SafeGuard – The UK’s leading Valuation Service, is available from over 1,000 High Street retailers throughout the UK.

Determining the value of a piece of jewellery, a watch or an article of silverware, for whatever reason, requires a good deal of skill and experience.

At SafeGuard we pride ourselves on our team of highly qualified expert valuers who will give you an independent valuation.

SafeGuard does not buy or sell jewellery products and we charge a fixed price for each item valued. We have therefore no vested interest in the product, or its replacement value and promise you an unbiased opinion every time.

SafeGuard is a unique valuation and security marking service designed to offer you the very best protection for your jewellery.

SafeGuard’s expert valuers carefully examine all your jewellery, watches and silver. They will use their experience and the latest equipment to arrive at an informed opinion and provide you with a written valuation.

Digital photographs are taken and included in your valuation document with a full and accurate description. Any distinguishing features will also be noted.

Most jewellery can be SafeMarked for the ultimate in protection. A small discreet and distinctive SafeMark is marked onto each piece for future identification.

All this information is permanently stored onto SafeGuard’s secure national database, providing you, the police and your insurer with conclusive proof of ownership.

If your jewellery is lost or stolen you notify SafeGuard. The loss is entered onto a constantly updated Loss Register. If the item is recovered, identification is positive and confidential. When the police see the SafeMark they check with SafeGuard’s Loss Register – so recovery is no longer a matter of chance.

Your information is held in complete confidence and only released to the police or your insurer with your permission.

Simple, Straightforward, High Quality, Good Value

Losing or damaging a precious piece of jewellery is always distressing, a SafeGuard Valuation gives you some reassurance that you have taken all possible precautions.

What if the police recover all your irreplaceable possessions but have to let the criminal keep them because you cannot prove that they ever belonged to you?

You should always ensure that your jewellery is adequately insured. This is only possible if you have an up to date valuation for all major items you wish to cover.

Insurance claims involving items covered by a valuation by SafeGuard are straightforward and likely to result in a quicker and much more satisfactory outcome for you. Many major insurers recommend SafeGuard.

A SafeGuard valuation including the SafeMark is available at an all inclusive fixed price, regardless of the value of the item.

Take what you value most into your local SafeGuard jeweller and gain the protection.

Please contact your local SafeGuard Valuation Centre for prices.
