Valuation and Probate Services.
Whether you are looking to sell your Jewellery or simply need it valued for Insurance or Probate purposes, our fully trained Valuer can provide a Professional Valuation for all pieces of fine, antique, and modern Jewellery.
The value for probate is based on ‘open market value’ or, in other words, the value for which they could be sold if a bargain were made between a willing buyer and a willing seller. Open market value is generally considerably less than a retail insurance figure and it is vital that any valuation takes this important factor into account otherwise the Estate might find itself unnecessarily liable to inheritance tax (IHT). If you do not have a professional valuation carried out an inexperienced eye may miss objects of value and not realise the true potential of the estate.
We also offer a buy-in service for fine Jewellery as a convenient and commission-free alternative to Auction Houses. We are able to offer a quick and confidential service, whether you are looking to sell for cash, or perhaps considering part – exchange or need advice on repairs or remodelling.
