Is your Jewellery adequately insured? Find out with Forum…

The best way to protect your jewellery in the event of loss or damage is to insure it. To insure pieces for the right value requires a valuation from an Institute Registered Valuer. You can trust Forum Jewellers across our entire range of jewellery services – whether you’re looking to redesign a family heirloom or bring a piece back to its former glory.


Jewellery & Watch Valuation Services

By having a detailed valuation schedule, it will enable you to:

  • Check that the replacement is of comparable quality and value to the original.
  • Enable a very similar item to be purchased or manufactured.
  • Professional description if the item is recovered by the police.
  • Provide a checklist, so that everything lost or stolen can be claimed for.
  • Show that on the date stated, the item existed and was examined by the signatory.
  • Ensure that in the event of any disagreement with the insurance company or loss adjusters you have a firm foundation on which to base your case.


Detailed Valuation Service

A jewellery valuation carried out through Forum Jewellers in Broadstone, Poole will provide you with exactly the details you need. A quality jewellery valuation service is prepared by a Fellow of The Institute of Registered Valuers working to the National Association of Goldsmith’s code of practice and is independently regulated to ensure that established high standards are maintained.

Please check with your insurance company for the single article limit they require to be listed on your schedule before you bring in your precious items for valuation.

Generally, items under £1,000.00 are not required to be listed; therefore, our Valuer will show these as a total value and in abbreviated form.

Our Registered Valuer visits us once a month, please contact us for the next available date and to register your interest.

How much does it cost?

The charge which includes the examination, printed document and photographs is £150.00 for the first item and £50 per additional item you have valued.  So 2 items will be charged at £200 and 3 items charged at £250.00.
