Common Jewelry Appraisal Terms

A jewelry appraiser estimates the value of gemstones and gold, silver, and antique jewelry. If you are looking to buy, sell, or insure a piece of jewelry, you may need the skills of a qualified appraiser. Below are a few terms to be familiar with when you are using the services of an expert in jewelry appraisal.

  • Carat – A measurement used to describe the purity of gold and the size of gemstones and pearls. Pure gold is labeled 24-carat. Often, gold that is less than 24-carats is mixed with silver. With gemstones and pearls, a carat is a unit of mass equal to 200 milligrams.
  • Cut – A term that refers to the shape into which a gemstone has been cut for use in jewelry. With diamonds, cut refers to the styling of the stone including symmetry, proportions, and polish. The cut of a diamond impacts its brilliance and its value.
  • Clarity – The internal and surface traits of a diamond, including any cracks, foreign particles, or other structural imperfections. Flaws can make a stone appear cloudy, lowering its clarity and decreasing its value.
  • Color – An important evaluation criteria in the appraisal of diamonds that refers to hue of a stone. A pure diamond is clear, but natural diamonds, like those found in antique jewelry, often have a slight tint to them that can add to or detract from their value.
  • Synthetic Gems – Gemstones created in a laboratory that have the same properties as their natural equivalents. During an appraisal, it will quickly be determined whether a stone is natural or synthetic.
