The Precious Gem urges you to review the insurance policies on your jewelry. Against the background of a rapidly changing global economy, there's a very good chance that you are under-insured and that you may need new jewelry appraisals for your most valuable pieces. The Precious Gem's Master Goldsmith and Jewelry Designer Reggie Akdogan recommends that jewelry appraisals be updated at least every five years. Keep in mind, says Reggie, that an appraisal represents the replacement cost to you of an item in the event it is stolen, lost or damaged.

The Precious Gem has professional and fully certified appraisers on staff to update your appraisals. Our appraisers are certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).

Obtaining an accurate, timely and, most importantly, a certified appraisal from a qualified professional is important when dealing with an insurance company.  The Precious Gem applies the most exacting standards in appraising your jewelry.  Your written appraisal will describe the item in explicit detail and document its dimensions, weight and style.  

Appraisals from The Precious Gem have played a major role in helping our clients to win their claims against lost and damaged jewelry.

The Precious Gem is also prepared to appraise antique and vintage jewelry, imported gems and precious metals to include gold, silver and platinum.

Please call us to make an appointment for an appraisal at The Precious Gem in Williamsburg (757) 220-1115.
