Jewellery Valuations Essex

Are you looking for an independent firm of professionally RICS qualified valuers and experts in jewellery valuations in Essex? Nicholas Muston and his team of valuers provide a range of valuation services across all areas of the art and antique market throughout the county of Essex. Antiques, artwork and paintings, jewellery, silver and gold, watches and clocks, porcelain and collectors items are just some of the many items we are asked to provide valuations for.

We serve every town in Essex, including Basildon, Waltham Abbey and Harlow.

Clients are drawn to us by our excellent reputation, superlative customer service and decades of experience. We provide a fully confidential and consistently reliable jewellery valuation service to our clients in Essex. Mindful that each client is different, we remain sensitive at all times to your particular situation and ensure that our service is tailored to your specific needs.

We can visit your home anywhere in Essex, if you require a jewellery valuation. We are able to broker sales direct to a jewellery collector or dealer, or we can sell via the most suitable auction room available. But whichever route to market we take, our aim is always to ensure we achieve the best possible price for your jewellery.

Our status as an independent firm means we have the freedom to recommend the best place to sell to maximise the price of your items. Depending on the items involved, this might be via auction or a private sale which can be brokered to a collector, museum or dealer. If auction is agreed as the best route to market then we do not charge you, as our fee is covered by the auction house via an introductory commission.

Our network of contacts in Essex help ensure that your items are made known to the right buyers at the right time, whatever method is used to sell. This is important as it means they stand every chance of attracting the highest prices possible.

We also undertake probate valuations in Chelmsford, Saffron Walden and Braintree and many other towns in the Essex area. This service is provided for solicitors, executors and beneficiaries. We also provide much sought-after advice to executors and trustees in regards to valuations of chattels for Capital Gains Tax, the Acceptance in Lieu (AIL) scheme and Conditional Exemption.

Any valuations are fully compliant with HMRC, and are undertaken with sensitivity and discretion at all times by a RICS qualified art and antiques valuer. Our valuations of jewellery, antiques and chattels are undertaken by a RICS accredited valuer and done in accordance with Section 160 of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984.

Following grant of probate, we can arrange for the sale of some or all of the contents of a property either via auction or a private sale. If need be, we can also deal with any house clearance that may be required, ensuring that the property is left broom clean.

Our valuation services are recommended by solicitors, accountants, insurance companies and many other relevant professionals due to our decades of experience, relevant accreditations and consistently excellent reputation. We are also involved with high net worth insurers, for example Dual, Hiscox, AIG, and Axa.

We have received kind comments and feedback from many clients in Essex, over the many years we have been in business. You can view some testimonials here: https://antiquevaluations.co.uk/testimonials/

If you live in Essex and need our help with a jewellery valuation, insurance valuation or probate valuation, we would be keen to hear from you. Please contact us and we’ll happily discuss your requirements.

I discovered this pair of Castellani bracelets on a routine probate valuation in Hove, amongst a group of costume jewellery. The family had no idea what they were or where they had come from.
Fortunately I knew exactly what they were and entered them into a Bonhams auction where they sold today for £30,000 plus buyer’s premium.
Made circa 1865 in a Byzantine style they are set with sugarloaf and cabochon sapphires and each is marked on the reverse with the interlocking CC mark.

Another Louis Vuitton trunk sold on behalf of a client to a private collector. This time a wardrobe trunk complete with drawers and hanging rail. A few condition issues but it is going to be sent to France for a first class sympathetic restoration. No more than it deserves.

Alfred Daniels, 1966. London street view near Charing Cross; oil on canvas; signed and dated; 70cm x 90cm.
A great looking painting in lovely original condition that I saw on a probate valuation this afternoon.
Daniel’s was once described as a “Lowry for Londoners”. Born in Bow in the east end of London he studied at the Royal College of Art. In the 1960s he taught at Hornsey College of Art.

I always enjoy walking in London because you never know what architectural gems are just around the next corner. This is the Royal Arcade in Albermarle Street which was built in 1879 and is opposite Brown’s the oldest hotel in London.
