Why Choose a Registered Valuer?

Registered valuers are professionals who have trained in gemmology and diamond grading as well as the study of valuation theory. They will have years of experience in the field and can be classed at the top of their profession.

In order to become registered, along with educational pre-requisites, the valuer must submit samples of their work anonymously to one of the two valuation bodies in the country for assessment, to ensure both the theory and practice of valuations is carried out to the highest degree. In the UK, these valuation bodies are the Jewellery Valuers Association and the NAJ’s Institute of Registered Valuers. Our valuer Karra Ellison is a Fellow of both these organisations – with Fellow representing the top tier of valuers.

Registered Valuers must complete continued professional development to ensure they are always up to date with new treatments, synthetics, fakes and more as well as being peer reviewed every five years to ensure their standard of work still meets the high requirements set by the organisations.


Our valuer Karra Ellison is a Fellow of the Jewellery Valuers Association and an NAJ Institute of Registered Valuers Fellow.

"I was recommended Karra by a local jeweller who told me that she carried out all her valuations of jewellery. I met her on Saturday where she quickly and efficiently valued my watch and I had a PDF report by Tuesday with a very pleasing value. I would definitely recommend Karra as the service was good and fast and will use her again when i next get it valued. Thank you"

"Karra has provided an excellent service whereby she attended my home, valued an engagement ring - required by my insurer- and produced a professional and well put together document in a fast and efficient manner. I’d highly recommend her and will have the item reappraised by her in 3 years. Thank you Karra!"

"Karra was charming, reliable and very knowledgeable. It was really helpful that she could come to my house to value my late mother's jewellery and I thoroughly enjoyed talking to her about jewellery in general. I would definitely recommend Karra's services."

"An internet search for a local valuer to come to my house to value my late mothers jewellery bought up Karra's details. I liked what I read about on her site and so made contact. From the first conversation Karra was very professional and easy to talk to. The charges involved were all clear and upfront. The visit itself was interesting and enjoyable, Karra is passionate and knowledgeable about her work. I am very happy with the service that Karra has provided and would have no hesitation about recommending her."

"Karra recently appraised a diamond ring and a diamond tennis bracelet for me. I am in the industry myself and I found her to be knowledgable and professional throughout. Her report was detailed, accurate and given in an efficient and timely manner and I would have no hesitation recommending her. I will be using her in future on both a personal and professional level."

"Karra provided such an excellent service valuing my watches. I was so concerned about leaving them with a jeweller or sending them away that I had put off having them valued for so long. I also knew this would have meant they wouldn't be properly insured. But then I came across Karra's details and booked her to visit. Everything was so easy and straight forward. Karra was so professional but also knowledgeable and interesting to chat too. She gave me lots of information about my watches. I also particularly liked the way she only charges a flat fee rather than a percentage of the value which my local jeweller was suggesting.
So happy with the service and would definitely use Karra again."

"I asked Karra to provide a valuation for probate purposes of the various items of jewellery from my mother’s estate. Karra visited my house and examined and valued all the jewellery and other valuables. She was a kind enough to answer my questions about a couple of the items. The Valuation Report was clear, informative and delivered promptly. Her fee was very reasonable considering the time taken and expertise required. Overall, I was very impressed indeed."

"We booked Karra for a home visit to provide insurance valuations of a watch and an engagement ring. She arrived on time and carried out a very professional service from start to finish. Highly recommend."

"Karra provided a very efficient service. She came to my home to perform a valuation which meant I did not have to leave home or part with the item of jewelry concerned. She conducted the valuation process in a thorough and professional way. I was very interested to observe the procedures involved and she was patient and informed in dealing with my questions. She has an engaging personality and a key interest in her profession, demonstrated by the effort she has expended in obtaining her various qualifications. She produced the comprehensive valuation report in the time frame promised and offered to answer any follow up questions if any. This was not necessary."

"Karra responded promptly to my request for a jewellery valuation and we quickly arranged a mutually conventient time for her to come to my home. She was friendly, polite and efficient in person and produced the valuation quickly and conventiently. Thank you Karra!"
