Information for you

Jewellery Appraisals should be updated every 2-3 years. Talk to KC Appraisals about being informed when your appraisal is due for renewal
KC Appraisals does not sell Insurance nor is it affiliated with any Jewellery Retailer except in the capacity of Appraising.
When buying insurance, make sure you ask questions, just as you would for your house and car. Do you know what your deductible is? Do you know what is covered, without extra premiums added for your jewellery, under your house insurance?
Know why you need your jewellery appraised-as different functions require different appraisal value approaches.

Please remember that an Appraisal is an "informed Professional Opinion" and therefore there may be some variations between appraisals.
