Jewellery Valuations

Written by 
Published in Les Harris Blog


Have you had your jewellery valued? Was it recently?

More and more people are becoming victims of crime and having their precious possessions stolen, often with no record of the items and no idea of their current replacement value! Sentimental items, and those passed down generations, can’t always be replaced, but at least you have some peace of mind that you may at least get something back.

The price of precious metals is at an all time high, and you may be surprised to discover what your items are now worth, particularly when trying to replace them at today’s prices.Valuations are usually only a small cost and can prove invaluable if proof of an item’s value is required by your insurance company.

Some jewellery valuers take photographs of items; we recommend doing this yourself for your records. We do offer a valuation service, at a cost of 2% of the overall value of the goods. Please give us a call or drop us an email to discuss valuing your items in more detail!
