Frequently Asked Questions

question
Why should I get a jewelry appraisal?

Watch or jewelry appraisals are more than just a measure of how much your jewelry is worth. It’s also a key step in getting your valuables covered under a jewelry insurance policy. Most insurance providers require an appraisal in order to manage any eventual claim.

Fine jewelry often appreciates and getting a reappraisal can be key to ensuring your item’s fair market value is fully covered by insurance

question
How much does an appraisal valuation cost?

If you need your item inspected in-person, we will connect you with a local jeweler.  The price will depend on your location and the complexity of the piece

If you qualify for a BriteCo online appraisal valuation, the cost is only $24 and will allow you to get certified jewelry appraisals from the convenience of your own home.

question
What if I have more than one piece?

No problem! You can select up to 3 items for an online jewelry appraisal valuation at once. Additional items qualify for a 50% discount.

You will receive a unique, custom appraisal valuation for each piece. You will pay $24 for the first appraisal and $12 for each additional appraisal.

Starting your appraisal is simple. Fill out the questionnaire and in less than 5 minutes you will answer a few questions about your piece, provide documentation, and schedule an appointment with our expert appraiser at your convenience.

Once scheduled, you will join a video-conferencing session with one of our appraiser partners to verify your items, collect any additional information needed and issue your appraisal valuation.

question
What info is included in an appraisal?

BriteCo Online Appraisals include verifiable and measurable characteristics of the piece of jewelry. Typically, it will include things such as gemstone grades, diamond grades, diamond color, diamond clarity, type of precious metals, jewelry styles, and other important facts. Appraisals for fine jewelry are done subjectively and can vary from appraiser to appraiser depending on specific grading and assessment.

question
When would my item need to be inspected in person?

Without proper documentation, any online appraisal is a random guess at best. Other online appraisal companies will still give you it virtually. This is a disservice to you. If needed, we will connect you to our extensive network of highly qualified jewelers who can evaluate your item so that you know the true value.
