What makes a Jewellery Valuer Independent?

The characteristics that define a truly independent Valuer, beyond a high level of professionalism, are:

  • Valuation fees are not based on the value of your possessions.
  • Our members only appraise and value your jewellery, gemstones, diamonds and watches, they do not buy, sell or broker these items.
  • Members do not accept referral commissions from retailers, insurance companies or any other agencies.
  • They are not owned by a Jeweller, Insurance Company or any other industry related agency.
