Jewellery Valuations

Jewellery Valuations

We Offer Jewellery Valuations in Sydney

It’s generally accepted that many people underinsure their jewellery and that’s hardly surprising since most don’t really know what they have and don’t keep up-to-date with changing prices. That may be a serious matter if your jewellery is lost, stolen or damaged because insurance companies won’t pay you the full value. So it’s important you get an up-to-date jewellery valuation in Sydney.

Using Sydney Jewellery Valuers for Peace of Mind

Getting an accurate valuation for insurance means you can arrange adequate cover and won’t run the risk of being under-insured. You may also, of course, require a valuation for other reasons such as because you’re thinking of selling privately or at auction, for probate purposes or simply because you want to know the real value. Whatever the reason, we have the knowledge and experience to ensure each valuation is accurate. This will be based on the original value when purchased, changes in the market since then and the effect of alterations to raw material prices as well as the current condition of each item. If the poor condition of an item seriously detracts from its value, we can provide a full repair and refurbishment service to restore it to prime condition. Our professional staff have extensive experience of the market and knowledge of a wide range of jewellery types, whether antique or contemporary, whatever the style and country of origin. This enables them to give a fair and accurate valuation of anything you bring in and we are totally independent and professional in our approach.

How We Undertake a Jewellery Valuation in Sydney

For each item that you require to be valued, we will provide:
  • a schedule that has a detailed description of the item and its value
  • photographic identification
  • information about how the valuation has been arrived at, with explanatory notes where necessary
  • a notice for your insurer that will set out the relevant details of the valuation.
Once we have undertaken an initial valuation of an item, any subsequent revaluation in years to come will be a simpler and cheaper process since we will already have much of the required information. Because the valuation is provided by reputable jewellery valuers in Sydney, it will be accepted as accurate by your insurers and will enable you to arrange adequate cover. In the event of an item being lost, stolen or damaged, the process of claiming will be much quicker and easier because you will have documentary evidence that will identify it and its value, and prove you are the owner. That will come in handy if lost property is subsequently recovered since your claim to it will be obvious, whereas without jewellery valuations from Sydney, the process would be much more difficult.

We Offer The Best Watch repairs in Sydney

Most car owners have their cars serviced at regular intervals but don’t think there’s a need to do the same for their watch. That’s despite a car being parked for over half of its life while a watch works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And yet the watch is expected to keep going with no attention at all.

How Regular Watch Repairs in Sydney Will Prolong a Watch’s Life

A mechanical watch has a huge number of moving parts that will wear over time while the lubrication for those parts will tend to dry out. Consequently, a service at least once every five years is recommended by most manufacturers. Although a quartz watch has fewer moving parts, servicing is recommended every 2-3 years because of the need to inspect and replace the battery. A regular service will ensure your watch continues to perform well for many years. Failing this, if your watch doesn’t keep accurate time, has condensation under the glass or fails to function correctly in any way, then some attention is needed. If there are specific problems, our watch repairer in Sydney can correct them by:
  • cleaning the mechanism so it runs properly
  • replacing the winding mechanism
  • fitting a new battery
  • putting on a new dial or glass if scratched or damaged
  • adjusting and replacing bracelets or straps
  • identifying and correcting faults.

 Ensure You Have the Most Thorough and Best Watch Repair

We know you rely on your watch and it’s important to you, so our service is as thorough as it can be. For each watch, we:
  • check the exterior thoroughly for defects
  • open the case and remove the seals and crown
  • check the winding and setting mechanism
  • ensure the hands and other functions work correctly
  • disassemble the movement, check parts and replace any that are worn
  • clean parts carefully and thoroughly
  • reassemble the movement, ensuring it works to specification
  • replace the battery if relevant
  • lubricate with fine oils and grease
  • check the movement’s timing works to standards
  • refit the dial and hands
  • clean the case and bracelet or strap
  • renew or replace case seals
  • restore the movement in the case
  • where appropriate, ensure water resistance is in line with specifications
  • check timing and accuracy, and adjust if necessary.
Once we complete the service, your watch will have, depending on the brand, a new 12 or 24-month guarantee. We can deal with all types, makes and ages of watch.

Looking for the best Jewellery Repair Service in Sydney?

While diamonds may be forever; you need to take good care of your jewellery and get it repaired at the first sign of problems. Jewellery often has special and sentimental meaning that far exceeds any material value, so keeping it in its best condition is essential.

How Jewellery Repairs in Sydney Keep You Looking Good

You can help to keep your jewellery looking its best by caring for it properly and usually that’s no more than taking sensible and obvious measures. Don’t wear your jewellery when it’s likely to get knocked or scraped, avoid caustic substances and dirt, and store safely when not in use. Keep each piece clean by polishing with a soft cloth, although a more professional approach is required to do a thorough job. Dirt, pollution and regular wear unavoidably affect your jewellery and specialist cleaning at regular intervals will restore that ‘as new’ look. At the same time, our experienced professionals can identify wear that has taken place and advise the need for repairs. Early work will prevent further deterioration, avoid more expensive repairs later and ensure your precious jewellery always looks in the best possible condition. Jewellery repairs in Sydney can range from the fairly common need to resize rings, re-thread pearls and replace claws to more complex work. If stones have been lost, we can replace diamonds and other gems with comparable ones so jewellery looks as before. We can restore irreplaceable family heirlooms, reapply faded rhodium plating to white gold and generally restore the sparkle of jewellery items.
