Simply Unique has partnered up with Chevalier and Marks Fine Jewelry Appraisals for all your jewelry appraisal needs. Deborah Chevalier is a licensed appraiser and has over 20 years of experience. It takes about 3-5 days for a piece to be appraised. The amount of time can vary based on when the piece is left with us. Pieces that are picked up on Tuesday are returned on Friday or picked up Friday and returned on Tuesday. An appraisal includes a full typed description, a replacement dollar amount with a few years built in, a cover letter that describes the equipment used to appraise, and an extra copy for your insurance company with color pictures. A Simply Unique team member will call you once the appraisal is complete. If you have any questions about the appraisal process, please feel free to give us a call.
