Valuation Fees

Easy to understand and transparent

As an independent valuer, our fees are not based on the value of your items. We use a fixed menu-style fee structure linked to the number of items in the valuation and their complexity, VAT at the standard rate is included.

 

We provide exceptionally detailed reports delivered electronically by email. For a small additional fee a printed and bound version can be made available. In addition, each valuation contains picture pages and explanatory notes. View an animated sample of a jewellery valuation here.

What a jewellery valuation is made of.

An item of jewellery can have several values applied to it depending on the reason you need the valuation. Some of the more usual purposes and functions of a jewellery appraisal and valuation are for retail replacement – to obtain insurance cover, open market – guidance when selling, probate – dealing with the estate of someone who has died  and family division. There are of course others but no matter what the intended use of one of our valuations, all will contain the following:

 

  • Item appraisal – Full and detailed descriptions
  • Colour photos – Brilliant crisp pictures
  • Glossary of terms – No baffling jargon
  • Bound in a stylish and durable folder
  • A PDF file of the report sent to your email address for onward transmittal to your insurance company or agent
  • Monetary value of the item(s) in line with the valuation purpose and appropriate market
