JEWELLERY VALUATIONS FOR INSURANCE

Posted on October 15, 2015 by Jan Neville Jordan | 0 Comments

Don’t wait until you have been burgled or have lost your jewellery. Protect your precious items with a current jewellery valuation. You need to make sure you have the right type of independent valuation for your insurance requirements. An independent valuer should not be the seller, or have any other financial interest in the items.

Find a valuer who is recognised by the insurance industry.

We suggest you have the jewellery polished and cleaned for a small fee prior to this, for a better and more accurate valuation.

Check your policy to see if any of  your jewellery items must be itemised/listed separately, read the fine print on your policy.

Take photos of all your items, even the jewellery which does not require a valuation – you will need to provide proof of ownership should you ever have to make a claim.

 

HOW TO MAKE A BANGLE FROM OLD GOLD

Posted on August 18, 2015 by Jan Neville Jordan | 0 Comments

If you have old broken chains or gold jewellery that is past its best, why not ask us to turn it into a bangle.
The gold is melted under intense heat in a crucible, then poured into a mould to create a bullet of gold which is then passed through various rollers under pressure to form the bangle wire. The jeweller will then join the bangle wire to the correct size, and hand polish the bangle to a high finish.

APRIL BIRTHSTONE IS DIAMOND

Posted on April 02, 2015 by Jan Neville Jordan | 0 Comments

Definitely a girl's best friend. Diamonds are the ultimate gift for a loved one as they are the symbol of eternal love.

When choosing a Diamond ring, look at the quality of the construction e.g. is it too lightweight underneath the setting, do the claws look strong, is the band sturdy enough for daily wear, do the stones shine or are they dull?

Excellent Cut or Very Good Cut will ensure the brightness of the diamonds even if the colour grade and clarity maybe down the scale a little. Here are samples of two clusters with the same amount of diamond in them .25ct (1/4 Carat).

Which one would you choose as most suitable for your lifestyle?
