David S. Diamonds Policies and Services
We recommend insuring your precious jewelry. You can add jewelry coverage to an existing renter’s or homeowner’s policy. Just be sure that if you should have a claim, there would be a cash settlement or the freedom to replace your diamond at any jeweler of your choice. We find that many policies offer to replace your diamond through their jewelers. These often result in the claimant receiving diamonds that are inferior in brilliance and performance.
Any purchases over $500 will receive a complimentary insurance appraisal document, which will be enclosed in your shipment. Simply provide copies of the gemological reports and the insurance appraisal to your insurance company to secure coverage.
David S. Diamonds Appraisal
The purpose of an appraisal is for your insurance company. The appraisal document is issued by David S. Diamonds and contains a detailed description of the jewelry purchase, such as the cut, color, clarity, carat weight of a diamond, and a valuation of the jewelry piece. The document is appraised by one of our certified gemologists and calculated based on the market value. The appraisal value represents the replacement value that your insurance company will provide you in case of loss, theft, or damage.
