Jewellery Valuations

Why get your jewellery valued?

Find out your jewellery's worth by having it assessed and valued by our independent registered valuer Tom Ward. Insure your most treasured pieces of jewellery to protect them in the event that they are lost or stolen. Decide whether to keep your item or sell on.

The most common reason to get your jewellery valued is to find out its worth. Our valuation service is available to customers who have individual pieces of jewellery, or a collection of pieces to be valued.

In the case of insurance purposes, we can provide an accurate value for your items that you can use when making a claim in the event that they are lost or stolen. This is particularly useful if you are travelling abroad and don't want to risk losing valuable pieces on holiday.

An accurate valuation can also be used for probate purposes; this will help ensure that your estate is distributed correctly upon death and reduce the time it takes for loved ones to receive their inheritance.

Whatever your reasons for wanting to get your jewellery valued, knowing how much it’s worth is important as this will help you to decide if you want to keep hold of it or not, as well as helping you to make sure that you’re not being overcharged when buying new pieces.

Our Jewellery Valuation service

We offer a comprehensive jewellery valuation service. Discounts are available if you're one of our customers and 10% discount applies to re-valuing items within 5 years.

  • Postal jewellery valuations: Should you require your valuation (of any type) to be completed on a quick turnaround basis and not during one of our scheduled valuation days, a £15 postage fee applies (within our normal insurance parameters).
  • Home visits: If you have a large number of items and/or are unable to bring them into the store we can arrange for a home valuation of your items. With your permission, we will pass your contact details to our registered valuer to arrange this directly.
  • Non-standard items: The above charges are for the standard item(s) of jewellery or watches. Occasionally some items may require certification or specialist additional research or individual insurance and if so an estimate/quotation may need to be given prior to booking.

Prices are £120 for the first item and £60 per subsequent item. However, some exceptions apply.

What you'll get

A full written report with photographs

We provide a full written report with photographs, stating the value and a detailed description of each item. This is prepared on our official valuation form. This service also includes an appraisal certificate for insurance purposes, which will be sent to you for your records.

Ability to insure your jewellery

If you are making a claim on your insurance policy, you will need to show that the item was valued at a certain amount and have proof of ownership. This valuation can be used as evidence of the value of the item and is therefore very useful for helping you get the most money in return for your jewellery if it is lost or damaged.

Have fun!

Jewellery valuation is a fun process to be a part of. You'll have the opportunity to learn some interesting facts about your most treasured items.
