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.
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.
For each item that you require to be valued, we will provide:
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.
