About this Valuer

Carmen Garcia-Carballido specialises in gemstone jewellery and provides cost-effective jewellery valuation services for the purposes of: Insurance, Confirmation of Will, Division of Assets, Sale by Private Treaty, Cash Liquidation and Loan Security. She can also assist with an insurance claim should you lose an ‘un-valued’ precious jewel by providing you with a Post Loss Assessment Report. Operating throughout the Aberdeenshire area, she provides impartial assessments, independent from any jeweller or insurance company.

All the appraisals are carried out by Carmen, who is an experienced qualified and award-winning Geologist & Gemmologist, and has passed the Certificate of Appraisal Theory by the UK’s Institute of Registered Valuers. She travels to meet clients and provides a free quotation of her valuation fee. Once the client agrees to go ahead with the valuation, the customer will be provided with a descriptive receipt of the items to be valued. The items will be returned to the client within a few days together with the valuation report. The valuer can also work at the client’s location on request, but some gemmological testing may need to be done at the valuer’s premises. Carmen provides a complimentary clean of your jewels and instructions on the care of your jewellery.

Carmen can issue gemmological identification reports, including diamond grading reports (following the GIA classification) and can advise customers before they purchase any jewel or loose gemstones. She is also available to do educational talks on gemstones.

Carmen operates through a Scottish registered company called Asturalba Ltd. (Registered Company number 427215). She charges per item and can accept payment in cash or by BACS transfer, within 7 days of the client receiving the invoice. As Asturalba Ltd. is a small business, it is not required to charge any VAT
