What is an Appraisal: An appraisal is an opinion of value for a particular item in a particular market on a particular date. It is usually in a document format describing all qualitative and quantitative attributes necessary to arrive at the value conclusion.
At Jewelry Yankton, SD we can appraise all kinds of jewelry, GIA diamonds, gemstones, sterling flatware, watches and more. If you haven’t had your jewelry appraised in the past 5 years, she does recommend you have it documented in detail today.
Take a look at some tips on getting appraisals and when one is needed.
Provide your appraiser with copies of any documentation you have relative to the item being appraised. Those items may include the original receipt and/or previous appraisals.
Verify with your insurance company how often they require an appraisal. This will ensure that your insurance will remain valid throughout the years.
Don’t be tempted by online companies that offer free or cheap appraisals. Online appraisals are only good for real property items that can be certified through photographs or receipts and descriptions. Any item such as fine jewelry, requiring certification or testing to prove identity or authenticity, cannot and should not be appraised online.

Pearl/Bead Stringing

Correct pearl and bead stringing is an art form. Pearl and gemstone bead jewelry is strung on fine silk threads that are knotted between each pearl/bead. This not only keeps the pearls from rubbing against each other, it also prevents scattering should the thread break.
At Jewelry Yankton, SD, Terri recommends having your pearl or gemstone beaded jewelry restrung every 3 to 5 years. This regular maintenance allows your jewelry to stay strong and stable so that you can enjoy it for a lifetime.
