I just wanted to drop in a quick note of thanks to The Guild of Valuers and Jewellers for arranging our recent valuation at Ernest Jones in Maidenhead. Your colleague Mr Huddy was incredibly thorough and professional and the report I have been left with is exactly what I needed for my insurers. The insights and background information he was able to give us, particularly on what we now know to be an antique brooch, has added a whole new level to my wife and my enjoyment of the few pieces we have been able to cobble together.
His erudition is to be complimented.
Many thanks for a wonderfully enjoyable experience. I will most certainly be arranging future regular revaluations.

Dear Alice. I just wanted to write and thank you for all the information about the Valuation Days in Glasgow. I arranged an appointment at Ernest Jones where Phil assessed my jewellery. It was SUCH an interesting and fascinating experience!! My husband and I so enjoyed watching Phil at work, something we’ve never seen before as other jewellers ask you to leave your items then collect them later date. Not only did we enjoy seeing how an expert valuer undertakes the task, but being present enabled both Phil and us, to ask questions to clarify various points. I can’t imagine a better way to have jewellery valued! Phil was delightful, professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and highly skilled. Overall, this service is top notch, and one which I will have no hesitation whatsoever recommending to others!
Thank you all once again.
