Understanding the Division of 
Fine Art and Jewelry in Divorce

The value of fine art, jewelry, and family heirlooms can be significant, both financially and emotionally. In a Texas divorce, assets owned by a spouse before marriage are typically considered separate property. However, when assets such as fine art and jewelry increase in value during the marriage, the increased value may be subject to division during divorce proceedings, even if the asset itself remains separate.

Community Property and Asset Valuation

Fine art or jewelry acquired or gifted during a marriage is considered community property, belonging to both spouses and subject to division during divorce proceedings. Determining the value of these assets may be necessary if their value has increased since the original purchase date. 

In such cases, hiring an appraiser to evaluate the assets might be essential before proceeding with the division. Selling the artwork or jewelry and splitting the profits may be a straightforward solution, but it's not always possible, especially when dealing with a carefully curated collection.

Prenuptial Agreements and Legal Support

Couples can avoid the complexities of dividing fine art and jewelry in a divorce by signing a prenuptial agreement before marriage. If no prenuptial agreement is in place and you find yourself facing this situation, Rose Sanders Law Firm is here to help. We care about our clients and their financial well-being.
