When you purchase an item from deBebians.com over $1,000, we will provide you with a written appraisal by one of our staff GIA graduate gemologists. This appraisal will give a detailed description of your item. Everything from a detailed description to a photograph of your item to the current retail replacement value will be listed on the appraisal. This is what you will need in order to have your piece of jewelry insured. Please note that if you make a purchase under $1,000, you can request for us to do an appraisal on your item at no cost.
Here is a sample appraisal for you to see:
Note how we break down the information as much as possible to give you detailed information on your item. Total carat weight, color, clarity, side diamond information, metal etc are all listed. If you choose to insure your item, your insurance company will ask for this document as it provides the current retail replacement value.
Things to keep in mind:
- Keep this appraisal in a safe place
- Have the appraisal updated every few years
