The criteria we look at when appraising any piece of fine jewellery are detailed below.

VALUING YOUR COLLECTION
When appraising jewellery and precious stones the New Bond Street Pawnbrokers team takes the following into account:
MANUFACTURER – Brand or manufacturer is naturally very important, along with whether the piece bears a signature. Among many others, we will consider pieces from classic and contemporary jewellery houses such as: Boodles, Graff, Bvlgari, Van Cleef and Arpel, Cartier, Tiffany and Co., Shaun Leane, Stephen Webster, Boucheron, Buccellati, Chaumet and Lalique.
MATERIAL – Fine jewellery is conventionally made from a grade of yellow, white, platinum or rose gold.
GEMSTONES – There are many contributing factors that help us establish the value of precious gemstones. We combine our extensive industry experience with certificates of authenticity to determine the value of your collection. Some gemstone characteristics like weight are tangible; others like clarity, colour or origin can be less straightforward to determine.
Many fine gemstones, especially diamonds, are now accompanied by a laboratory report listing the colour, cut, clarity and weight. They may also contain information about treatments or origin.
While they may not always be entirely necessary for the valuation process, we consider the following laboratory certificates to be of the highest standard: GIA – Gemological Institute of America; HRD – Diamond High Council; and Gem Lab – Gubelin.
Certain gemstones, such as ruby, sapphire, or rare natural gems, can attract a premium in the market if they can be traced to a particular country. In lieu of an independent grading report, the seller may offer certain guarantees.
Our fine jewellery appraisers are always on hand in-store to advise you on your jewellery, diamond and precious stone collection. Get in touch to arrange an appointment, or come and find us in Mayfair, London.
