Why Appraisal?
• To secure insurance - theft/disappearance and damage coverage

• To assess value - confirms the value of a new purchase with an unbiased and ethical third-party source

• For divorce - fair market value for equitable division of property mandated by divorce code

• For estates - fair market evaluation for resale or evaluation for equitable dispersal of inherited items in probate
    • For peace of mind and for accurate recording of the history and stories surrounding the piece

    • For future identification when later repairs take place - guards against stone replacement and provides a baseline for comparison of change from original condition
