Welamond Appraisal

 

What is an Appraisal?

An appraisal (also known as a Jewelry Valuation) is a document that states how much a piece of jewelry is worth. The appraisal describes the jewelry item stating diamond quantities and weight, the color and clarity of the diamonds (which can be given as a range, for example, H-J color, SI1/SI2 clarity etc. or as accurate values according to the gemological certificate of a diamond), the weight and type of metal the jewelry is made from and any other gemstones details.
