...about the Institute of Registered Valuers


The National Association of Jewellers is the trade body formed by the unification of the British Jewellers’ Association (established in 1887) and the National Association of Goldsmiths (established in 1894).  The Association represents the jewellery industry by promoting, protecting and providing for the industry.  We inspire consumer confidence to purchase from our members through a Code of Conduct setting the highest standards of professionalism, honesty and ethical business practices.  

  • Concerned about valuations the Council of the N.A.G. set up a Working Party in 1987 to comprehensively examine valuation activity.
  • This resulted in the formation of the N.A.G. Registered Valuer Scheme (the forerunner of the Institute). It established and maintained high standards in jewellery and silver valuations.
  • Registration was only granted to those in the jewellery trade who had the necessary knowledge, experience and equipment to undertake work to the exacting standards demanded by the then N.A.G.

In 2008 the Association developed the valuations scheme into the Institute of Registered Valuers - a professionally recognised body giving valuations and valuers a higher profile and recognition.

All IRVs follow the NAJ Principles of Good Practice for Valuers.
