Valuation for Insurance Purposes
Gaynor undertook a very thorough examination of our gold, pearl, jade and diamond jewellery from the Far East, giving us clear explanations of what she observed. The two copies of her report were detailed, well presented and included photographs. The whole process was stress free, interesting, and unhurried, in our own home; and the fee was fair and very reasonable.
Expertise / Items Examined: Jade and diamond ring, diamond earrings, gold chains and belt
A Great Solution
Come insurance time we didn't want to trust our personal pieces to the post or a capital city gem lab, though some of them called for lab-quality assessment. I'm glad I didn't, Gaynor literally brought her lab and her skills to our home and covered everything from opal through diamond to investment watch, in three types of metal. From the first friendly contact to receipt of the official valuations this was such an easy, punctual, meticulous process. We'll definitely be back in future.
Expertise / Items Examined: Gold watch and assortment of diamond, opal and mixed gem rings.
Professional, Knowledgeable, Polite
We were searching for jewellery valuations for probate purposes and came across Gaynor's details. From the very beginning, Gaynor was extremely helpful and when she visited our house, she worked in a very professional and competent manner. Our report arrived a few days later and was nicely presented and comprehensive. Gaynor was very informative and knowledgeable and it was very interesting listening to her. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gaynor at all.
Expertise / Items Examined: A selection of jewellery.
Superb Professional Service
Having come across Gaynor when looking for a jewellery valuer in the Bedfordshire area, I instructed her to value three items of jewellery for insurance purposes. On visiting her house with my jewellery, I found her to be extremely professional and can confirm that she is able to conduct her business safely during the Covid-19 pandemic. Gaynor is a very knowledgeable and interesting lady and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her. Aside from obtaining the valuation report, it was a real pleasure to spend time with her and learn about my pieces of jewellery. A very comprehensive and well-presented report (with photographs) arrived in the post just two days after my visit. A super service - thank you Gaynor.
Expertise / Items Examined: Sapphire and Diamond cocktail ring, diamond drop earrings and a diamond solitaire platinum ring.
Recommended without hesitation
As per other reviews; it was an absolute pleasure to meet Gaynor when she came to value our jewellery and watches. Gaynor was polite, professional and thorough from my initial approach via email through to receipt of our valuation documents. I would not hesitate in recommending Gaynor for a valuation. Gaynor is well educated, experienced and knowledgeable in her field. She is so interesting, I could have chatted with her all day.
Expertise / Items Examined: Diamond jewellery and watches

Gaynor clearly has expertise in jewelry valuation and knows about the origins of jewelry. She also has a practical, friendly and helpful attitude. She came to the house to look a collection of items. She gave a quick assessment and information on everything and then carried out insurance valuations where appropriate. The detailed descriptive report with photographs arrived promptly. I would happily use Gaynor again and/or recommend her valuation services to family or friends.
Happy Client. Cambridge
I found Gaynor to be very professional from the outset. It was easy to arrange a time around my busy schedule and she made a home visit. It was clear that she is very knowledgeable in her field and was able to advise on what is valuable and should be insured vs what is not. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone with unusual or bespoke jewellery.
Peter H. St Neots
Engagement ring valued for insurance. I can only echo all the things previous reviewers have said. We had trouble finding a local valuer who was not on holiday so, nearing our insurance deadline, were relieved when we finally came across Gaynor. She came to see us at her first opportunity, did the valuation as well as looking at a number of other inherited items of little value and advising us where we would get a fair offer for them, and then very kindly got the paperwork back to us the next day, just in time for the deadline. Highly recommended!
Prompt and Efficient
I’m very pleased that I found this lady through this website. She came to our house and quickly sorted through 3 generations of jewellery for probate valuation, but also told us something of the age and design of the pieces. She quickly separated them into things worth identifying and valuing, which she grouped to further reduce the time and cost, and the rest! She then produced a very detailed report with photos to help me connect the description with the item. Very good value!

Gaynor really showed a great knowledge of all the jewellery we had valued and gave us lots of additional interesting information on certain rings and watches. Gaynor really knew her stuff.

12 items valued for insurance purposes and also my own interest... I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Gaynor explained some of the technical aspects of the valuations and demonstrated these with my pieces. This provided a valuable insight to the history, provenance and the many varying facets that can impact the valuation of a piece. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about my jewellery and the report produced was both detailed and an interesting read. I will use Gaynor again and would recommend her to anyone who requires a professional but personal valuation service.
We found Gaynor to be very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She was able to visit our home and provide a full valuation the following day. We would both recommend her to anyone wanting an open and honest valuation of jewellery.
