Why Choose a Registered Valuer?

When the time comes for you to get a valuation, you may do some research as to who should appraise your jewellery. Many high street jewellers offer a valuation service, and if they don’t do them onsite, they can send the items away to be assessed. If you choose to take your items to a retail jeweller to be valued, it’s not unusual for your valuation to be undertaken by the same person who sells jewellery, organises repairs and perhaps changes watch batteries. Alternatively, there are Independent Valuers who have their own business (like mine), where their sole role is to value jewellery and watches. We don’t buy jewellery or scrap. We don’t sell any jewellery. All of our focus is on the appraisal of your items.

The most important thing you need to look for in a valuer is that they are a Member or Fellow of The Jewellery Valuers Association (JVA). The JVA is the only independent body in the UK and Ireland exclusively for valuers of jewellery, gemstones, watches and silver. It is professionally recognised and its membership includes some of the highest profile and distinguished valuers in the UK. Entry standards are extremely high, ensuring its Members and Fellows are trained to the highest level with a plethora of experience, which is paramount to undertaking valuations today.

Mr Kirby

"Karra made time to see us on a Saturday at the time that suited us, and at short notice due to urgency of appointment. She turned around the valuation faster than expected, which was great. She was professional, polite and provided everything we needed. Brilliant service!"

R Hughes

"Having never had any jewellery valued before, It was helpful that Karra explained each stage of the process and answered all my questions. I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to my friends."

"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 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."

Oliver Mate

"I needed to have a watch and a ring valued for insurance purposes at short notice. Karra attended out house within one day. She provided a fantastic service, not only valuing the ring and watch but also offering insight and tips around servicing and care. The valuation report was accurate and clear and sent within the day. 5-star service and an all round lovely person!"

"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."

Quote icon


"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!"
