Why should i value my Jewellery & Gemstones?
Is it important that you value your jewellery & gemstones? Absolutely!
It is extremely important that all your jewellery is valued. It may not be of any use at the current time, but in the future, it may be your highly beneficial. Here's why:
In case of theft or if you loose or misplace you item, a valuation by a reputable & registered valuer can assist in insurance claims & investigations to help identify your jewellery pieces. We recommend to all our clients that the valuations are presented to your insurance companies for further information on future claim procedures.
During divorce or legal proceedings, a valuation may be presented as evidence of value & assist in identification. A jewellery valuer is able to give a professional opinion on all jewellery matters in legal proceedings.
Thinking of reselling? You may have purchased a jewellery item years ago, in which case the value may have changed dramatically. If you have a received a gift which you are unsure of value and wish to resell, a valuation can help buyers understand the correct detail of your item, particularly if selling online. Jewellery valuations are not an indication of what one would receive in resale, however they can help a buyer understand things like diamond weights, gemstone identification & gold karat.
We recommend that all jewellery valuations are kept in a separate area to your jewellery. Having photos of your jewellery can also help in identification & may be useful to show proof of ownership.
A registered jewellery valuer will hold subscriptions with Australian & international price guide organisations, as well as be educated & experienced in gemmology, jewellery, diamond grading & valuations. Most gemologist will have a number of tools & equipment vital to help identify the gemstones & make accurate grades.
