Appraisal info iconTypes 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.

Insurance Replacement Valuation (routinely requested) - To be presented to an insurance company, prior to writing the policy, to enable them to establish their maximum financial exposure in the event of a loss. The value represents the modal retail replacement cost of an item of equal merit from the most appropriate source, usually a Jeweller that regularly sells jewellery, watches or gems of that type. Whether the item is valued on the basis of a new replacement cost or a secondhand retail value is dictated by the type and age of the piece. Some Valuers in New Zealand provide both values in the same valuation report, the latter being quoted as an Indemnity Value.

You may have to look outside the Hamilton area if you require a very specialised service that may be outwith the scope of a normal gem and jewellery appraisal, or if you require a jewellery expert or Gemmologist to travel to another country. Appraisal services such a jeweller's stock audit, Capital Gains assessments and certain types of evaluation for investigations by the Inland Revenue are handled by specialists on JAW but they may not necessarily be featured on this page.
Please see the New Zealand Jewellery Valuers page for more options.
