Valuations & Insurance
Valuations offer you the peace of mind that should anything untoward happen, your treasures and heirlooms are protected. With every LAING purchase we 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. Our NAG registered valuer can carry out a full valuation on your behalf, producing a detailed and tailored report, which covers all aspects of your cherished piece.
At all times your jewellery or watch will be fully insured while in our possession. To discuss a valuation in more depth, talk to a member of the LAING Edinburgh team on 0131 225 4513 or email us directly.
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 Laing 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. If you’d like, we will even handle your insurance company for you.
