Independence Matters.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1505608916149{padding-bottom: 35px !important;}”]An independent jewellery appraisal is an unbiased opinion by a qualified professional who is not directly involved in the ownership of the jewellery item. This unbiased opinion describes the detailed identity, composition, qualities and values of a jewellery item in an appraisal document – the official report of the appraisal – using recognized terminology and grading systems.[/vc_column_text][ult_buttons btn_title=”Questions?

What is an Appraisal?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1524743987795{padding-bottom: 35px !important;}”]“Appraising a piece of jewellery essentially means determining its value at that point in time. A professional appraiser must first be able to identify the item correctly, and then evaluate its quality accordingly. They must also be able to convey their findings in a written report, justify their process, and abide by a professional code of ethics.

Very often, the role of a gemmologist is confused with that of an appraiser, as gems have become synonymous with high value. When consulting a gemmologist, many consumers expect to find out the values of their stones. However, while gemmology and jewellery appraisal are complementary disciplines, they are two distinct specialties.”  – Canadian Jewellery Association[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1505607627589{padding-bottom: 24px !important;}”]
