Our Fees

As our name suggests, we intend to be upfront and clear regarding our service - so our fees are no different.

We charge on a per item basis rather than by time taken or value assessed. This ensures there is no bias to increasing the fees charged and also means you will know exactly how much your valuation will cost you before it is undertaken. There are no hidden charges – everything is included.

Upon your initial enquiry we will discuss the items you are looking to have valued and provide you with a free estimate for our services. If you choose us to undertake your valuation your estimate will be confirmed upon initial observation of the items, ensuring you are happy to continue.

We now accept Card Payments for all valuation fees. Charges may apply - please contact for further information.

General Assessment

If you have Jewellery and Watch items that you have been left or simply don’t know much about, we are happy to cast our eye over them to advise you what you may have. We can test the metals, assess any gemstones and Diamonds, and answer any questions you may have about them. This service is becoming increasingly popular, especially with inherited items.

We charge £150.00 per hour to assess items on this basis; however if you decide to have some of the items documented for Insurance, we will reduce this fee.
