As we have seen particularly in the last two years, the value of precious metals and gems can increase dramatically. Jewellery is also prone to the vagaries of fashion. Therefore we recommend valuing your jewellery collection every three to four years.
We value jewellery for replacement, probate, division and shipping purposes. Our basic valuation rate is .25% of the total value plus VAT, or a minimum charge of £30.00 plus VAT. However we are very happy to quote to carry out valuations on a project-by-project basis, whether you require a valuation for two or three very high value items or you have a large collection of generally low value items.
We would greatly appreciate advance warning if you are thinking of bringing your jewellery to us for valuation so that we can plan a mutually convenient time. Your jewellery will need to be left with us for a few days and you will be given a full receipt for it. We regret we are unable to offer a 'while you wait service'.
