About this Appraiser

Annabell Parry GA-Cert, PJDip, MIRV, BA (Hons) founded Fairmind to give her clients what they actually want. Effective, well researched, independent valuations at a fair price.

Her services include valuations for insurance, market valuations for sale, probate, family division (divorce) and sale between private parties.

Fairmind provide their appraisal services by appointment only from their office and laboratory within an historical building in central Chester. They also offer flexible home or work place visits in and around beautiful Chester, Cheshire and North Wales. They use an extensive and portable set of specialist instruments to capture all the necessary information on site including photography, before creating and sending the final valuation document one week later.

The daughter of an auctioneer and valuer, she has professionally worked in the jewellery industry since 1995 where her work has revolved around antique, vintage and modern jewellery and branded watches. Coupled with internationally recognised industry qualifications she continues to answer the questions of her clients and advise them effectively.
Jewellery is often some of the most treasured items a client can own. Keeping them repaired and their information up to date means they can be cherished by the next generation too.

Professional valuation work continues to grow in importance as more and more insurance companies and jewellery shops recognise the powerful protection of a professional valuation.

Fairmind would be delighted to hear from you by email or phone with your valuation requirements and discuss how best to help with your own individual situation. You can contact Annabell by using the contact links at the top of this page.

So Very Grateful

Despite difficult circumstances- personal for me and Covid restrictions - Annabell has been a ‘Gem’.
Her expertise, professional and courteous approach throughout and her genuine interest in unusual items, supported me so much during sad times of probate.

The Best Money I have Spent

I had an hour-long jewellery box review done. I had several items looked at which included some modern and antique items.

Excellent and Prompt Service

We require my wife’s engagement ring to be valued and have its condition checked every 3 years as part of our insurance contract. Annabell was prompt at replying and scheduling a convenient appointment at a location in Chester that was easy to find and park. She assessed the ring quickly and confidently allowing me to do some work whilst I waited for her to finish which didn’t take long at all. The report arrived the next day and all in all was an excellent service, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Annabell to anyone else.

Expertise / Items Valued: Diamond engagement ring.

What a Fantastic Service

When I asked Fairmind to appraise my ring I thought it was a valuable diamond - sadly it wasn't! This unpleasant finding would have been a lot worse without the professionalism and service provided by Annabell who helped so much. She visited twice just to ensure that her assessment was correct, and then provided a great report to help me rectify the problem. Annabell went out of her way to support me, going above and beyond and even offered to speak to the vendor. I hope to use her service again soon - in happier circumstances! What a fantastic service.

Perfect Service

Knowing absolutely nothing about diamonds and jewellery, it was an absolute pleasure to meet Annabell who helped us value our new engagement ring. The personal approach and expertise Annabell has made us feel really comfortable using her service to value our ring. I have already recommended Annabell to many of my family and clients.

The Personal Touch. Thorough & Professional

Annabell is very personable whilst also showing great professionalism. She is obviously very knowledgeable but also took a personal interest in the story behind our meeting. I had my mother’s wedding and engagement ring valued for probate but also had a diamond ring valued that was a gift to me from my grandmother. Annabell’s advice, expertise and enthusiasm was invaluable. I subsequently had my mum’s engagement ring set into a pendant and my grandma’s ring altered to fit my finger. I would recommend Annabell to any of my friends wishing for valuation services.
