Jewellery Valuations at Wakefields

At Wakefields Jewellers we are proud to offer a comprehensive valuation service. All of our valuations are undertaken on the premises by a trusted independent valuer and are usually turned around within 1-2 weeks.

Booking In A Valuation

• We have a trusted, independent valuer who visits Wakefields every other Wednesday and completes valuations on site.

• We can book in up to 25 items for each of the valuers visit, although more items can be done by prior arrangements.

• You can book in for the service in store, by calling us on 01403 264001 or by sending an email to [email protected].

• You needs to leave your item(s) the day before the valuer visits or whenever is convenient. All items are held in the safe and insured while they are in store at Wakefields.

What to Expect

• During their visit, the valuer will take photos, make notes, measure and grade all gemstones & diamonds.

• Once this process has been completed, the jewellery can be collected later that same day.

• The valuer will send an email of a PDF copy of the valuation approximately within a week of the visit, which is then sent on to you via a password protected email.

• The hard copy (bounded folder) of the valuation is received via post from the valuer within 2 weeks. Once we have received this, we will let you know that your valuation is ready to be collected in store.

Jewellery Valuation Fees

Our fees are structured on a ‘per item’ basis rather than a percentage of the overall value. We believe this to be fairer and more ethical which, in the majority of cases, has the added benefit of knowing exactly what your valuation will cost from the outset.

All insurance valuation schedules are bound in a quality folder containing digital images of your jewellery/ watches together with a full description including stone weights and dimensions, hallmark details, gross weight and a current value. A glossary of terms used in the schedule can be found at the back of your folder to enable you to fully understand the document.
