How long does it take, and why is it so expensive?
Below are three rings, all different, to give you an sample of why
it is almost impossible to give an accurate quote over the phone. Think
of it as calling up your auto mechanic and saying there is a noise coming
from the engine compartment, how much will it be to fix? There are so
many variables that it makes it almost impossible to guess, without seeing.
Further, an appraisal is a legal document. The preparation, knowledge,
and equipment is provided to give you the best appraisal possible for
your situation. If all you are looking for is cheep, why are you insuring
the piece of jewelry? The appraisal is there to protect you. Without
a through evaluation of the piece, you are left with a guess, and any
price is too much for that.
