Whether we review your favorite seed pearl brooch or those Victorian earrings, A.A. Benjamin provides both written and verbal appraisals of antique and modern jewelry.
Appraisals allow you to discover the value of your grandmother’s engagement ring or your great-uncle’s gold cufflinks. If you have inherited jewelry, it is important to determine the value of the estate pieces. If you need to file an estate inventory, a formal appraisal will help determine the value of the estate. Should you choose to sell the jewelry, you can then fairly divide the proceeds among heirs. You may also have your jewelry appraised for insurance purposes. Such appraisals typically reflect the retail replacement cost in today’s market.
We prefer to take the appraisal details while you watch and send you a formal report upon the completion of our research. We offer the services of GIA graduate gemologist and an accredited appraiser of the International Society of Appraisers (ISA).
