Please note that the valuer may not be based at the address shown. A number of our IRVs are independent valuers and they provide retail jewellers who do not have a valuer on their staff with a valuation service. The IRV may not be available to speak with you at these outlets: we suggest you telephone to see if you can make an appointment.
It is suggested that you telephone the shop to check if you wish to meet or speak with the valuer personally.
Not for Insurance?
If you require a valuation for anything other than insurance replacement purposes, for example, probate, we recommend you telephone first to check the IRV is able to help you.
You should only accept a valuation prepared by the NAMED IRV found on this site and not one prepared by another person acting on behalf of the retailer. This is in accordance with Institute requirements. If you are presented with a valuation that is by a non-IRV you should refuse to accept it and ask for it to be re-done by the IRV listed.
Please note that membership of a trade association by a retailer, such as the National Association of Goldsmiths or British Jewellers' Association, does not guarantee your valuation will be undertaken by an IRV.
