years to maintain their coverage. Our jewelry appraisal service is comprehensive and tailored to meet your specific needs.
On the other hand, an estate appraisal is explicitly generated for probating an estate. During these challenging times, you can trust our expert appraisers to thoroughly examine your items and create a detailed report tailored to your needs.
