Why do you need a jewelry appraiser?

Congratulations!  You’re engaged and need your diamond ring appraised for insurance purposes. A family member has died requiring a full fair market estate appraisal for the IRS. You have a jewelry collection and would like to sell it. You’re in the midst of a divorce and a jewelry valuation is essential. You want to make a donation of jewelry to your favorite charity. A fair market value appraisal is necessary along with the completed IRS forms. Perhaps you have jewelry that needs to be split among family members how do they choose? Some of your jewelry is damaged, is it worth it to have it repaired?
