SALVAGE-PROGRAMArtigem’s salvage jewelry program researches the current diamond, metal, and finished jewelry markets to find comparable items to each salvage item. This process provides the most accurate payout for policyholder claims. 


  • All salvage items are sent to the Artigem laboratory for high resolution photographs and precise documentation by GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certified gemologists.
  • Artigem researches current diamond market pricing to establish the salvage value of an item, consistent with current salvage industry pricing.
  • All salvage photos, notes, and claim information are accessible through an adjuster login online for reference at any time, including item comparables.
