Valuations

Are you looking for an honest valuation of your jewellery for insurance purposes or for probate? Do you need a valuation for a private sale or are you simply interested in the value of a particular item of jewellery?

Your jewellery valuation will be carried out by a qualified in-store expert.

During your visit, an independent registered valuer will assess your jewellery. The valuer will then provide you with a professional valuation – often sent to you at a later date – and can also answer any questions you may have about the jewellery.

Valuations are all about trust. As proud member of the National Association of Jewellers we offer a complete portfolio of Valuations services:
