GemVal Gemstones & Jewellery Valuations Fees

What are the fees?

Please feel welcome to bring along any items you are not sure of.

I do not charge to make an inspection and discuss with you the merits of having a valuation done.

My fee structure is not based upon a percentage of the value of your goods: I feel that this is an unethical way of charging.

I have set fees for items depending upon their complexity.

PLEASE SEE BELOW

OTHER SERVICES PROVIDED

Deceased Estates

  1. Having trouble equally distributing jewellery between benefactors?
  2. Contested Will?
  3. Bring the items to me, or I can come and view the items and give you a quote as a’ lot’. The quote will be based on the requirements, the estimated time needed to achieve the desired result.
  4. The items can be given a total value and also divided into ‘lots’ of equal value by myself as an unbiased professional.
  5. Your requirements can all be discussed and negotiated after the initial free inspection.

Divorce Settlement, Acrimonious Split?

  1. Arguments over the value of precious items?
  2. Bring them to me, or I can come to view the objects and give you a quote to put a value to the items in question.
  3. Again based upon the complexity of the job and the number of hours required to complete the assignment.

Depending upon the items involved, I am available to visit legal offices, if necessary, for the initial inspection and discussion of exactly what is required.

Hypothetical Valuations

  1. Have you lost a precious item with no valuation certificate?
  2. I can help by providing a “hypothetical valuation” for your insurance company.
  3. This would be based on information you can provide, as to size, weight, colour etc.
  4. Any photographs would be immensely helpful.
  5. Call me to discuss free of charge.
