My name is Anna Rogers, a jewellery professional with a smile.
I am an Art Historian (BA), GIA Graduate Gemmologist, fully qualified MIRV valuer and jewellery professional with 15 years experience within jewellery industry.
After starting my jewellery career at the auction houses, I have worked in jewellery retail sector in both Hatton Garden, London and Chelmsford, Essex. I have extensive professional knowledge of gemstones and diamonds and will be delighted to assist you with all your valuation enquiries.
As a jewellery professional, I live for all things jewellery, but I love playing detective, catching gemstone fakes or imitations. To name a few, I've caught synthetic sapphires sold as natural, undisclosed opal “triplets”, glass-filled rubies and, the classic, glass sold as gemstone. We are offering professional pre-purchase assessment service, to put client’s mind in piece before buying jewellery or gemstones. We also can verify client’s holiday purchases.

What is jewellery valuation?

The research with detailed notes and analysis carried out by our professional IRV registered valuer ensures that the figures calculated are fully justifiable and accountable, and less likely to be questioned in the event of a claim.
