Types of Jewellery Valuations
Only those specifically referred to on this page are described here
Further types will be mentioned on the Valuer's profile pages as there are several other types of valuation reports, each with its own particular wording, purpose, objectives and resulting values. For an expanded list of types, go to the Valuation Definitions page.
Divorce Settlement (rarely requested) - Used to establish the value of a married couple's jewellery, diamonds, gemstones and watches. The cited values represent the Open Market Value of the items as of the Date of Separation. This figure is appropriate to be put to the Court when jointly owned property is in dispute or the cash value is to be divided between to the two parties. The values do not include VAT.
Insurance Replacement (routinely requested) - Used to present to an insurance company prior to taking out or renewing an insurance policy. This enables them to establish their maximum financial exposure in the event of a loss. The value represents the modal retail replacement cost of an item of equal merit from the most appropriate type of source within a given broad geographic area. Whether the item is valued on a New Replacement Value (NRV) or Secondhand Replacement Value (SHRV) basis is largely dictated by the type and age of the item, although it is possible for the policy-holder and/or the insurance company to have some sway too. All values normally include VAT.
Probate (commonly requested) - Used to establish the value of a Deceased's estate to enable the calculation of Inheritance Tax due to HMRC and settling of probate. The cited values represent the open market value of the item(s) as of the Date of Death. The values do not include VAT.
Sale Between Parties (rarely requested) - Used to assist two private individuals where one is the owner and the seller, and the other is a prospective buyer. The value represents the mid-point between the Open Market Value and the Retail Replacement cost from the secondary market exclusive of VAT. This valuation can also be based on the expected sale price of the item at a public auction, exclusive of any Buyer's Premium or Seller's Commission and costs. The Valuer's intention here will be to find the fairest figure from which both parties can negotiate according to their circumstances.
There are other Valuers on JAW who assist consumers in this area but are based outside the Harrow and Wealdstone area. Please see the English Jewellery Valuers page for further options.
