Insurance Appraisals


If your jewelry was lost or stolen could you describe it? Appraisals serve several very important purposes. First and foremost, insurance companies require them when you add a jewelry rider to your policy. A picture included in the appraisal can be used for identification or reproduction of your most precious jewelry. Don't rely on your memory. The appraisals offered by G&H Jewelers and Gemologists are professionally completed by a gemologist who has graduated from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and a valuation expert with over 30 years of experience. Bring your family heirloom, your Rolex watch or that incredibly sentimental diamond engagement ring to G&H Jewelers and Gemologists for a beautifully clear Digital Photo Appraisal. Appraising jewelry is an extraordinarily complex procedure. Don’t entrust your jewelry to anyone shy of an expert.
