Why Do I Need A Valuation? A detailed report is essential when claiming insurance for lost, stolen or damaged items, and when seeking a fair price at a sale. A valuation can also be useful in the following instances : probate, new replacement value, auction reserves, second hand sales, deceased estate appraisals, divorce property settlement.
What Happens During An Appointment? We offer a ‘Whist you Wait’ appointment. This means that the jewellery to be valued is tested and photographed whilst you wait in the same room. A PDF and hardcopy of the valuation schedule is then sent out to you 24-48hrs (depending on research) after the initial meeting.
What Do I Need To Bring? We will ask you to bring the item to be valued, any previous documents, reports, certificates. These enable the valuer to record relevant information in your new valuation document. Often stones are weighed before setting and reports/certificates will have this information recorded.
What Do You Receive? Our KAB jewellery valuation reports come printed on high quality acid free paper including cover with a detailed description of your jewellery, a clear digital photograph, schedule and signature. A PDF copy of this report is also supplied.
