About this Association
The Jewellery Valuers Association (JVA) is the only fully independent membership organisation in the UK and Ireland focusing entirely on the appraisal and valuation of jewellery, diamonds, gemstones, watches and silver. Founded in early 2020 by some of the UK's most qualified and experienced expert valuers, this new trade association aims to raise, maintain and monitor jewellery appraisal standards in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
This trade organisation believes that creating professional jewellery valuations is a great responsibility and must be carried out by a fully trained, experienced professional with expert knowledge, skills, equipment and resources. To this end, the JVA assists its members with training and continued professional development to enhance their knowledge and expertise. These exceptional standards and their member’s services are promoted to the public, insurance industry and legal profession.
Full Valuing Member level (MJVA)
This requires the member to have a minimum of 5 years jewellery trade experience and internationally recognised gemmological qualifications, evidence of diamond grading training and successful completion of appraisal and valuation theory training in addition to having their work scrutinised by the JVA Registration Panel.
Fellowship level (FJVA)
The highly respected Fellow of the Jewellery Valuers Association (FJVA) status can only be achieved after significant time, dedication and skill has been demonstrated and the Full Valuing membership level has been held for a minimum of 3 years. The candidate is also required to successfully complete the JVA Monitoring Programme.
In addition to membership and fellowship levels for professional valuers, the JVA also offers membership options for:

In the short time that I have been a member of the JVA, one notable observation is how quickly they respond to everything. Adjustments to my listing in the ‘Find a Jewellery Valuer’ area or the corresponding jewellers' listings are jumped on nearly immediately. Their member service rating is top notch. Thank you.
