With appointments available seven days a week, including evening visits, they strive to provide a valuation at a time that suits you. Based in Crawley, West Sussex, they serve the surrounding areas, including parts of Kent, Surrey and London.

Gemmologist, Karra Ellison, fuses years of trade experience with a plethora of Gemmological and Diamond qualifications, to deliver a friendly and approachable service. As a proud member of the Institute of Registered Valuers, offering highly detailed and methodical valuations that are consistently on point is essential to her ethos, career and business.

Karra is also an accredited Open Distance Learning Tutor for the Gemmological Association of Great Britain, covering their FGA and DGA, which are essential diplomas in the world of Jewellery and Valuing. This passion for education goes hand in hand with explaining and simplifying the trade, helping clients to understand more about the service provided and their items.

As their name suggests, they aim to make obtaining and receiving a valuation hassle-free and understandable. They will discuss your needs at the point of initial enquiry, to ascertain the right type of valuation required. They cover valuations for Insurance, Probate, Family Division, Private Sale and Capital Gains Tax. They handle the appraisal of all types of Jewellery, Watches, Silverware, Flatware and loose Diamonds and Gemstones.

This company has a clear pricing structure, with fees based on item types, rather than by a percentage of total value or time taken. This ensures that there is no bias to increase the value of your jewellery, or to take longer to value it, which would in turn increase the charge presented to you. There are no hidden fees or extras, and they always provide a free estimate before an appointment is confirmed.

Brilliant Heart-shaped Diamond Valuation

Karra served a very professional and polished presentation made a bit more complicated as we had to go abroad in the middle of it.

Expertise / Items Valued: Diamond heart-shaped ring.

Flexible & Fast Service

Karra made time to see us on a Saturday at the time that suited us, and at short notice due to urgency of appointment. She turned around the valuation faster than expected, which was great. She was professional, polite and provided everything we needed. Brilliant service

Quick & Efficient

Having never had any jewellery valued before, It was helpful that Karra explained each stage of the process and answered all my questions. I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to my friends.

Karra has provided an excellent service whereby she attended my home, valued an engagement ring - required by my insurer- and produced a professional and well put together document in a fast and efficient manner. I’d highly recommend her and will have the item reappraised by her in 3 years. Thank you Karra!

Professional and Efficient

Karra recently appraised a diamond ring and a diamond tennis bracelet for me. I am in the industry myself and I found her to be knowledgable and professional throughout. Her report was detailed, accurate and given in an efficient and timely manner and I would have no hesitation recommending her. I will be using her in future on both a personal and professional level.

Friendly Professional and Accurate Valuation

I needed to have a watch and a ring valued for insurance purposes at short notice. Karra attended out house within one day. She provided a fantastic service, not only valuing the ring and watch but also offering insight and tips around servicing and care.

The valuation report was accurate and clear and sent within the day. 5-star service and an all round lovely person!

Excellent and Professional Service

I asked Karra to provide a valuation for probate purposes of the various items of jewellery from my mother’s estate. Karra visited my house and examined and valued all the jewellery and other valuables. She was a kind enough to answer my questions about a couple of the items. The Valuation Report was clear, informative and delivered promptly. Her fee was very reasonable considering the time taken and expertise required. Overall, I was very impressed indeed.

Three valuations were arranged through a local family jewellers. They highly recommended Karra and I am not disappointed. I inherited two family engagement rings and took the opportunity to update a twenty year old modern ring. I now have three detailed valuations including pictures. They are well documented, well presented and my insurance company is very pleased. All for such a very reasonable cost. Re-evaluations are offered at reduced price so I will be making use of this service again in a timely fashion as I hadn't realised how much I had under insured these sentimental items.

Fabulous Service!

Karra provided a very efficient service. She came to my home to perform a valuation which meant I did not have to leave home or part with the item of jewelry concerned. She conducted the valuation process in a thorough and professional way. I was very interested to observe the procedures involved and she was patient and informed in dealing with my questions. She has an engaging personality and a key interest in her profession, demonstrated by the effort she has expended in obtaining her various qualifications. She produced the comprehensive valuation report in the time frame promised and offered to answer any follow up questions if any. This was not necessary.
