nursegurnett:  We asked a jewler for an appraiser they recommened.  I took the ring to him, and sat there while he appraised it (30 min in all).  He sent me the actual appraisal paperwork later that night so I could send it off to the insurance company.  I want to say the appraisal was $150, plus $75 for the diamond maping.  Considering I didn’t purchase my ring (it is an heirloom), and the diamond is a decent size, it was money WELL spent in my opinion.  

The appraiser was GIA certified, so I’d google for ones in your area.

I went to a local jeweler who had to send mine to someone who was GIA certified. I waited a week and paid $75 for all the specs and mapping of the rings. I also brought a pendant. I ended up insuring all of my jewelry with Jewelers Mutual. I had called State Farm first since I have existing policies with them, and they were $100 more for the year. I was surprised.

I had my ring appraised at an independent jeweler that did some custom work on it for me. I think they only charged like $75 for it (since the diamond wasn’t purchased from them). I agree with PPs, just ask the jeweler that you use most if they recommend any good certified appraisers or if they are willing to appraise it themselves. Some jewelers won’t do appraisals on stones not purchased from them but some will. It’s worth asling about.
