Jewellery Valuation and Fees

Your items will be examined, appraised and valued personally by Georgina. They will be cleaned and then using expertise and experience together with high-tech equipment a detailed description of your items will be compiled including quality photographs. Based on this, and after thorough research, a valuation document will be prepared along with an informed opinion of the item's value for the purpose stated.

Our extensive descriptions and their values are presented in a beautiful folder that we hope you will get pleasure reffering to.

Valuation Types

There are several values that can be applied to an item depending on the purpose of your request. Valuation for Insurance is the most frequently sought report but the following are available according to your requirements.

Georgina will be happy to advise you if your are unsure what type of valuation best meets your needs.

  • Valuation for Insurance Replacement
  • Probate
  • Capital Gains Assessment
  • Divorce Settlement
  • Sale Between Parties
  • Fair Open Market Valuation

Each of these valuation types ascribe a different value, has a different approach to calculating the value and attracts different wording to the report.

In addition to the above Georgina also provide consulation services concerning Post-Loss scenarios, damage assement and pre-litigation advice.

Valuations charges are not based on the value of your item and there is no charge for an initial item assessment to identify which of your items require valuation.

  • £60.00 for the first item (including consultation and document set up)
  • £40.00 for subsequent items
  • Premium items* are charged at a higher rate
We are delighted with the very impressive documents and the wonderful presentation. It has been a pleasure to have you in our home.

*Premium Items: These are complex items of items that require extensive additional research, e.g. very high value jewellery, items containing many different species of gemstones and jewels with reserachable provenance. The fee will be quoted in advance so that you will always know what the cost for your valuation will be. There are no hidden charges. The vast majority of items fall outside this definition.
