It is important that your jewellery is adequately insured. We recommend that jewellery is valued for insurance purposes every five years or so. Diamond jewellery should be valued every three years. Fluctuations in the value of precious metals, diamonds and gemstones are often influenced by world events as well as supply and demand. Any increases (or decreases), therefore, are not usually linked to any economic price index. Items that require a valuation are fully inspected and assessed, with all stone settings checked. A written valuation with full item description is prepared. Valuations can be obtained for both modern and antique jewellery. Our independent valuer collects and returns pieces usually within a few days.
We are able to offer ‘Estimates for Replacement’ which can be presented to your insurance company should you be in a situation which necessitates a claim.
