About this Valuer

Rupert has been associated with the jewellery trade for over 38 years. He began his career studying Silversmithing and Allied Crafts at Sir John Cass College of Art, London, in 1976. Then worked in the family jewellery business for 25 years progressing to manager, this involved the refurbishment of jewellery and silverware in their own in-house workshop.

Rupert added to his extensive knowledge whilst working in the repair/replacement department of a large jewellery insurance provider for four years and then for the Guild of Valuers & Jewellers, where he visited retail shops and clients' homes to value their items of jewellery and silverware.

Rupert became an Independent Valuer early in March 2015 and continues to work as the Valuer for the Goldsmiths' Hall in London, as well as working for various well known high street jewellers throughout London, Essex and Kent. Private clients can access Rupert's services directly, at his office in Colchester. This is also convenient for jewellery owners in the Ipswich and Clacton-on-Sea areas.

Because Rupert still makes some pieces in his workshop at the bottom of his garden, (Only having time to make items for friends and family only), this gives him an understanding of manufacture which is nearly unique among valuers today.
