(PRESS RELEASE) Instappraise, developer of an innovative and easy-to-use jewelry appraisal creation and management solution, announces a partnership with Picup Media, provider of jewelry photo retouching and maker of the GemLightbox jewelry photography tool.

Professional-grade pictures and videos for better appraisals

Professional appraisers are already taking photos during the appraisal process. 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 number 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.

Thanks to this partnership, jewelry industry professionals will be able to benefit from two productivity tools at once, gaining one comprehensive, powerhouse solution! Not only can users conduct fast, powerful, flexible, and precise appraisals thanks to Instappraise’s cloud-based platform, but they’ll also be able to upload studio-quality, detailed, white-background photos and videos with just one click, thanks to GemLightbox’s 360° capability. Users will benefit from increased productivity when creating appraisals and be able to offer their customers a secure access to their appraisal documents from any device, anytime, from anywhere.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
