THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF APPRAISALS
A standard appraisal, meant for your insurance company, is valued at the amount that it would cost to replace your item if it should come up lost or stolen within five years from the time of the appraisal. This amount includes the labor and parts and will take custom or rare items that would be more difficult to replace, into consideration when coming up with a total value.
An estate appraisal is meant for someone who is interested in reselling their jewelry to a second party. In this case, several factors are considered. The age and condition of the piece along with the current demand for such items will all take part before coming up with a final market or fair cash value you that you should receive if you were to sell. This price is usually much lower than a replacement appraisal since selling costs and labor and design are not considered.
