At Plant the Jewellers we offer a professional, comprehensive on site jewellery valuation service. We offer valuation schedules for the following purposes:

  • Valuations for insurance
  • Probate
  • Valuation for private sale
  • Family division and divorce
  • Valuation for loan security

At Plants we are fortunate enough to have Mrs Plant as our fully qualified jewellery appraiser, whom is a Fellow of the Institute Of Registered Valuers, and also a qualified gemmologist and diamond grader. She offers a wealth of knowledge gained from over 30 years within the jewellery trade.

We offer a free verbal consultation to discuss your jewellery appraisal requirements.

All of our valuations are carried out on the premises and all items are fully insured while they are with us.

Our prices are competitive and are charged on a fixed price per item basis and are as follows:

  • First Item £60.00 plus VAT
  • Every additional item £30 plus VAT
  • Special items with particular antiquity or rarity will be quoted for.

Valuations take 1 to 2 weeks to complete dependent on the items. For a same day service please phone in advance to make an appointment, please note that a same day service is only available for five items or less.


We also offer a home visit valuation service, if it is not convenient for you to bring your jewellery in to the shop, we can visit your home, bank, solicitors, office or place of work. Please phone for an individual quote as there will be an extra charge for this service.

It is absolutely paramount to have your jewellery valued by an Institute Registered Valuer regularly depending on your insurance providers recommendations (this is usually every three years). Most insurance providers will only accept a professional valuation produced by a valuer from the Institute Of Registered Valuers.
