replacement in case of loss. Appraisals are 

generally performed on items valued in 

excess of $500, or items that have unusual 

sentimental value, and are also valuable for when you choose to sell, trade or bequeath 

your jewelry.

approaches to value-market: research of 

sales of comparable jewelry, the cost of 

making a reproduction or a replica of the 

jewelry, and in rare cases, an estimate of the 

income producing potential of the jewelry.
