A professional valuation is an important safeguard if your jewellery is lost, stolen or damaged for many reasons. It provides proof of ownership in the happy event that the jewellery is recovered. Insurance companies are unlikely to provide full compensation for an expensive piece of jewellery unless you can prove its true value. A valuation also gives you a comprehensive description of the item, which is invaluable if you decide to have the piece remade. Valuation is also an effective means of ensuring you receive a fair price if you sell your jewellery, provided the valuation is undertaken for that reason.
It is important to have your jewellery reassessed every two or three years to ensure the valuation is current.
Standard price valuation is $89 done by a registered jewellery valuer who belongs to National Council of Jewellery Valuers (NCJV).
