We hope no harm ever comes to your treasured possessions but it is important that items are insured, just in case you ever need to make a claim.
At JDS, we can arrange your valuation for you. Our experts examine your jewellery and provide a written valuation that acts as a legal document for insurance purposes. We’ll take photographs, note distinguishing features and write a full description of each item. This makes it much easier to identify your jewellery, if the worst should ever happen.
Many jewellers charge a percentage of your jewellery’s value to provide a valuation, but we charge a simple fixed fee so you’ll know how much the service costs before you agree to it.
You may require a valuation for a number of reasons; the most common is that your insurer requires one to provide adequate insurance cover for your watches and jewellery. Other reasons include probate, private sale or just for personal interest.
A professional valuation is essential for insurance and can help in the recovery of stolen items. A discreet mark, exactly like a hallmark can be applied upon request to most jewellery items and it clearly identifies the item as yours.
In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, your details are kept entirely confidential and can only be released to the police or your insurers with your permission.
