@sjhanddab2014:  I am going to get my ring appraised for insurance purposes and the place I am taking it is charging me $110. 

I dont know if this is a good price or the norm, but thats what I am paying

i think it was $50 to get my ring appraised when we had it done. i know that the cost is different at every store you go to. i also had it cleaned and re-dipped when it was appraised, which brought the cost up to $75 for the appraisal, cleaning, and dip.

The GIA gemologist at my local jeweler charged $150 to appraise my first piece then $75 for each additional he did for us.
