After calling a number of places for a very last minute bespoke engagement ring valuation with no luck, I eventually emailed Patricia, albeit rather hesitantly at first with her being advertised as an independent rather than an official shop. She responded almost immediately and was able to provide a 24 hour turnaround (it could have been quicker if I'd have got there sooner!). It also turned out that Patricia values for a number of the big jewellery stores, including the ones I had been calling - they send the jewellery to her.
I had absolutely no need to be worried as Patricia was extremely professional and fully reassured me when I dropped the ring at her home office (it was a weekend). Upon collection she provided me with an official certificate inclusive of her own accreditations/qualifications, which was a requirement for my insurer, plus an email copy that I was able share with the insurer electronically. Thanks so much!!
Expertise / Items Examined: Diamond engagement ring.
Patricia recently did an appraisal for my wife who had bought a ruby and diamond ring whilst on holiday in the Caribbean. The service Patricia delivered was excellent. She was very professional, knowledgeable and provided us with her report within a couple of days. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Negus Jewellery Valuations.
Valuation of Three Items of Jewellery
I would not hesitate to recommend this service to anyone. The valuations were prompt and efficient and the company were a pleasure to deal with. My jewellery had kindly been bequeathed me and I had three of the rings appraised primarily for insurance purposes. The valuation schedule and the jewellery arrived back with me promptly and safely.
A Very Professional Service
I was directed to Patricia by a mutual acquaintance. Being local I felt she was best placed to value my engagement ring. I was over the moon with the knowledge, service, professionalism, quality of the report and the value for money of the overall valuation.
I will most certainly use her services again and will not hesitate to recommend her to others. Thank you Patricia.
One Hundred Percent Satisfied
I was referred to Patricia by another professional appraiser,and from start to finish the service she provided was first class.
Our first contact was a telephone conversation during which Patricia explained all the aspects of having jewellery valued and responded to all my queries confidently and in a friendly manner. Some of the items I sent her were somewhat complicated in terms of provenance, but she approached the task at hand intuitively and conscientiously. The actual valuations when they arrived were comprehensive and professionally presented. Her fees represented extremely good value for money.
