Having a piece of jewellery redesigned can be a very rewarding process. Whether you have slightly adjusted the design of the piece or gone for an entire overhaul, you are probably wondering how the value of the jewellery has changed. My question to you is, what is the value of it if it's just gathering dust and not being worn?
There are many different reasons as to why you may need a jewellery valuation. As well as plain curiosity, you may also be considering selling your jewellery and want to price it fairly. You can use a professional valuation to prove to the buyer that your jewellery is worth the price you are asking for. You may also be insuring your jewellery - an essential move for those higher value pieces. Insurers will ask for a valuation of the jewellery to be insured prior to validating your policy. Getting this figure wrong could prove very costly in the unfortunate event your jewellery is lost or stolen. Roseanna Croft Jewellery will always give an insurance valuation after every piece is made.
For every Antiques Roadshow style surprise valuation, there are many more disappointments. If your piece of jewellery has sentimental value, you may be disheartened to discover it is not worth what you initially thought. Rather than selling your precious piece, commissioning a redesign from Roseanna Croft Jewellery may be a more acceptable option for you. Redesigning a piece of jewellery can potentially be a great alternative if you are looking to increase its valuation or at least wear it again.
It is good practice to have your jewellery valuation carried out by a knowledgeable jewellery appraiser. Instructing an expert to carry out your valuation will give you the peace of mind that only comes with qualification and experience. The valuation process is a very meticulous one. Each aspect of your jewellery will be thoroughly scrutinised, assessed, identified, measured, weighed and photographed before a valuation can finally be produced.
Roseanna Croft Jewellery can help you with every step of your valuation journey. We work closely with a jewellery appraiser and are happy to provide an initial valuation free of charge. The price of a professional valuation with our registered valuer starts at £100.
One fact about valuation is that if your jewellery is gathering dust in a drawer, it has next to no value at all. Jewellery is made to be worn so increase the value of your jewellery instantly by wearing it or having it redesigned to your taste.
