Valuations & Appraisals

If you are looking to understand the value of some of your items whether through curiosity or because of insurance or perhaps probate we have a service to help.

Over the counter Appraisals

It’s very tricky to identify if a piece of jewellery is made from precious metals or base metals, if a watch is genuine or a copy or if an item is silver or plated.

We offer a free over-the-counter verbal appraisal service to help you identify your treasures.

We can then advise you on the best ways to proceed with written valuations, estimates for selling the items or re-designing them into something new.
