Appraisals to Benefit the Fight Against Cancer
Jewelry Appraisals for a Cause- Midtown Jeweler Maurice Badler Helping American Cancer Society Fund Cancer Research
You probably already know that Maurice Badler Fine Jewelry is your source for contemporary designer jewelry with a unique bridal collection. But did you know you can get your fine jewelry appraised, and help the fight against cancer at the same time?
Many insurance companies insist that you update your insurance appraisals every three to five years. It is a good idea to make sure your coverage is up to date and to get your jewelry items inspected for damage. Appraisal fees vary from place to place. The most prevalent charge is a 1.5% of the appraised value with a minimum of $75-$100 per item. Others charge a straight cost per hour, or even a cost per carat for large diamonds.
Jeffrey Badler, owner of Maurice Badler Fine Jewelry sees it differently. “Appraising jewelry is certainly a professional task requiring skill and significant training. But at Maurice Badler we want to do our part to help the fight against cancer,” said Jeffrey. “Use any of the “standard” appraisal fee guidelines you wish, and write a check payable to the American Cancer Society in lieu of a fee.”
His firm has been doing this for more than 40 years, a tradition started by his parents Maurice and Betty Badler. The next time you need your jewelry appraised, whether for estate, insurance or any other purpose, call and make an appointment to see Jeffrey Badler, who will personally assist you.
“It feels great to be a part of the crusade. We will do whatever we can to help.”
