It is a written statement independently prepared by a qualified appraiser, setting forth an opinion of the defined value of an item on a specific date and supported by the presentation and analysis of relative market information. Remember, an item of jewelry has many different values depending on why you are having it appraised. Obtain insurance in order to be protected in case of loss or damage.
