Jewellery & Watch Valuations



Jewellery valuations require expertise and discipline to ensure that descriptions are precise, identifications correct and measurements accurate.

The Institute of Registered Valuers (IRV) is the UK's leading association of jewellery valuers and ensure that valuations undertaken by its members are of the highest standard. To become an IRV Member the valuer must take a Professional Jewellers' Valuation Diploma (PJValDip) or the Certificate of Appraisal Theory (CAT) exams as well as having a minimum of 5 years’ experience in the jewellery trade/industry. As well as this, they must have a practical gemmological qualification, a diamond grading certificate. To continue to practice, members have their work monitored regularly and submit samples of their work to be inspected and approved by the institute on a regular basis.

We are fortunate to have two fellows of IRV in our Gold Street showroom who undertake all our valuations onsite. Both passed their latest monitoring with flying colours – achieving the title of Fellow to add to their achievements.

To ensure that we provide an accurate, detailed and precise service we need your goods in for 7-10 days to give time to thoroughly research and calculate fair and true values. We also take detailed photos of the items for your records.

We offer a number of valuation services including valuation for insurance, sales between parties and probate valuations. We value jewellery, antique jewellery, heirlooms, watches, pocket watches, clocks, loose stones, silverware, engagement rings and much more.
