JEWELLERY & DIAMONDS
We lend on all types of fine jewellery, gemstones and diamonds, whether it is a ring, a necklace, a string of pearls or a bracelet.
We appraise jewellery according to its maker, brand, precious metals and stones. As many pieces of fine jewellery are unique, it is always worth contacting us to get a specific quote on a particular item, whether it is an antique heirloom or more recent purchase.
Jewellery Brand - Names such as Aspinall, Chopard, Graff, Bulgari, Cartier, Tiffany, Piaget, Mikimoto, Van Cleef & Arpels retain significant market value.
Type of Metal – Platinum, white or rose gold, palladium or other. We consider the weight of the precious metal and gemstones in calculating valuations.
For diamonds, we use the four standard measurements of Cut, Clarity, Carat and Colour.
For other precious stones, we judge on the type and quality of the gemstone and any similar certification or provenance. If your item has any certification that came with it, then we encourage you to bring that along with the piece.
As we assess your jewellery we will recommend any care we think would enhance or protect its value. Once it is with us, it will be placed in its own protective box and space within a secure safe and insured to its full market value for the duration of its stay with us.
