Whilst most valuation schedules are prepared for insurance replacement purposes, they can also be prepared for probate, divorce/family settlement and private sale. All our valuation schedules are presented in a quality bound folder and include digital images of your jewellery, full description and appropriate value.
Your jewellery will be inspected and, if necessary, cleaned before being digitally photographed and expertly appraised; all relevant details are recorded such as:
The assessed colour and clarity of diamonds, dimensions and weight
Certificate/report details of certificated diamonds
Gemstone type, quality, dimensions and weight
Hallmarks and any other identifying marks
Mode of manufacture and setting style
We will also advise you of any repairs needed to keep your jewellery in tip-top condition. A glossary of terms used in the schedule can be found at the back of your report to enable you to fully understand your document. We also supply you with an ‘Insurers Summary’ for you to submit to your insurance company.
A valuation supplied by a member of the Jewellery Valuers Association ensures that, if in the event of a loss or theft, you have all the information needed to help provide proof of ownership if the item is recovered, or to assist your claim if it isn’t. We also offer a Post-Loss Assessment Service to help with your claim in the event of a loss or theft.
Current Market conditions and rising metal costs mean that even relatively recent valuation schedules, carried out within the last two or three years, may now be inadequate. To give yourself peace of mind, and to ensure you are not under-insured, it is now the time to have your jewellery valued professionally.
Although most appointments are carried out during normal working hours we can also arrange out-of-hours and weekend appointments, contact us to discuss your requirements.
