Over time, settings on your jewellery can become worn down or even break; this especially happens with everyday items like rings and bracelets. Often this doesn’t get noticed until it’s too late and the precious stone has been lost! Not only can this be upsetting but we have seen a number of cases where insurance claims have been declined on the grounds of clauses such as this one from a major insurer:
Claw, Clasp and Settings Maintenance Endorsement Clause:
“In the event of loss or damage we may request sight of the examination documents or written confirmation from the jeweller that all settings were in good order.”
This risk can be completely avoided by having the setting checked by a jeweller to make sure your settings are safe but going to a high street jeweller can be very time consuming.
Due to the massive improvements to mobile phone cameras, combined with the latest gemmological precision tools we can identify loose claws and unsafe settings from four clear photographs.
We have created an online, streamlined process to make it incredibly simple and will take almost no time on your part. The fee for the check is just £30 inc. VAT per item, which includes producing a certificate for your insurer or broker.
All you need to do is take the four photographs (without magnification) using your phone and upload them to our site, start below by providing your contact details and then upload the photographs on the next page.
We will then email you the certificate or contact you should we have any further questions.
