As a member Institute of Registered Valuers (MIRV) and National Council of Jewellery Valuers (NJCV), Katherine has been trained in providing accurate assessments of all types of jewellery. A detailed report is essential when claiming insurance for lost, stolen or damaged items, and when seeking a fair price at a sale. A valuation can also be useful in the following instances : probate, new replacement value, auction reserves, second hand sales, deceased estate appraisals, divorce property settlement.
As a member of the IRV and NCJV Katherine can provide an assessment that is based on accredited education.
Our KAB jewellery valuation reports come printed on high quality acid free paper including cover with a detailed description of your jewellery, a clear digital photograph, schedule and signature.
We will ask you to bring any previous documents, reports, certificates. These enable the valuer to record relevant information in your new valuation document. Often stones are weighed before setting and reports/certificates will have this information recorded.
