Brilliant Valuation

I can’t recommend Stephanie highly enough. She is an exceptionally talented gemologist. Her attention to detail and the time taken creating my ring valuation was excellent. Stephanie is fast, efficient, easy to work with and friendly all at a very reasonable price. The level of detail included in the valuation is excellent value for money. I will be recommending Stephanie to all my friends and in the future will not hesitate to use her again.

Excellent Service

Stephanie Dowthwaite valued 3 items of mine. The assessment of my jewellery was done in front of me so I didn't have to go without my jewellery. The final document was sent to me very quickly. The valuation document is very through with clear pictures and detailed descriptions. The descriptions are easy to read and understand and my insurance company even stated what a good valuation it was. Overall I am completely satisfied with my experience and have to mention what a friendly and informative person Stephanie is.
