Get Your Jewellery Appraised At Bateman Jewellers, a Trusted Saskatoon Jewellery Store

Bateman Jewellers are Trusted Saskatoon jewellery experts! Did you know that they are the oldest independent jewellery store in Saskatoon?  Bateman Jewellers maintain that the relationship with their clients is very important to them. In their latest Saskatoon jewellery tip, they discuss the details of jewellery appraisals. 


What is an appraisal?

An appraisal is a professional opinion of the authenticity, quality, design and approximate value of a piece of property. An appraisal must be typewritten in concise, objective and internationally recognised terminology, accompanied with a photo.

Why Appraise Jewellery?

Most people require appraisals for obtaining insurance but other reasons may include - a division of property upon death or divorce, as proof of ownership when travelling, to use as collateral or for resale.

Where to Find an Appraiser

There is no licensing body which requires jewellery appraisers to attain a minimum level of education/experience before practising. Until legislation is passed to protect the public from those who are unqualified, the burden is on consumers to investigate a company's reputation and question its appraiser's competency. Our Appraiser(s) have a minimum of 25 years of experience and are G.I.A. certified.

How Much Will it Cost?

Fees vary among qualified appraisers. Professional-level fees usually indicate a high degree of education and experience as well as state-of-the-art lab facilities. Since no one professional can be an expert on everything, occasionally your appraiser may consult with others who specialize in a particular field. Be prepared to allow extra time and cost. See our Price list to give you a guide to our pricing. It is always best for us to see the piece first to give you an accurate price quote.
