Discover the history and value of your precious jewellery and have a professional valuation carried out by an expert while you wait. Mary Waterfall from the Guild of Valuers & Jewellers will be available by appointment between 9.30am and 5.00pm to carry out personal consultations on your items of jewellery. Valuations are vital to ensure that you have the proper insurance cover for your items at the current market value. The valuations produced are beautifully presented and include detailed descriptions and digital photographs of each item, together with documentation for your insurance company and advice on what to do in the event of a loss. Once the valuation is completed, information about your jewellery is stored on a secure national database, e-register, using unique reference numbers and orphaned data to protect your identity. To book an appointment at this special event simply call in or contact us. Space is limited so early booking is advised. Due to demand a maximum of 10 items can be valued on the day although if you have other items you would like valued these can be brought along on the day and will be returned to you within the normal time span of four to five days. Valuation prices start at £49.95.
