DIVIDING JEWELRY

Appraisals to help families divide jewelry:

For many families dividing jewelry equally among beneficiaries is important, whether this is accomplished during your life or through estate planning documents. To obtain relative equality, the value of any item of personal property should be stated in its cash equivalent terms. In this way, it does not matter how many items are given to one person over another, as long as the total cash value given to each person is similar. Just as you would never use cash value to insure the item, you would likewise never use the insurance value to distribute the item.

With more than 42 years of experience working in the secondhand jewelry market, Tom Tivol is an expert at determining the appropriate cash value of jewelry. He approaches each valuation by determining the most common market for the resale of the item in its condition, identifying the buyer of that item and determining what the buyer should pay.
