Many people neglect to have their jewelry pieces appraised. However, knowing an accurate and current valuation for jewelry is super important for a number of reasons including:
insurance policies in case of damage, loss, or theft
estate tax valuations
out of plain curiosity
No matter the reason you plan to have your treasured jewelry appraised, Bay Area Diamond Company can provide you with a comprehensive, current appraisal. We recommend clients have their jewelry appraised every 3-5 years to have the most up-to-date value of their precious pieces.
Complimentary appraisals are included with all Bay Area Diamond Company diamond jewelry purchases. Brian Rouse (store owner) has his certificate in Diamonds and Diamond Grading from GIA. He is qualified to identify and classify diamonds by cut, color, clarity, and carat weights. Brian personally handles most diamond appraisals for Bay Area Diamond Company.
