Initial Assessment: The appraiser will examine your jewelry to determine its quality, authenticity, and any damage. They will also note down the weight, measurements, and other relevant details.
Gemstone and Metal Analysis: The appraiser will use specialized equipment, such as a loupe or microscope, to examine the quality and characteristics of the gemstones and metals. They may also use chemical tests to determine the composition of the metals.
Grading: The appraiser will grade the quality of the stones using a standardized grading system, such as the 4Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat weight) for diamonds.
Valuation: Based on the information gathered during the appraisal, the appraiser will determine the value of your jewelry. They may use several methods, such as market analysis, historical research, or replacement cost analysis.
Report: Finally, the appraiser will provide you with a detailed report that includes all the information about your jewelry, such as the quality of the stones and metals, weight, and any relevant historical or cultural significance. The report will also include the appraised value of your jewelry and any necessary documentation
