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 10 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 the purity of platinum. It
will also 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. 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 of America alumni with over 10 years of experience. It takes three to five
business days to appraise your item. We will also clean the jewellery. If you would like a less
formal probate appraisal you may pay a small fee and meet with the owner of Troy Shoppe
Jewellers, David Blitt, who will be able to give you a verbal appraisal of the value of your items.
