Each piece is thoroughly evaluated based on quality, style, craftsmanship, condition, and physical materials. We also suggest you conduct your own research on your piece beforehand to get a good idea on the value. Some factors to look into are:
- Type of materials: type of gemstones, gemstone cut, type of metals, etc.
- Condition: is it scuffed, damaged, or in pristine condition?
- History: where it’s from, how old it is, etc.
- One-of-a-kind: Uniqueness of the piece, or characteristics that are rare
- Demand: Is the piece high in demand? Is the piece following a current trend?
All this research on the jewelry’s history will help determine its value more precisely. The more knowledge you have on your piece will help smoothly guide you through the professional appraisal process.
