We offer a fully comprehensive professional valuation service on all types of jewellery and silverware. We have a fully equipped gem-testing laboratory on our own premises. Valuation Schedules are well presented together with colour photographs of all items  appraised. A full diamond grading chart is included when appropriate. Appraisals can be carried out for the purpose of insurance, probate or sale/division between parties.

Replacement costs tend to increase and valuations carried out only a few years ago could be seriously out of date resulting in insufficient compensation should an item be lost or stolen.

A detailed valuation schedule will provide:-

  • A comprehensive check list should a loss occur.
  • Proof of ownership if items are recovered by the police.
  • Sufficient details to allow similar items to be bought or hand made.
  • A firm foundation on which to base a claim in the event of any dispute with the insurer.
  • All items of jewellery are carefully cleaned prior to the appraisal and professional advice given should any work be necessary.


£65 for the first item and £25 for further items (includes V.A.T)
