Get an up-to-date appraisal!

We understand how valuable your jewelry is to you. Each piece has a sentimental value, but it also has a monetary value, which is why it's important to ensure you have an up-to-date appraisal. If the unthinkable would ever happen and you'd lose your jewelry, we want to be able to help replace the monetary value, even if we cannot replace the sentimental value.

In order to ensure your jewelry is safe, an up-to-date appraisal is vitally important.

Whether you need an appraisal for insurance purposes, are looking to pass on a piece to a family member, or simply want to know its value, there are many reasons to get an appraisal done. We recommend updating your appraisals every three to five years to ensure an accurate reflection of your jewelry's value.  

If you purchased your piece several years ago or have never gotten an appraisal on it, it's important to get one. The price of precious metals and gemstones fluctuates and your piece could be worth much more now than when you originally purchased it.

At Vanscoy, Maurer & Bash Diamond Jewelers in Lancaster, PA, we offer complimentary appraisals at the time of purchase. However, if you did not purchase your piece from us or need an updated appraisal, our services start at $100 per piece. Prices will vary based on the intricacy of the piece. Please reach out with any questions or to make an appointment for an appraisal!

We also regularly host appraisal events, where you can sit down with our certified gemologist as he appraises your piece. He'll go over all the details with you and make sure you're well informed about the value of your piece of jewelry.
