This involves us keeping your items for a while, as we examine and test them. You will receive an in depth written valuation including a photograph of your items.
We will need to keep your goods for a week or so and they will be securely stored in our safe, while this is being done. We do not send jewellery away for valuation, we do it in house.
If you have not had your jewellery valued for a while you may be quite surprised at the increase in value, and may find that it is currently under-insured.
We always recommend holding a separate policy for jewellery, with the company we use ourselves, as they are not tied to any particular jeweller and allow you to purchase any replacements from the shop of your choice.
Many insurance companies do not allow this, and insist that you purchase new items to replace older pieces; this may not be what you
want, so please check your policy details carefully.
We have advised many customers on replacements over the decades, so have a lot of experience in this area.
