Types of Jewellery Valuations
Only those specifically referred to on this page are described here
Further types will be mentioned on the Valuer's profile pages as there are several other types of valuation reports, each with its own particular wording, purpose, objectives and resulting values.
Deceased Estate (commonly requested) - Used to establish the value of a Deceased's jewellery, watches, gems, diamonds and other precious items that form part of their estate. Since there is no Inheritance Tax in Australia, the ATO are unlikely to be involved and guidance should be taken from the Executor of the Will. The cited values in this valuation represent their assessed open market worth at the date of death, this figure is then used in the settling of probate and/or distribution among heirs.
Retail Replacement (routinely requested) - Most likely used to gain cover from an insurance company, in other words, a valuation for insurance replacement. The value represents the likely cost of replacing the lost or stolen item of jewellery with an article of equal merit, usually from a jeweller. The replacement should be as a near as possible, similar in style, quality and construction. If the item is an antique, period or vintage jewel, the value may represent replacement from the secondary market (second hand), in which case the condition and desirabilty of the watch or item of jewellery becomes a value factor.
