    I don’t nkow if you need it appraised for sizing, but since you want to wear it, I would have it appraised and then insured so that you can wear it with less stress… just in case.

    If it’s seriously solid platinum then yes I would definitely have it appraised. It looks like it would be quite valuable!

    @Westwood:  if she is going to get it appraised in this case, it would prob make more sense to do it after she gets it sized, though, since they’ll be taking some of the links off

    Please get it appraised.

    I know it’s a pain to do, and maybe doesn’t feel necessary, but I’m dealng with the fallout from the situation that occurs when you decide to get it appraised once the jeweler has worked on it. 

    Get it appraised and insured, then have it sized.

    Also, that’s a gorgeous bracelet!

    GORGEOUS Bracelet…

    You are one lucky girl to have their INCREDIBLE Family Heirloom

    I 100% agree with @franklyn: get it appraised first.  Then put some insurance on it to the appropriate level… and then have it worked on.

    This process will protect you if something should happen to it while it is at the Jeweller’s

    You can have EVERYTHING then appraised somewhere down the road after the work (Bracelet & Earrings) and make any necessary adjustments to the Insurance Policy.

    Hope this helps,

    PS… YOu are going to look BEAUTIFUL on your Wedding Day !!
