What people are saying…
“I am pleased to say that the ring arrived today.
I am really so pleased with the finished item. The quality of the engraving is superb the attention to detail fantastic. I will not hesitate to recommend you wholeheartedly, and look forward to using you again in the future.”
We are one of the leading firms of jewellery valuers in the East Midlands.
We have two valuers, both of whom are National Association of Goldsmiths (NAG) Registered Valuers. This means that they have met the stringent standards set by the industry leaders and are recognised as the elite of the profession. One of our valuers is also a qualified Gemmologist (FGA).
We use the most advanced valuation software, including high quality digital imaging to make identification easy. With valuations accepted by insurance companies, there are no arguments in the event of a claim.
Unfortunately we are not able to do valuations from photographs, but do have to examine the pieces directly, in order to assess condition, study marks, establish weights and measurements, evaluate any stones, etc. For clients who are not local, we can provide the service by post, which involves using Royal Mail Special Delivery (insured) to send the pieces to us and for their return. In some cases, where there is a large volume of high value pieces, we can come to you, with our ‘mobile valuation kit’.
We also provide “post-loss” assessments. This means we can define the replacement value of jewellery that has already been stolen, based on detailed discussions to form a picture of what the pieces were like.
Valuations are charged on a sliding scale based on the total value, as per The Guild of Valuers & Jewellers recommended price guide. The minimum charge is £44.00.
