Carla Goodfellow who leads operations at the Birmingham Assay Office said,

We’re delighted to offer this benefit to NAJ members up until the end of December. With non-essential retail now open, the team here are looking forward to supporting jewellery retailers deliver a professional service for their customers, wherever they might be in the UK.

Synthetic screening is becoming increasingly popular amongst our retail clients and so we felt it was sensible to incorporate this service into the exclusive offer.

Included in the jewellery assessment report service is:

  • Screening for Synthetic/Laboratory grown diamonds as a default part of this service and the report will state the diamonds have been tested and are natural.
  • An image and a full description, accurately describing a piece of jewellery
  • As part of the review of the jewellery the service includes testing the metal, identifying the hallmark where appropriate.
  • Measuring and verifying the gemstones.
  • Measuring and grading the diamonds, estimating stone carat weights or verifying them etc.

Synthetic Screening is also included, all on the same item, when the services are carried out at the same time. The Report is presented in an attractive presentation wallet from SafeGuard at The Birmingham Assay Office.

Shop stock valuations can be carried out at the same time as a package option. 

Prices start from £40.00 for all three services depending on the complexity of the item, representing a saving of 7.5% up until December 2021.
