JEWELLERY VALUATIONS

An independent valuation service is offered weekly by a National Association of Goldsmiths registered valuer. This service is chargeable but offers you a detailed certificate with a breakdown of each item.

There three main types of valuation available:

Insurance - The valuation is usually based on the cost of replacing your jewellery with similar items.  If you prefer, it may be based on the estimated costs of re-creating articles exactly to the original designs. 

Probate - The valuation is based on the price which the jewellery would have realised had it been sold at the time of the death of the owner.  As this does not take into account the current cost of labour, materials or tax but only the current situation, the figures put on jewellery valued for probate will be considerably lower than those for insurance purposes.

Private Sale - The valuation will take into account not only the condition, style and quality of the jewellery but the jeweller’s view of the market possibilities at the time of the valuation.   Fair selling prices will be suggested on the date of appraisal – probably a figure between insurance and probate values.
