JEWELRY APPRAISAL FOR INSURANCE
Appraisals help you protect your precious jewelry by helping you insure is for its proper value. GIA certified, our Graduate Gemologist can help you with all of your jewelry appraisal needs.
Established in 1931, the Gemological Institute of America is the world's foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls. A nonprofit institute, GIA exists to protect all purchasers of gemstones, by providing the education, laboratory services, research and instruments needed to accurately and objectively determine gemstone quality.
With strands of pearls, dirt and grease eventualy gets in between the pearls and attacks the material upon which they are threaded. As the thread weakens, the more chance there is of it snapping. Eventually, the thread will look discoloured and tired.
As a guideline, if you wear your pearls weekly or more often, you are probably going to need to re-string once every couple of years. If you are wearing your pearls once a month or less, then re-stringing every three or four years will usually suffice.
