How much is design considered in an appraisal?
The cost to reproduce a piece of jewelry is very important in issuing an appraisal. Custom design is becoming more popular, especially for couples wanting unique bridal jewelry. The expense for setting stones is much higher for one-of-a-kind items in the United States than it is for mass produced items from overseas. All of these considerations, including costs for custom casting or hand making a piece of jewelry, are included in an appraisal by AIGR.
