Insurance & Appraisals

The Appraisal Process

Have you ever wanted to insure a piece of jewelry or wondered what your jewelry is worth? When was the last time you had an expert appraise a family heirloom? If you are not staying on top of the value of your pieces, you may be not be properly insured or protected in the event of loss, theft, damage or mysterious disappearance.

At John Atencio, we offer a full range of Appraisal services to give you both the peace of mind and a full understanding of the value of each piece of jewelry in your collection.

For your convenience, we can have your piece appraised at the time you are having your piece inspected, sized, refurbished or even having a stone set. You are also welcome to bring your piece into one of our John Atencio boutiques and meet with our appraiser, ask questions and understand what the appraiser is identifying during your time together.

Our appraisers are fully accredited and leverage years of experience, industry knowledge and the latest technology to ensure an accurate valuation and appraisal for your jewelry. At John Atencio, our focus is on Excellence and providing you with the most accurate appraisal of your piece.

When the appraisal process is complete, we will provide you with the full documentation you need to stay current with the valuation and the details necessary to identify your piece should it ever be lost or stolen. This appraisal document meets all insurance guidelines and can be directly used to update your jewelry insurance.
