This portal will assist the appraisal students in navigating their professional pathways. “Although the existing website provides the actual link to the Appraisal Studies Course material, we wanted to offer students more than just access.” said Finleon. “Now, we are able to deliver even more timely updates, share relevant news and articles, and – going forward – link to continuing education to assist the appraiser in providing excellent products and service.”

An appraiser is a skilled professional with expertise in the subject matter being appraised as well as thorough training in valuation science and experience with the marketplace for the item in question. This also entails training in appraisal methodology, market research, ethics and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) compliance or report writing.

The National Association of Jewelry Appraisers is the largest membership association specializing exclusively in gem and jewelry appraising and related issues. NAJA offers education and networking opportunities with knowledgeable appraisal professionals.
