Why get your jewellery valued?

Your jewellery is precious and it is important to protect it. In the event that your jewellery is ever lost or stolen and you need to make a claim, your insurance company will probably ask for proof of ownership and a professional valuation of your items.
An F.Hinds professional valuation will provide just this and in the hopeful event that the police recover your possessions, would help you to prove ownership and get them back. All valuations are registered on a secure database so they can be checked by the police and insurance companies when required.

So whether the valuation is for insurance replacement, probate, sales between parties or to get an accurate and current valuation of your jewellery to ensure your insurance premiums are correct, we can help.

How do I go about getting my jewellery valued?

We hold regular Valuation Days in our stores throughout the year. These prove to be very popular as they provide the opportunity to talk face to face with the valuer. You can learn more about your jewellery and have it cleaned, weighed and measured. All details will be recorded - along with a full description of each item - and presented to you in a professional portfolio.

Valuations on the day are by appointment only. If you are interested in attending one, please phone your local store to make an appointment. Stores can be found here via our Store Locator. Please note that we do have to restrict the number of appointments on the day to ensure that all customers are allowed sufficient time.

What if I can’t make a Valuation Day?

It's simple. Take your jewellery items along to any of our stores and staff will arrange for your items to be sent securely to our valuation centre. The store will be happy to advise you on how long the service will take and the total cost (prices start from £49.95). If you decide to go ahead, a full receipt for all of your items will be provided whilst they are in our care.

This professional valuation service is carried out by registered valuers and the process takes approximately three to four weeks. Your jewellery will be cleaned, weighed, measured and photographed and you will receive your own personal folder containing a full detailed description of each item together with digital images of all your items. This is designed to offer the very best protection for your jewellery and watches.

If you would just like to find out more information about our valuation service then why not call into your local store? They will be very happy to explain the service in more detail.
