Valuations

Why get your Jewellery Valued?

Your jewellery is precious and it is important to protect it. In the unfortunate 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 value.

A professional valuation for insurance purposes, carried out by an independent valuers, is by far the best way to maximise your chances of achieving a fair result. Also, if the police recover your lost possessions, a valuation with high-quality images and detailed descriptions could be the only way you can provide evidence of ownership.

All valuations are registered on a secure database. These are held anonymously but are retrievable so they can be checked by the police and insurance companies if required.

While the majority of valuations are for insurance purposes, we can also help if you need a valuation for probate or sales between parties.

Even though jewellery is the most popular item that we value, we also offer valuations on watches, porcelain and clocks.



What you get with your Valuation:

  • High quality images of each of your valued items
  • Detailed descriptions
  • A hard copy and/or digital copy of your valuation portfolio
  • Access to your valuation details on a secure database


How do I get my Jewellery Valued?

We hold regular Valuation Days in our stores throughout the year.. They're always popular because they provide you the opportunity to speak with an independant valuer face-to-face and ask any questions you may have. You can learn more about your jewellery, have it cleaned, weighed and measured. Your items are appraised and valued - along with a detailed description of each item - and presented to you in a professional portfolio.

Valuations on the day are by appointment only so if you're interested in attending one, please call your local store to make an appointment for one of their Valuation Days. Click to find your local store via our Store Locator.

We only have a limited number of appointments during our Valuation Days so please book now to ensure you get your appointment!

What if I can't make a Valuation Day?

It's simple. Take your items to any of our stores and we'll arrange for them to be sent securely to our valuation centre. If you decide to go ahead with this, then 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 our valuers, The Guild of Valuers and Jewellers, and takes approximately 3 - 4 weeks. Your jewellery will be cleaned, weighed, measured and photographed and you'll receive your own personal folder containing a detailed description and a high-resolution image of each item.

Our valuers are highly qualified members (MIRV) and fellows (FIRV) of the National Association of Jewellers' Institute of Registered Valuers.

If you would like to find out more information about our Valuation Service then why not call into your local F.Hinds? Our store staff will be very happy to explain the service in more detail to you. You can also call our Customer Services team on 01895 201000, or email them at customerservices@fhinds.co.uk for further information.
