Free Jewelry Appraisals
A jewelry appraisal is a document stating the approximate retail value of the item. The value is calculated using the up to date market data and reflects typical retail prices based on gemstones weight, quality, precious metal quality, weight and the craftsmanship of the item.
At ItsHot.com, the renowned NYC jewelry manufacturer and retailer every diamond jewelry item sold for $500 to $1,500 will come with a certificate of authenticity stating the metal as well as approximate carat weight, quality of diamonds and the appraised value of the item, in most cases it is sufficient to be used for insurances purposes. Jewelry items sold for $1,500 and above will come with a free appraisal certificate from an independent gemological laboratory. These appraisals are extremely important documents graded by the GIA certified gemologists and based on a multitude of specification categories such as metal weight, metal purity, diamond count, diamond clarity and diamond color. These details clarify the exactness of an item. Especially in regards to insuring your precious pieces of diamond jewelry, the more detailed the appraisal the better and you are more likely to receive a correct replacement item or the proper amount of money to purchase in the event of loss or theft. As precious metal and gemstone prices can fluctuate dramatically, these specifics will insure that you will not receive less than the current price to replace your beloved jewelry items.
International customers please note: since appraisal reports show values higher than the price actually paid and customs sometimes check the contents of the packages, to avoid problems with customs appraisal reports will NOT be included with your items. Instead you will be emailed the report in pdf or jpg format, or provided a link to download and view/print your appraisal report (you can still use it for insurance purposes). You can also order a physical copy of the actual report if needed and receive it separately from your order.
