In recent years, fluctuations in the metals and diamond markets have meant that it is essential that jewellery valuations be kept up to date.  Many insurance companies insist on items over a certain value to be specified individually on the policy.  Whether for insurance or personal reasons, Lance James is able to help with providing you with an valuation that is totally independent.

We use an independent valuer who is a member of the Institute of Registered Valuers (IRV) for the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ), which is recognised by all insurance companies.  The valuation documentation includes a detailed description, a colour image together with an insurance replacement value.  

INSURANCE VALUATION FEE (including VAT) £100 for one item (diamonds under 1ct) 

£30 for each additional item


Please call or visit one of our stores for more information.  Alternatively, you can email us on
