Members of the National Council of Jewellery Valuers

Lawrence Sanders jewellers have been members of the National Council of Jewellery Valuers since its inception in 1984


Members of the National Council of Jewellery Valuers (NCJV) must undergo training in all the key areas of gemmological study, gemstone grading and the detection of synthetic gemstones.


They must also commit to ongoing education to keep up-to-date with industry changes in order to maintain their membership as a Registered Valuer™.


Accurate jewellery valuation is a demanding and highly technical profession that draws on many areas of expertise and knowledge.


NCJV Registered Valuers™ have access to the latest testing equipment and procedures to provide a scientific analysis of precious and semi-precious gems. They are trained to identify the tiniest details that can affect a valuation and are familiar with the techniques used in the manufacture of imported and modern jewellery.


For all our valuers their ongoing training means they are kept up-to-date with market trends which can affect price.


Regular market research is undertaken by the NCJV, which is a vital source of information for members on the latest materials and resources.


Through the NCJV, members also have access to a network of other experts for technical advice.


As NCJV members, we supply NCJV Certified Valuations with all jewellery items we sell that are of insurable value.
