Why jewellery valuations are worthwhile

Jewellery valuation in Sydney

Call Karen at (612) 9232 1611 and receive expert advice from one of the most experienced Jewellery Valuers in Sydney!

Did you know that in Australia insurance companies do not accept any valuations that are over two years old? And most valuations are prepared for insurance companies and estates.

Have you switched to JewelCover yet?

If you buy your jewellery from a member of the JAA — the Jewellers Association of Australia — then JewelCover, underwritten by Chubb Insurance, is their comprehensive standalone jewellery insurance policy. JewelCover is 24/7, worldwide and covers accident, loss and damage.

Do not be blinded by sentimentality: jewellery increases or decreases in value like any other asset and valuations should be realistic and cover the replacement cost of each item

Pieces of jewellery are not only beloved items of beauty, they are also important assets – and assets have a true value beyond sentimentality. Jewellery forms a part of the security you are building for your future, and as such you need to have it appraised regularly in order to reflect its value in your portfolio. The last thing you want is to lose a piece and then find that it is insured for considerably less than its current value – and for this you need to seek the advice of an expert in the field.

Insist on detailed descriptions

Estimates are the preserve of the experts, jewellers with many years of experience in the sale and purchase of gems, and these are the people to whom you should turn in order to obtain honest updates on the current value of your pieces.

It is your responsibility to prove worth and ownership

Few jewellers in Australia are more highly respected than Karen Lindley, who has been in the trade for almost 40 years now and specialises in diamonds, opals and wonderful settings. With an office located in the heart of Sydney, at 428 George Street, Karen is available to provide clients with fair valuations for insurance and estate purposes and also to advise on how best to care for those treasured pieces that mean so much to you.

Remember, don’t keep your jewellery, proof of purchase and valuation documents in the same place

Contact Karen or give her a call on (612) 9232 1611 to make an appointment. With her comprehensive knowledge of gemstones and her helpful and positive personality, you won’t regret it! Put your mind at rest in the knowledge that you are receiving expert attention and valuations.

And remember, all valuations should be done by a member of the National Council of Jewellery Valuers, highly skilled experts trained in providing accurate assessments of all types of jewellery.
