Unbiased Independent Appraisals

IGI is independent of all commercial sellers and sales organizations and is not engaged in buying, selling, or trading diamonds, gemstones, or jewelry. This neutrality permits IGI to provide unbiased, accurate appraisals, appraisal-updates, and identification reports. Our appraisers are accredited by the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and continue their education by attending courses and conferences each year.

Appraisal values are based on real-time surveillance of price structures in use throughout the market, supported by national and international wholesale conditions and cost data. Value forecasts and market diversity are also considered, in the interest of long-term consumer protection.

IGI offers appraisals for insurance coverage, estate tax, equitable distribution, marketable cash, and financial auditing purposes.

Report Types

Appraisal Reports

Fully describes the gem or jewelry article and its calculated retail replacement value. The report includes a color photo and, for diamonds 0.95 ct and above, a clarity plot.

Designer Appraisal Report

Co-branded with your store or brand’s logo, this report was developed for quality-minded designers who would like to be identified as the provider on insurance documentation.

Summation of Appraisal

IGI’s Summation of Appraisal (SOA) is available in several formats. The credit card size format fits perfectly into IGI’s jewelry box for an elegant, thorough presentation.
