Our Services

In house Jewellery Valuations

Our FGA qualified gemmologist can provide you with a detailed and accurate appraisal for insurance, confirmation of estate, probate or family division. A valuation takes approximately two to three days to complete, for up to three items. Larger valuations take longer depending on how many items there are. All items are fully insured and unlike most jewellers, we carry out the valuation of your items at our premises.


Valuation for insurance - £25 plus 1.5 % of the total value

Inheritance valuation - £25 plus 3% of the total value

No appointment is necessary.
