Many thanks for taking the time to read this compact jewelry article entitled 'How to Value your Jewelry at Home or Work'. You are about to discover the intricacies and formulas that highly qualified Gemologists and Valuers are using, right now, to evaluate and appraise gold, silver and platinum jewelry. copyright verywen.com

But before we begin, I would simply like to bring you 'up to speed' on what will be required. As you know, the art of valuing jewelry takes many years to learn (over five years before you can graduate) and then it takes several more years to gain the necessary experience to 'get it right'. 内容来自美文网

Gemologists don't all become Valuers because of this high level of study, which doesn't include the expense of Microscopes and Refractometers and Dichroscopes and and and.... 内容来自美文网

In this program we don't even want to explain what these pieces of equipment are because firstly; they are too expensive (you can pay thousands of dollars just for a binocular microscope) and secondly because you are not a trained jeweler, and probably don't want to be. copyright verywen.com

So don't let that put you off because we are NOT trying to turn you into professionals overnight. That would be wrong of us to even try. copyright verywen.com

We don't want the Jargon either. Just some simple facts. What we are going to achieve is nothing more than a simple understanding of what you need to know, to at least get a 'Slippery Grip' of basic terms. The hardest part is NOT the testing or algorithms involved but mainly the correct and systematic identification of what your are trying to value. The calculations are nothing more than a natural outcome, which just proves what can be accomplished using the most simple school mathematics. If you can multiply and divide, and add money, you can do this course. 美文网

We assume you are trying to get a 'Ball Park' figure on something you own, or want to own, or sell, or insure. Which brings us to the first question. verywen.com

What exactly is a Valuation or Appraisal?

www.verywen.com

All of the calculations and procedures done throughout this series of articles are built into our 'Online Jewelry Valuation Self Appraisal Kit' which does all the work for you. Why? So you don't have to. Simple...

You can go to the Valuation Appraisal Centre, to discover how easy it is to value your own jewelry at home or work (The address is listed at the bottom of this article) and discover why we use it ourselves.

This is an important yet sadly overlooked concept.

verywen.com

People, just like you, simply want to 'Know what it's Worth' but that's a very subjective statement. For example: copyright verywen.com

What's it worth to you?

www.verywen.com

Does it have sentimental value?

verywen.com

If it does, there is no way we can measure or calculate for that. It's a personal thing. copyright verywen.com

What's it worth on EBay? 内容来自美文网

That depends if you are a Buyer or a Seller. At the end of the day the value lies in what two people agree upon. 本文来自美文网

What's it worth if you bought it from your neighbor?

内容来自美文网

What's it worth to them or what's it worth to you? www.verywen.com

These are two different things. 美文网

What's it worth when your local Jewelry Store has a 50% Off Sale?
Are you really buying a bargain or is it just another ploy to get your money. 内容来自美文网

What's it worth if it's stolen? copyright verywen.com

Does this value represent the true figure? 美文网

If you were 'Fagin' in Oliver Twist, what was it worth to him? www.verywen.com

Bet Fagin had a different price in mind when he traded with the Artful Dodger.

But what if you were the jewelry owner. What's it worth then?
The Insurance company might have a different view to you. After all, they want to replace it as cheaply as possible, while you want it valued as high as you can. You pay the premium for the privilege, of course, but it still remains very loose. www.verywen.com

Tip: A 'Valuation or Appraisal' is generally accepted as a price based on Insurance assessment. ALL other valuations flow from this one rate. verywen.com

So the answer lies in some form of accepted standard which must be based on sound principles, backed by REPEATABLE formulas which can be expected to be 'around the same figure' no matter where you go in the world. 内容来自美文网

And thankfully, it is. Gold is Gold is gold... right? copyright verywen.com

The calculations used (behind the scene so you never need to see them) in our 'Online Jewelry Valuation Self Appraisal Kit' knows from your answers to multiple choice questions, exactly 'What's it worth'. Easy eh? verywen.com

Go to the Valuation Appraisal Centre to uncover the secrets of just how stress-free it is to value your own jewelry at home or work (The address is listed at the bottom of this article) and let the 'Kit' do it for you. 本文来自美文网

Like humans, not all gold is created equally. 美文网

Thankfully. A lot will depend on what part of the world you come from and certainly can dramatically change the value of any jewelry item. copyright verywen.com

You may have wondered about that VERY yellow gold which comes from the Middle East or Asia. Is it the same as the gold on Sixth Avenue or Hatton Garden in old London Town? 本文来自美文网

Why is it that jewelers talk about CARAT weight in diamonds and gemstones, but also use the term CARAT when it comes to the quality of gold. Are they the same thing? 内容来自美文网

We will certainly be looking into that term in an upcoming issue. 内容来自美文网

You see, when it comes to Gold (this does not apply in quite the same magnitude for Silver or Platinum items) because it comes in more than one color and more than one quality. 美文网

You have the typical yellow gold, a green gold, the ever popular white gold which is currently making a bit of a comeback, and the sought after 'Rose gold,' fashionable in Victorian and Vintage Jewelry. 本文来自美文网

Each of these will have a different price structure when it comes to appraising your jewelry. Nothing dramatic, but a difference anyway. 本文来自美文网

Yet the bottom line could add several hundreds of dollars to a Bracelet or ring, so you will need to know 'How to' spot these distinctions in metal. copyright verywen.com

So how do you do it? By using the best tools a Valuer can possess (your eyes) while employing the greatest skills you can learn (how to measure things). Once you have these handy little methods in your arsenal, the rest is just a matter of arithmetic. verywen.com

So watch out for your next issue of this mini-course, where we'll reveal the single most important consideration when it comes to valuing ANY jewelry. www.verywen.com

David Foard is retired ("Ha..." he laughs). He is working harder now than at any time in his life, especially over the 30 years he spent in the Antique Jewelry Trade as a qualified gemologist and member of the Valuers Council. Now he concentrates on the three 'R's of 'Reading' Ritin' and re-ritin articles, courses and producing a free monthly newsletter at his website. 本文来自美文网
