About this Valuer

Based in the heart of London's diamond and jewellery district, Taylor & Co provide a wide range of jewellery appraisal and valuation services to private clients and larger entities. Service is also available at their satellite office in Shrewsbury. The principal, Professor Richard Taylor, offers valuations for insurance replacement and for all other purposes to private clients on jewels, diamonds, gemstones and watches. This business prides itself on its flexible, discreet service resulting in superior documentation to protect the consumer and their valuables.

Professor Taylor is very highly qualified in gemmology and jewellery appraisal, this coupled with his extensive experience in litigation and access to advanced scientific equipment means he is also well placed to offer specialised services outside the normal realms of a jewellery valuer. These include:

  • Expert Witness and Court work
  • Forensic and diagnostic analysis of gem materials
  • Audit and accounting of inventory
  • International Services

Expert Witness and Court work - Dr Taylor is frequently instructed by the Police, Revenue and Customs (HMRC), consumer protection agencies and corporate business, working for both the defence and prosecution in criminal and civil cases.

Forensic and diagnostic analysis - Understanding the physical properties and behaviour of the metals, diamonds and gemstones used in jewellery is paramount for the correct interpretation of any damage. Investigating this damage and its causes also requires expertise, experience and technical resources to be able to arrive at the correct conclusions and give the best informed and totally reliable documentation that may be used in any subsequent legal action.

Audit and accounting of inventory - Jewellery audit services offered to Accountants, Receivers, Banks and Insurance Companies.

International Services - Taylor & Co's reputation, both at home and abroad, prompts frequent instructions from international clients requiring work in Africa, USA, Europe, South America, Middle East, and Asia. Dr Taylor has extensive experience in these areas.

From carrying out a valuation for insurance on a consumer's diamond engagement ring to providing litigation support to major corporations on the international stage, Taylor & Co execute their work with the same enthusiasm, commitment, diligence and attention to detail.
