Appraisals & Quotes

Troy Shoppe Jewellers in Calgary, AB offers many services including appraisals. Insurance companies often require a current appraisal before they can insure your jewellery. Depending on your insurance provider, you will need to update this information every five to ten years as prices fluctuate. A thorough appraisal contains information about all aspects of the piece of jewellery. This includes the metal the item is made from such as karat of gold or purity of platinum. It will state the gram weight of the item. If there are gemstones set in the item it will detail the number of gemstones, the cut, colour, and clarity. There will also be a picture of the item on the appraisal. Learn more about the appraisals Calgary trusts!

Probate Appraisals

We also offer probate valuations in the event of an inheritance or liquidation of jewellery. It is important to note that the probate value of a piece of jewellery is very different from the insurance value. Probate is defined as the amount the jewellery would sell for in an open market to a willing buyer. Often the value is the intrinsic metal value and the value of the gemstones at wholesale value. You will need probate appraisals if you are the executor of an estate. A probate appraisal will detail all the elements of the item of jewellery however, the value given will be the probate value.

Who Does the Appraisals?

All appraisals are completed by a third party to maintain an unbiased valuation using a Gemological Institute alumni with over ten years of experience.
