Your Trusted Jeweler
We’ll Appraise Your Jewelry
At M. Pope & Co. we are committed to protecting your valuables by providing fair, accurate and detailed appraisals on your jewelry items. Every piece of jewelry valued over $2,000 that is purchased from M. Pope & Co. comes with a complimentary insurance appraisal. We also appraise jewelry not purchased from M. Pope & Co. Our services range from simple insurance appraisals to complex estate and settlement appraisals. Please call us or email us for more information and to set up an appraisal appointment. Appraising your jewelry can be a useful, and most often necessary, part of life. Appraisals are always required for distribution of estates amongst heirs, dissolutions of marriage, sales and post-loss assessments. We strongly recommend scheduling the pieces on your homeowner’s insurance and renter’s insurance or with Jewelers Mutual Insurance and updating the appraisals every 5 years to keep pace with current market values.
WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH A JEWELRY APPRAISAL?
Your Appraisal Includes: Detailed descriptions of your pieces, photographs, diagrams and diamond plots that give you a full understanding of what you own. Most importantly, it will protect you fully in the event of a loss.
We adhere to the standards put forth by the American Gem Society, American Society of Appraisers and the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers.
