Valuations & Insurance
Valuations offer you the peace of mind that should anything untoward happen, your treasures and heirlooms are protected. With every Laings purchase we can provide you with the necessary valuation documents for insurance companies. These cover all of the jewellery collections and watches we stock.
Over time, jewellery has a tendency to appreciate in value faster than many insurance policies take into account. If your jewellery has not been valued in the last five years, it may be at risk of being vastly under-insured. At Laings we are delighted to be able to offer an in-house valuation service. Our Valuer, Sammantha Maclachlan IRV96816 MIRV PJDip CertGA is a Member of the National Association of Jeweller's Institute of Registered Valuers, giving you peace of mind that your valuation is handled professionally and to the highest standard. You can clearn more about Sammantha here.
At all times your jewellery or watch will be fully insured while in our possession. To discuss a valuation in more depth, you can contact Sammantha below:
Anyone who has had to replace lost, stolen or damaged jewellery will tell you that it can be an emotional time. Many find that insurance companies give conflicting advice or worse, push their customers to only use their preferred advisers. While we hope that you never have to replace a special piece of jewellery or family heirloom it’s worth remembering that an insurance company cannot force you to use specific suppliers.
If this unfortunate situation ever arises, come and see us at Laings and we will do all we can to replace what you have lost. If your piece was bespoke, our in-house jewellers can design a replacement that mirrors the original.
