As part of its services,, provides Valuation(s) for precious articles, would they be jewellery or watches. When we purchase a valuable item from a jeweller, we need to insure it and to do so the till receipt is usually sufficient. Occasionally a post-sale valuation is necessary. We can help in these instances or when the receipt has gone missing and/or the item has increased in value.

An Insurance Valuation is the most typical type of valuation sought and is compiled on the basis of what a broadly similar article will cost to replace in the unfortunate event of loss or damage.  A Private Sale Valuation applies where one wishes to privately sell an article of value and needs to know what a reasonable price would be. A Probate Valuation may be required upon the death of the owner of jewellery and other valuables, this is needed in order to wind up an estate; possible liability for death duties may ensue.

A valuation is an opinion based upon many years of experience allied to formal training in gemmology and other specialist areas of product knowledge. We have our specialists and with the use of modern technology and machinery results are more accurate than they have been in the past.
