Insurance & Appraisals
Our appraisal process begins with a detailed take in procedure where we document the specifics and the estimated value for all pieces included in the request. If the diamonds do not have a serial number established our team will fingerprint the larger stones so our clients can rest easy that their diamond will be the same stone returned upon pick up. The fingerprint documentation will remain on file with Merkley Kendrick for future work, emergencies, or a need for immediate verification.
Once the appraisal is complete, we will walk our client through the details of the assessment and then provide written documentation for their records.
The length of time for an appraisal will vary based on the pieces involved in the project and the intricacy of the stones. We will be able to provide you with an estimate once we discuss the project.
Our gemologists are GIA Certified Gemologists, Certified Gemologist Appraiser, and Jewelry Insurance Appraisal Institute Certified Insurance Appraiser. In addition to these certifications and north of 30 years of appraisal experience, our team is prepared to help you with your appraisal needs.
