Insurance Valuations

Valuations for Insurance and Probate

At Nicholas Wylde we provide our customers with the best service available locally, to provide valuations for both insurance and probate.  We ensure precious jewellery is professionally assessed and documented.

Valuations for Insurance

Many people do not have their jewellery adequately insured, particularly if they have been given, or inherited an item.  Many insurance policies state a maximum single item limit for valuables such as jewellery and we find that people often own and wear items with a value well exceeding these limits.

We use a local independent valuation organisation who are NAG registered.  They have twenty years of specialised experience in the jewellery business.

All jewellery valued can be professionally cleaned and polished in our workshop.  Our valuations provide all the information (dimensions of stones, grades, weights, hallmarks etc.) required by a post loss assessor, they include a detailed photograph to illustrate and aid the provided description.

VALUATION CHARGES:

STANDARD 7 DAY VALUATION SERVICE

  • one item schedule costs £65
  • additional items costs £50 (per item)

If you require a valuation sooner than seven days, please contact us as we may be able to arrange a quicker service at a special rate.

It is advisable to have your jewellery re-valued every three years, as its value may fluctuate, and be higher than the figure it is insured for.  Any jewellery you have purchased from us will be re-valued at 25% discount on providing a copy of the last valuation.  All other valuations will be charged at our normal fee.

If you do not have any insurance or find that your jewellery is underinsured, but do not want to change your home contents policy, we can send you an application form and details where you can obtain a competitive quote.

REMEMBER – YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR FIRST VALUATION FREE OF CHARGE FOR ANY ITEM WORTH OVER £1,000 PURCHASED AT NICHOLAS WYLDE BUT EXCLUDES SECOND HAND SALES.  THIS VALUATION CAN BE UPDATED EVERY THREE YEARS AT 25% DISCOUNT FROM THE NORMAL CHARGE.

Valuations for Probate

A probate valuation values items belonging to a deceased person for the estate of that person.  A probate valuation values items at their lowest resale value- i.e. what you could expect to be paid if you took the items into a jewellers and asked them to purchase the items from you or sold them at an auction.

PROBATE VALUATION CHARGES:

  • one item schedule costs £65
  • additional items costs £20 (per item)
