Most insurance companies require an appraisal before they will insure jewelry beyond a certain dollar amount. Value is determined by research of various retail outlets. Value used is retail replacement, defined as replacement with an ‘identical or comparable’ piece of jewelry.

“I spent the first 14 years working for jewelry stores around Florida including Miami, Tallahassee and Fort Myers. I have worked in many areas of the jewelry business including sales and custom design.
My company is one of the only companies in the area doing appraisals only (no buying or selling) from Punta Gorda to Naples since 1995. I have worked with jewelry stores, lawyers, banks and estate planners throughout our community and beyond.”
