Is your valuation for Insurance purposes? - If so we provide you with a bound valuation document containing detailed descriptions, values, and colour images of your jewellery prepared by an expert and qualified jewellery valuer. Please visit us at our Rose Street premises to discuss your valuation requirements.

When you bring your jewellery items for valuation, please also provide any receipts, certificates, or documents which relate to your valuables. These are important for your documentation.


Mr Tait will be happy to discuss your jewellery valuation with you in person and on request provide an estimate in advance.


Is your valuation for any other reason? - Mr Tait can also offer valuations for reasons such as Confirmation of Will, Family Division or Inheritance Tax. Please contact us in the first instance to discuss charges and details of these valuations.
