Jewellery Valuations in Wimbledon & South West London

We are able to provide Valuations for Insurance Replacement Values, for Probate and for Divorce Proceedings; it is not possible to provide verbal valuations or undertake Valuations instantly.

It is important that your jewellery is adequately insured. We recommend that jewellery is valued for Insurance Replacement purposes every two years or so.

Fluctuations in the value of precious metals, diamonds and gemstones are often influenced by world events, currency movements as well as supply and demand. Any increases (or decreases), therefore, are not usually linked to any economic price index. Items that are booked in with us for Valuation are fully inspected and assessed, with all stone settings checked. A typed Valuation with full item description is prepared.

For Insurance Replacement Valuation purposes there is a £50 minimum charge which covers items up to a value £5,000 with a charge of 1% of the total value after that  ie £100 fee for jewellery valued at a  total of £10,000. Once your items have been assessed we will contact you to let you know and you can collect them by bringing in the Repair Receipt you will be given; sometimes the typed Valuation is not ready at the same time. If this is so, you will be informed and if you do wish to collect your jewellery, the typed Valuation will be mailed directly to you within approximately a week.


We do like to be as speedy as possible with Valuations, however we do require your items to be booked in with us; the turnaround really depends on exactly how busy we are at any given time with work ahead of yours.

If you do wish Michael Platt to Value your items and have more than 7 or 8 pieces, please make an appointment so we can ensure we have adequate time to book in and detail your items, less than this number, no appointment is necessary. If you have any relevant validating paperwork with your jewellery, ie original receipts showing provenance/Diamond Certificates, please bring these with and the Certificate number will be noted on the Valuation against the relevant item. Please note that we can only accept a total number of 25 pieces of jewellery for Valuation at any one time.

Valuations can be obtained for modern, vintage and antique jewellery as well as certain watches. Valuations can also be undertaken for Probate and Divorce purposes, the charge for these Valuations is a minimum rate of £100 + 1% of the total value.

Probate Jewellery Valuations

Michael Platt value jewellery for probate purposes, providing valuations on earrings, diamond rings, bracelets and other family heirlooms jewellery. Probate Valuations are based on the likely amount you would receive for a pre-loved piece if you were to sell the jewellery to within the trade. We hold over 30 years of experience and provide a Probate Valuation with consideration being given to the, age of the piece(s), the stones, qualities, metal, and overall condition of the items.

If you wish to improve the appearance or condition of the piece(s), Michael Platt specialise in fine jewellery restoration, in-store which can include re-polishing chipped stones, replacing worn ring bands, re-tipping stone claws and building up setting edges and cleaning jewellery. We have extensive experience in restoring the most delicate pieces of jewellery and family heirlooms.

Alternatively, Michael Platt can re-design a brand new piece of jewellery, carefully and sensitively using inherited gems and diamonds which are so often of huge sentimental value to the new owners. This gives totally new life to pieces yet with the same familiar gemstones and diamonds, allowing delicate vintage items to be worn again with confidence and, in due course, passed on to future generations.

Please make an appointment with one of our staff members so we can undertake a Probate Valuation for you.


Jewellery Valuations for Insurance

Getting your jewellery valued for insurance purposes is essential in order to replace any items that may get lost or stolen. Engagement rings and anniversary jewellery gifts are usually highly sentimental and losing them can feel like a tremendous loss. However, having your items valued and priced accordingly for Insurance Replacement purposes ensures that you should easily be reimbursed the appropriate amount and receive a replacement in no time.

Our in-house Goldsmiths examine your jewellery and provide a written valuation for presentation to your insurance company.

To arrange a jewellery valuation for insurance replacement purposes, please come into the shop in Wimbledon or contact us to make an appointment if you have over seven items – with a maximum number of twenty-five items accepted at any one time.

Jewellery Valuations for Divorce

if you are, unfortunately, in the midst of a divorce, you may be asked to provide a Jewellery Valuation for Divorce Proceedings. We can help you with this.

The value of your jewellery is based on what the item is worth today if it were resold, as a pre-loved piece, not its original value or its insurance replacement value.

Michael Platt has been successfully valuing jewellery for over 30 years and, appreciate the delicate nature of the situation when dealing with divorce. Michael Platt will gladly be able to put your mind at ease and provide the necessary Valuation documentation that is required. If you are interested in valuing your jewellery for divorce purposes, please come into the shop in Wimbledon or contact us to make an appointment if you have over seven items.

