One of the best ways to protect your fine jewelry is with an updated appraisal. I consistently see jewelry with appraisals that are 10, 15, even 20 years old. If you suffer a loss with such old documentation it will be difficult to fully replace your lost or stolen items. Your difficulty will stem from the fact that gem and precious metal prices have dramatically increased over the years.  In the past five years the price of a high quality 1.00CT round diamond has gone up 25%. Fine quality 1.00CT round rubies and blue sapphires have shot up around 40%. In that same five year span the price of gold has moved up about 65%.

If you have any jewelry that needs reappraising please bring it in. I will be more than happy to do new appraisals to make sure your precious possessions are fully covered. There is no charge for jewelry that was purchased at Spiegel and Son. This will also give me a chance to look over your jewelry and see if it needs any repairs. It is always a great idea to inspect the prongs that are holding your beautiful gems. I will also polish, clean, and steam your jewelry to make it sparkle like new. Please stop in to receive the service you deserve, the service you have come to expect from Spiegel and Son.BR106-new_2
