The Jewellery Valuation Centre – Our Story

Like many stories about how a business started, The Jewellery Valuation Centre was born out of frustration with the status quo. Jewellery Valuers were providing insurance valuations through retail jeweller clients that were often inflated. These inflated valuations, often with inaccurate descriptions were used to specify jewellery for inflated premiums. Claim settlements were then often frustrated by poor jewellery descriptions and false expectations.

Michael Emerson knew there had to be a better way for New Zealanders to value and insure their jewellery. So he committed The Jewellery Valuation Centre to producing well researched and accurate insurance valuations. To do this he built up a team of industry leading experts. He implemented what it took to provide a professional, independent valuation service that fully met the needs of Insurance Companies’ clients.

By committing to continual improvement of our professional skills, The Jewellery Valuation Centre has grown to be the trusted jewellery valuation specialists.
