Professional-grade pictures & videos for better appraisals

Professional appraisers are already taking photos during the appraisal process. Without a doubt, clear and detailed high-resolution jewelry photos can capture special hallmarks, reduce the incidence of fraud, protect the owners in the event they must file an insurance claim, and facilitate a replacement. Unfortunately, too many jewelry appraisers - or jewelry industry professionals who do appraisals - are taking subpar photos or lacking the appropriate amount of photos to fully support appraisal documentation.


Introducing video technology into the appraisal world

To help support jewelry appraisers, Picup Media and Instappraise have made it easy for their users to capture studio-quality photos and 360-degree videos and attach them to their appraisals, which can both enhance a comprehensive digital jewelry appraisal and improve the overall customer experience. The result is ultimately a more professional, reliable, and credible appraisal while offering a more interactive experience to the customer.

This comprehensive solution returns control and peace of mind to customers through Instappraise's Customer Portal: appraisers and retail jewelers can create login information for their customers, so they have the freedom to access their appraisal reports, photos and videos - even while they're on the go.
