Valuations for all purposes are available according to your needs, these include: Valuation for Insurance, Probate, Liquidation etc. All re-valuations of this company's previous assessments are carried out at a significantly lower fee, as most of the details of the items will have already been established.

The examination of your items can be carried out at any of the following locations, by appointment only:

  • The Loughton office - You can leave your items safely and collect once the appraisal has been carried out, or if you prefer, you may wait while the inspection of your items is performed.

Your comprehensive and detailed report will follow in a few days once the research and value calculations has been completed.

She has studied with the International Gemological Institute (IGI), Institute of Diamond, Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A).

Valentina è un'esperta di gioielli impegnata a fornire servizi di valutazione personalizzati, approfonditi e soprattutto etici.

Dopo aver studiato statistica all'università e aver lavorato per diversi anni in una società di consulenza ‘Big Five’, ha deciso di seguire la sua vera passione: la gioielleria. Da allora, ha studiato in tutto il mondo, prendendosi il tempo per sviluppare una conoscenza olistica dell'industria del gioiello e per comprenderne ogni fase del percorso di lavorazione: dal concetto e design fino alla produzione e alla vendita.

In Italia - a Milano e a Roma - si è formata come orafo, disegnando e creando in prima persona pezzi originali in oro. Nel contempo ha sviluppato le competenze tecniche per riconoscere la provenienza storica e geografica di un gioiello.

Il fascino per la storia del gioiello e il suo desiderio di ampliare le sue conoscenze l'hanno portata in giro per il mondo; ha studiato diamanti, gemme e gioielli antichi presso l'Istituto Gemmologico di Anversa, Tel Aviv e Londra. Il suo percorso di apprendimento continua ancor oggi, affianco al suo lavoro - leggendo ed ampliando la sua collezione personale di libri di gioielleria, frequentando corsi di specializzazione a Londra, visitando mercatini di gioelleria antica e aste alla ricerca di pezzi interessanti da studiare o da restaurare.

Fornisce valutazioni nel suo ufficio di Loughton, Essex, a Hatton Garden presso lo studio di Tanospitfire o attraverso visite a domicilio.
