JEWELLERY VALUER AND GEMMOLOGIST
Jewellery Valuations in Kendal and Lancaster
Welcome to Northern Valuations, an independent professional jewellery and watch valuation service direct to members of the public, using our home visit service or, if it is more convenient, at your office or bank in Kendal and Lancaster.
We cover a wide area including Cumbria, North Lancashire and North Yorkshire. Other areas may be covered on request.
All valuations will be personally appraised by leading valuer and Fellow of the Institute of Registered Valuers-Gordon Bramwell -PJ Gem Dip, PJ Val Dip. FNAG.
Although most valuation schedules are prepared for insurance replacement purposes they can also be prepared for probate, divorce/family settlement and private sale.
Your jewellery will be inspected and if, necessary cleaned, before being digitally photographed and expertly appraised. All relevant details are recorded such as:
Jewellery Valuations have changed a lot in recent years. They now need to meet an array of legal requirements and insurance company stipulations.
- The assessed colour and clarity of diamonds, dimensions and weight.
- Certificate/report details of certificated diamonds.
- Gemstone type, quality, dimensions and weight.
- Hallmarks and other identifying marks.
- Mode of manufacture and setting style.
We will also advise you of any repairs needed to keep your jewellery in tip-top condition- which can prove costly if overlooked! A glossary of terms used in the schedule can be found at the back of the report to enable you to fully understand your document.
Our reports meet all of the criteria required by law, your insurance company and the institutions that we belong to. They are totally unbiased and independent so you can have total confidence in our findings.
You can also have confidence in our service too, as we have been vetted by Trading Standards and appear on their approved list of businesses, the Business Approved Register.
