About this Valuer

Julian is a warm, friendly and approachable jewellery appraiser who also knows his stuff. In other words, he’s just the sort of person you would want to invite into your home and to entrust your jewellery valuation. This is his great benefit - home visits in London, Kent and Sussex - so you don’t have to leave your jewellery at a jeweller’s shop, or sit in a draughty waiting room for a few hours. He’ll come to you, examine and appraise your jewellery, gemstones and diamonds in the comfort and security of your own home, and your valuation (both hard copy and PDF) will follow a few days’ later.

He is an experienced jeweller with 25 years in Fine Jewellery retailing under his belt and now, as an independent jewellery valuer, is held in high regard by his fellow professional appraisers. Comfortable with high value jewellery from the great houses - Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels - he is also just as at home with granny’s engagement ring, and pleased to advise on all aspects of jewellery care and ownership.

Whether you need a jewellery valuation for Insurance, Probate (Inheritance Tax Assessment or Confirmation of Will), Family Division, or Post Loss Assessment, Julian’s the man to ask. With a degree in Fine Art and Antique (Jewellery) Valuation, Fellowship and Committee Membership of the Institute of Registered Valuers, Fellowship and Diamond Membership of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A), Membership of the National Association of Jewellers, Associate Membership of the Academy of Experts, and Founder Membership of the Academy of Valuers, his qualifications speak for themselves.

An accomplished and experienced gemmologist, Julian is also a published authority on antique silver and his research is referenced by the British Museum: Pierre Harache I (Biographical details)

On top of all this, he’s a thoroughly decent chap. You’ll enjoy spending a bit of time with him. Use the contact links at the top of this page outlining what you need and he’ll get back to you pretty quickly. Oh, you might not want to ask him about watches though... he’s a jewellery professional through and through.

Very Friendly & Professional Service

The item was a diamond solitaire ring. From the initial conversation to receipt of the bound valuation, the service provided was friendly and professional. The website provided information that was relevant and useful. Contact with Julian by telephone and email was easy so that arrangements were made efficiently and quickly. As it was necessary to meet a deadline required by the insurers the initial pdf copy of the valuation was sent simultaneously to me and to the broker as soon as it was ready. The bound and printed copy of the valuation was of excellent quality and well presented.

Friendly, Knowledgable, Professional

Julian was outstanding from our very first enquiry, he replied quickly and was able to fit us in for a valuation at short notice and around our busy schedule. Julian is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He was happy to answer all of our questions and would patiently explain everything to us in great detail. He took his time to ensure a thorough and accurate valuation was given for each of the items and this was beautifully presented when returned to us. We highly recommend Julian, and will most certainly be using him again in the future.
