Heming offers jewellery valuations for the purposes of insurance, probate and resale. Schedules are meticulously prepared and include photographic images alongside detailed descriptions and up-to-date market values. The Heming team includes certified gemologists and diamond graders with the requisite skills to ensure the accuracy of stone type, size, weights, qualities, and values. Insurance appraisals are vital .
An insurance appraisal describes individual pieces along with a photograph and assigns replacement values that reflect current retail values. Up to date insurance valuations are vital in in case jewellery is damaged, lost or stolen, to help guarantee a fair reimbursement for the item subject to claim.
Probate appraisals involve valuing items from an estate for tax purposes. All jewellery items are described in similar written detail, however the value ascribed reflects the immediate second hand resale value as opposed to the much higher retail replacement value.
As part of its standard service, Heming photographs items for ease of reference. This can be invaluable in the event of future claims and replacement. Insurance cover can be arranged for customers in store.
Our charges for this service are usually 1% of the total jewellery value and minimum charges will apply. Please note that valuation fees are subject to VAT.
