Anyone can hang out a sign as a jeweler or an appraiser.
There are no federal or state regulatory agencies that attest to the qualifications of someone doing business as a jeweler or as an appraiser.
We advocate getting an appraisal from someone trained to insurance industry appraisal standards, which can maximize the potential for properly insuring your valuables.
Here at Rick’s we are very familiar with these standards and write your appraisals at replacement values, not ridiculously high retail values resulting in higher insurance premiums.
