Personal Touch

I was recommended by a family member who has used Treasured Valuations services before. I got in contact with the lovely Raji and explained I required an insurance appraisal. I was in the city and Raji kindly came to meet with me. Raji is very professional, knowledgable and she explained in detail the importance of the appraisal document. Raji checked the setting of my diamond ring, took photos, checked the dimension and weight of my ring and assured me the appraisal document would be with me very promptly in which it was. I was very happy with my appraisal and the services Raji has provided me and will defiantly use Treasured Valuations again in the future. A very lovely lady.

Exceptionally Knowledgeable & Great Service

We found Treasured Valuations through an online search, and were nervous as we had never had our jewellery professionally valued before, so we didn't know what to expect. Thankfully, Raji was very professional and incredibly knowledgeable about what she does so we were put at ease immediately.

Raji came to our house to carry out valuations for various pieces of jewellery, photographed and carried out the inspection and measurements then and there, meaning that our precious items didn't need to leave the house. She followed up by sending us very detailed reports of our jewellery, including stunning photography, confirming the condition of the items.

Exceeded Expectation

I contacted treasured valuation through Google search, I spoke to raji and felt very comfortable after our telephone conversation. It was a very professional and personal experience having her at my house, as I was able to explain everything in detail.

The greatest heart felt experience was that I had the valuation in the comfort of my own home and did not have the pressure of having to take it out of the safe in order to get it valued. Would definitely recommend raji to my friends and family.

Professional Valuation Service

My family requested me to get a valuation of my fathers collection of watches that he had collected over the years and get their true value. From the initial telephone contact to my home visit Raji put me at ease straight away that I had made the right choice, and as a family we were impressed with professionalism and compassion shown. The detailed report and pictures given was excellent. I will definitely recommend to friends on the high level of service received.

Top Notch and Thoroughly Professional

We had a small collection of inherited jewellery as well as our own rings appraised by Raji. She was absolutely meticulous and patient when explaining some of the items. We were pleasantly surprised by the valuation which meant we were under-insured. The report was detailed including excellent photos. I would highly recommend Raji to anyone who are looking to get their jewellery and watches valued.

Faultless Service - Exceeded All Expectations

Raji's level of service exceeded my expectations. From the initial point of contact through to delivery of the final document, Raji's service level and professionalism was faultless. Raji is a very knowledgeable lady and is very passionate about her field, and it was a pleasure inviting her to my home to value my jewellery and watches (a big bonus as it avoided taking it all out with me to get it valued elsewhere). I would recommend her services without hesitation to friends and family.

Look No Further - Very Professional & Knowledgeable

I was given a gold ring over 35 years ago by a very special Aunt and I had always wondered what the stone was and curious to know its value. I would never have left it at any jewellers or had it sent off somewhere. To have found Raji's services was an absolute joy. Having submitted my enquiry I had a very friendly conversation with Raji who gave a clear indication of her services. The report she produced well exceeded my expectations and the photographs are simply stunning. Highly recommended and now I have all my answers.

Excellent Service, Communication & Report

Raji from Treasured Valuations Ltd came to see us in May 2021 to value some jewellery and watches. We were amazed at her in depth knowledge and professionalism from the outset.

Raji carried out an in depth valuation, took her time to explain every little bit of detail with her tools and her vast industry knowledge. After a few days, we received the valuation report which is just amazing as it captures all the finite details of each item, picture etc. Our insurance company were 100% satisfied with this report.

We'd highly recommend Raji from Treasured Valuations Ltd for all types of jewellery and watch appraisals, and we'll definitely be using her again. Highly recommended!

A Pleasure to Work With - Very Professional

Jewellery which had not been valued for many years including rings, necklaces and bracelets with various stones, diamonds, sapphires, pearls, emeralds.
I knew some were of value but no idea about some. Raji was extremely patient, clearly knew her job and gave very clear explanations. I had absolute trust in her. Where she was uncertain she said she would verify and did so within a very few days as well as obtaining a new butterfly for me. Her report with excellent photographs is very professional and clearly set out. She made it very clear that she could be contacted for elucidation. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her.

Earring Valuation Review

Treasured Valuations was referred to me by a recommended jeweller where I had diamond earrings valuated by Raji. She had provided a detailed report that surpassed my expectations as well as explaining each section of the report. Even though this was the first time using her service, I had trust in her as she is a highly qualified and skilled valuator. I highly recommend Treasured Valuations to anyone, who wants a professional yet detailed report on any jewellery you may have.

Jewellery Report

I'm so glad I came across Raji at Treasured Valuations. I've been meaning to get my remaining jewellery pieces valued but I didn't trust leaving my wedding ring with the jeweller. Raji came to my house and valued everything without them leaving my property. I am pretty gobsmacked at how valuable some of the pieces are. Subsequently I realised my contents insurance was inadequate. The report is very detailed and has the pieces well pictured. I wish I had this when I had a burglary 2 years ago. As I didn't have any receipts or images, the insurance company never paid out. I will be going back to value the rest of my remaining jewellery.

Expertise / Items Examined: My engagement ring, husband's wedding ring and 2 bracelets.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Reliable and Highly Recommended.

Having a home visit service was invaluable to me, as I didn't want to leave or travel with my items anywhere. Raji's service was ideal. It was great to see her examine the items right in front of me. The document I received was really detailed and the photographs are beautiful. She's knowledgeable and advised me on a few things. Highly recommend and will definitely be using her again and recommending my family & friends.

Outstanding, Detail and Quality

I was referred to Raji's services and asked her to produce a valuation certificate for a Diamond engagement ring, diamond wedding ring and a diamond eternity ring (all in platinum). I must admit, at first I was not quite sure what to expect in terms of the details and information in the report but WOW the quality from start to finish of the report that Raji produces was simply amazing. I can guarantee that there is not a single person who will be able to produce a more detailed report than Raji. I have had previous reports made by companies in Hatton Garden, however they do not come remotely close to what Raji does. It's like comparing an ant to a Lion! She is different class.

She even went the extra mile and provides different images from diverse angles of each ring, plus the spec of every stone to granular detail. Very very impressive. Such a lovely lady as well. Would highly recommend!

Professional Courteous. Knowledgeable

Have to say Raji was fantastic from start to finish and really knows her stuff - both jewellery and watches. I initially only wanted my Omega collection valuing for insurance purposes but seeing as Raji knows about fine jewellery as well, I've had all my (wife's) diamond rings and jewellery valued and I was amazed how out of date my old values were and how much things have gone up by and most of all Raji took the time to explain everything properly. The documentation and photography was a great job too. I will use you again in the future and recommend you to my friends and colleagues. Thanks for a great service.

I felt very safe discussing my personal belongings with Raji, and felt she was respectful and honest. If you're looking for an expert with integrity, who won't let you down, Raji is the right woman for you.

No One Better Than Treasured Valutions

I spoke with Raji when she first got qualified! I watched her go through all of the training to get to where she is now. I know from seeing this that it was no easy task, therefore I invested in Raji to complete insurance valuations for my treasured possessions. From start to finish, I was kept updated on the progress and asked very informative questions which I didn't know were necessary! Fortunately some of my possessions have increased in value, and it was only because of Raji's knowledge that I found out you can insure for a grey market price! Raji left no stone unturned and provided me with an incredibly professional document which is flawless!

If you're looking for a valuation, honestly look no further! I can't express how knowledgeable Raji is, but hopefully this review will give everyone an idea.

Expertise / Items Examined: Two Tudor watches, one Rolex watch and a diamond cross.
