Orsini Fine Jewellery staff are happy to provide expert advice on jewellery appraisals and valuations. We offer a full replacement service to cover the loss or theft of your jewellery and are approved suppliers for all the major insurance companies in New Zealand.
We recommend you obtain insurance for your jewellery items purchased in case of a theft or loss.
JEWELLERY VALUATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Insurance companies will not insure your precious jewellery unless it is individually itemized on most insurance policies. It is your responsibility to find out your insurance company requirements and to get insurance cover on your jewellery, not all insurers provide similar cover. Refer to the Association of Independent Jewellery Valuers (AIJV) & the Jewellery Valuers Society. There is also very good information from Jewellers & Watchmakers Association & the insurance and savings ombudsman's information sheet on insurance of jewellery.
Orsini can provide complimentary valuations on the following jewellery brands, Marco Bicego, Hulchi Belluni & Pomellato, if you have purchased the jewellery from us. We can email you a copy of the valuation to make it easier to forward to your insurance company.
If we have made a bespoke ring or a custom made item we recommend a valuation from an accredited valuer. Even though Sarah is a qualified practical diamond grader with additional GIA qualifications on diamonds and gemstones, it is best practice that the valuer should not be the seller. However, we are the exclusive suppliers of many of the international brands at Orsini and endeavor to price these items for international pricing recommendations. Therefore we are able & qualified to provide these valuations.
We recommend you speak to your insurance company and check your policy, it is heartbreaking if you loose your ring or item of precious jewellery and find out that you are not covered. Please remember to pop back and see us for your annual ring check if you have purchased a diamond ring or precious gemstone from us, as well as a complimentary clean of your jewellery.
INSURANCE CLAIM - JEWELLERY REPLACEMENT SERVICE
At Orsini we are often approached by clients to provide replacement jewellery after a theft or loss. This is usually heartbreaking as many of the jewellery items lost are often precious. We regularly try and source a replacement item or a client may like to chose something new. We have large jewellery ranges of quality handmade jewellery and have large catalogues of jewellery we can source from overseas. We can also make bespoke jewellery here at our NZ based jewellery workshop. We regularly communicate with insurance companies and provide replacement jewellery after a theft or loss. At Orsini we try and make this as easy and stress free as possible. In most cases you just need to let your insurance company know that you have selected Orsini Fine Jewellery to provide replacement jewellery and other details they may request.
