Insurance & Valuations


There are many reasons why it is essential to have jewellery valued. These could be for insurance, probate, family division or sale between parties.

Even if you already have insurance cover based on a valuation given to you some time ago, it would be wise to have this reviewed due to fluctuating gold, diamond and gem prices and exchange rates. We recommend a review of your valuation is taken every 3-5 years. If Francis Wain undertook the original work, it will be carried out at a reduced cost. Our valuations are undertaken by our expert valuers in store who are registered and regulated by the NAG (National Association of Goldsmiths)

Losing a family heirloom or a gift from a loved one can be a disaster, but trying to process a claim with your insurers can be even worse. The staff at Francis Wain will guide you through the full claims process providing you with free consultations and low cost, itemised estimates for insurance replacement. Any charges you incur will be refunded if the claim is settled through us.
