(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

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
