ACCREDITED JEWELRY APPRAISERS, LLC Your Diamond Jewelry & Gem Appraiser Of Choice In The D.C. Metro Area!
Jewelry appraisals are done for a variety of reasons. By far the most common is for the purpose of insurance replacement, the key word being replacement.. Contrary to popular belief, no insurance company is just going to cut a check based solely on the appraised value of a lost, stolen, or damaged jewelry item. That is not the way a replacement policy works. In the event of a loss the policy holder is entitled to replacement (there’s that word again) with like, kind and quality, so in order to be compensated adequately the description given in the appraisal report is paramount! Of course, the value needs to be supported by the description as well and should reflect the current retail market. Too high and one is just overpaying on insurance premiums. Too low (also referred to upside down) and the money received based on the appraised value will not cover the cost of replacement.

Accredited Jewelry Appraisers
I had a great experience at Accredited Jewelry Appraisers. I needed to get my engagement ring appraised for my insurance so I literally Googled ring appraisers and this company popped up. The reviews were spot on! Jeff Allinson did a very thorough review of my ring and he also provided me with a VERY VERY detailed and professional write up that you could submit to my insurance company. I had questions about the appraisal process and Jeff took the time to go through the steps and answer all of the questions that I had. You can tell that Jeff really likes what he does and he knows his stuff when it comes to jewelry!! He also cleaned my engagement ring BETTER than any other jewelry store has done for me in the past!
My experience with Accredited Jewelry Appraisers was awesome! Jeff was able to fit me in last-minute for a Saturday appointment which was critical since I needed to obtain an updated appraisal for my insurance company within the week. He took the time to explain the process thoroughly to me and my husband for my most prized possession - my engagement ring. I swore I would never leave my ring with anyone alone for ANY period of time but, unfortunately, this was necessary for the appraisal. However, Jeff took extra care to make me feel comfortable. The end result was a professional, detailed report for my insurance company in a couple of hours. I highly recommend Accredited Jewelry Appraisers to anyone looking for a kind, professional, knowledgeable and thorough jewelry appraiser. I will certainly be back for my future appraisal needs.
Jeff Allinson gets five stars in my book! Came in with a custom ring I built for my now-fiancee, and Jeff did an extremely thorough appraisal. He even cleaned and wrapped the ring for me after we went through the details of the appraisal. He was super helpful in managing my time restraints (I had to sneak around a bit to find time when my fiancee wouldn't catch on to what I was doing), and runs one of the most friendly businesses I've come across. While searching for an adequate business, I ran into a lot of people who just wanted your money and then booted you out the door. Not Jeff. He actually cared about your investment, and was even interested in our story, and was genuinely happy to have a small part in it. For top of the line service, go see Jeff in McLean!!
