In Store Appraisal event
Drop off before 5pm Nov. 19 or Nov. 21 by appointment only
Need to know what your jewelry is worth or need it appraised for insurance?
If your jewelry is currently uninsured or has not had updated appraisals in the last 5 years, you are in need of an appraisal to keep your valuables protected! Our appraisals give you a clear, independent 3rd party evaluation and are important in order to insure your jewelry in the event of loss or theft. Expert appraiser Joel Hassler; GIA GG, ICGA (AGS) of Von Hasle Jewelry Advisers will be visiting Harris Jeweler!
Here’s how it works:
Bring your jewelry into Harris Jeweler anytime between now and 5pm Saturday, November 19. During your drop-off visit, you’ll consult with a Harris Jeweler team member. We'll walk you through the process and answer any questions you might have. This consultation is free and allows us time for a FREE cleaning and inspection of your jewelry. If you choose to move forward with an appraisal, fees typically run $130/piece.
You can also make an appointment with our Independent appraiser on November 19 for a while-you-wait appraisal (same-day appointments REQUIRED to be made at least 24 hours in advance and are limited until 2pm). These appointments aren’t necessary for early drop-off, but if you’d like to meet with our expert appraiser and ask any questions, feel free to reserve a spot on November 21!
Your jewelry never leaves the store, so you can pick it up at your earliest convenience anytime after 10am on November 22.
