What is a certified Jewelry Appraiser?

A certified jewelry appraiser is one who is in the business of estimating the worth or value and quality of jewelry pieces that include rings, bracelets, earrings, watches, cufflinks, brooches, pendants, etc. A certified appraiser delivers unbiased insight and valuation conclusions, and is often the only independent party in a subject engagement, whether it is a transaction, litigation dispute, strategic planning decision, etc. Because it is up to the consumer to ultimately select and hire a qualified appraiser, a question that often arises in selecting an appraiser is - how do I assess the quality, capability and suitability of an appraiser for my specific need?
