TRADITIONALLY, JEWELLERY VALUATION FEES WERE BASED ON THE VALUE OF THE JEWELLERY, CAUSING GREAT UNCERTAINTY AS TO THE THE LIKELY FEE PRIOR TO COMPLETION OF THE VALUATION.
WE USE A FIXED PER-ITEM FEE SYSTEM TO PREVENT THE NASTY SHOCKS THAT MAY OCCUR DUE TO THIS SYSTEM. WE CAN GIVE YOU AN EXACT ESTIMATE, PRIOR TO STARTING WORK.
OUR FEES ARE FAIR AND REALISTIC TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF A PROPER APPRAISAL AND VALUATION REPORT. TO PRODUCE A PROFESSIONAL REPORT REQUIRES SPECIAL EXPERTISE, EXPERIENCE, TIME AND OFTEN SPECIALIST RESEARCH, ALL OF WHICH WE ARE PLEASED TO PROVIDE.
All your jewellery items will be checked for wear or damage and cleaned & polished without extra charge. For a nominal fee your valuation will be updated every three years. All work booked by appointment is completed within seven days.
