We offer a wide range of valuation services the most common of which is Valuation for insurance.
At AA Thornton we recommend that you have your jewellery regularly
valued for insurance purposes. This gives a value of the
item should it need to be replaced.
Some underwriters suggest that an index linked increase is
applied each year but do be careful as jewellery prices do
not always follow these indexes. We would therefore recommend you
have the valuation updated every four or five years. This will
also give us the opportunity to recommend any repairs that may
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a loss then it is this
valuation for insurance that you will use to justify a fair
and realistic settlement from your underwriter. Do be careful when
choosing an insurance policy as some insurers insist you get the
replacement from their choice of supplier which may not be able to
supply the items you want.
We deal with many insurance companies and should you experience a
loss do come and talk about it regardless of whether we have previously
undertaken a valuation. We will be happy to assist and may even
be able to have the claim handled for you. When appropriate we will be
delighted to help you find the right item to replace what you have lost.
