Why do I need my jewellery valued you may ask?
- For insurance
Its important for your insurance to have a record of your treasured jewellery collection.
Don’t put off a valuation, often people think it is something they should do, but life gets in the way and they don’t get around to it.
Many people are very surprised at the increase in value of their collection.
Its important to have a reasonably current valuation.
- To check that you are not under insured
Due to a big increase in precious metal prices in recent years, many households are under insured.
Most people are shocked when they realise how much their treasured collections have increased in value.
Many insures ask for any item valued at over £1500 to be recorded separately.
- For probate
You may need a probate valuation as part of the process of valuing an estate. ( see note below )
- Family divorce
You may need this kind of valuation when either party cannot agree on the settlement.
- To prove ownership in event of theft
If the worst happens and your jewellery collection gets stolen, the last thing you want is problems with your insurer due to lack of information about the items in question.
