JEWELLERY VALUATION FEES

Easy to understand and transparent

As a truly 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, and include VAT. Printable Price List

Presented in a beautifully bound folder, we provide an exceptionally detailed report. In addition, each valuation contains picture pages and, when required, a loose leaf summary to send on to your insurer. View an animated sample jewellery valuation.
