Appraisals are essential for safeguarding your valuable items, and protecting your assets if an unfortunate event occurs and your pieces are lost, stolen, or damaged. At National Estate Jewelers, our professional appraisers will evaluate the retail replacement value of your items and issue an appraisal for you to send to your insurance company.If you already have an insurance appraisal, it is wise to have your jewelry, watches, coins, artwork, and collectibles re-evaluated every few years to accommodate changes in markets.
We also offer appraisals for Equitable Distribution and Estate Planning, Liquidation and Fair Market Value that can be submitted to your lawyer. In-store appointments, house calls and bank appointments are available; please call and speak with one of our staff members for more information.
If an unfortunate event should occur and some of your insured jewelry is lost, stolen, or damaged, trust National Estate Jewelers to help recreate or repair your treasured possessions. We’ll work closely with you, your insurance company and our large network of suppliers and jewelry designers to make sure you’re fully satisfied with your replacement. Call today for a private consultation.
