Why get your Jewellery Valued?

We hope that your jewellery is never lost or stolen, but in the unfortunate event that it is you will need to make a claim on your insurance. When you make a claim, your insurance company will ask you for proof of ownership and value.

A professional jewellery valuation carried out by one of our experienced 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 the jewellery and watch valuations we undertake are held on a secure database. They are held anonymously but are retrievable so they can be checked by the police and insurance companies when required.

What you get with your Valuation:

If you choose to have your precious jewellery valued by us, here is what you will receive as part of your valuation:

  • High quality images of each of your valued items
  • Detailed descriptions
  • A digital copy of your valuation portfolio, with a hard copy available upon request
  • Access to your valuation details on a secure database

How do I get my Jewellery Valued?

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 file 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.


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

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 for further information.
