We are pleased to announce our Jewellery and Watch Valuation drop off service. This service means you can drop off your precious jewellery items at our head office at the Birmingham Assay Office, Monday - Friday between 9 am and 12 pm

Insurance companies require jewellery valuations to be updated every 3 years.  To be fully insured, your jewellery items will need to be listed separately on your contents insurance policy.  If you are in the unfortunate situation where you need to make a claim following, loss damage or theft, an up-to-date valuation is paramount in ensuring a claim can be settled accurately.

Precious items such as jewellery can fluctuate in value, which is why it is important to keep your valuations up-to-date.

Why choose us?

SafeGuard is the UK's leading Jewellery and Watch valuation service.  Determining the value of a piece of jewellery, a watch or an article of silverware, requires a great deal of skill and experience.

Working diligently using industry best practice methods, with access to the latest gemmological equipment, SafeGuard’s expert valuers carefully examine  your jewellery, watches or silverware and  provide you with a professional, independent and impartial valuation every time.