Wimbledon’s gem: Michael Platt boutique jewellers


Spotlight on Wimbledon Village’s boutique jewellers Michael Platt

Michael Platt, Goldsmiths & Jewellers opened at 1 Church Road, Wimbledon Village SW19 in 1991 – it’s a welcoming friendly boutique Jewellers, full of fabulous dazzling treasures.    Much of the jewellery is made onsite in their own workshop visible from the shop. The jewellery is creative, individual, unique and very wearable.  They are well known and established for providing a very caring and personal bespoke service, working with customers to create hand-crafted jewellery suited to individual tastes and budget.  Detailed restoration and repair work, as well as jewellery valuations are also undertaken on site.

Heavy Silver & 18ct Gold Multi Gemstone Bracelet, £525

Bespoke or not?  Yes definitely; a piece of jewellery to celebrate a special memorable event, once given is never forgotten and will always mean so much.  Commissioning a bespoke item gives the customer a rare opportunity to take part in creating a truly unique piece of jewellery that reflects the personality of the individual. An in-house designer and working Goldsmith will be hands on designing and making the jewellery.  Frequently customers bring in their own fantastic sketched designs and doodles, formed from flashes of inspiration  which allow the talented team to come up with designs once they have captured the essence of a customer’s idea ad dream.

Whether working on a new piece or the redesign of dated or inherited jewellery, it is a truly exciting journey that does not need to be complex or necessarily expensive. 

Yellow Gold Diamond and Gemstone Crossover Ring, £855

The process begins with an informal exchange of ideas, preferences, stones and, of course, budget. 

On the next visit, customers are presented with a selection of hand drawn or 3D computer modelled designs, to discuss and choose from and, if needed, a variety of gorgeous gemstones or diamonds to select from.  Customers are encouraged to be involved at every stage, much like a dress design and fitting, and can return to view the progression of their item during its journey. Traditional hand-crafted methods are used to create a bespoke piece of jewellery in the workshop, starting with freely hand carving the item in wax to be cast in the chosen precious metal.  Once the item is formed, it will be ‘rough’. It is then cleaned, refined and polished and goes to the London Assay Hall for Hallmarking.   The final workshop process is the setting of stones  –  a fine, delicate and precise process.  The end pleasure for the team is when the customer collects the finished item with a loud ‘WOW’!

Silver & 18ct Gold Plaited Bracelets set with Diamonds, from £295

If a bespoke piece of jewellery is not something that’s right for you, do not despair.  Michael Platt have a large selection of wonderful Wedding and Engagement Rings to see and try. Not sure what you want? the helpful, knowledgeable staff will guide and help you make the right decision.   All sorts of jewellery for day or occasion wear too some set with gorgeous colourful gemstones.

Do pop in, you won’t be disappointed.

90,000 How Meghan Markle Jewelry Is Helping Women in Afghanistan, HELLO! Russia

Meghan Markle has her favorites among designers not only of clothes, but also of jewelry. Prince Harry’s wife often appears in the creations of the Pippa Small brand, but few people know that this is no ordinary British brand: its owner, 50-year-old Pippa Small from Wiltshire, sells jewelry created by women from war-ravaged Kabul, Afghanistan. Pippa Small provides them with secure jobs, thereby increasing their chances of a normal life in the face of war and the denial of their rights as women.All items are handcrafted by women trained by the Turquoise Mountain Foundation. One of the Foundation’s missions is to create jobs for young people, especially women, who “need hope and purpose in the face of war and violence.” It was founded in 2006 by Princes Charles and Harry with the support of former Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

For the first time, Meghan Markle was seen wearing their jewelry at Princess Eugenia’s wedding in October 2018 for a total of £ 6,000: clip-on earrings, gold rings and a gold bracelet with 18K diamonds.She also regularly appeared in the brand’s jewelery during the big Australian tour at the end of 2018. The Duchess continues to support Pippa Small after giving birth, such as at the Wimbledon Finals last month.

Pippa Small told the British HELLO !, that this gesture from the Duchess meant a lot to her:

This is incredible! After many years of futile attempts to establish production, Megan simply opened the doors to a new life for these women. The effect of Meghan appearing in our jewelry was fantastic.Especially after her appearance at the British Fashion Awards in 2018.

90,000 8 budget jewelry brands worn by Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton

Access to the Royal Treasury can be pampering, but this is clearly not the case for Kate Middleton.The Duchess of Cambridge continues to support more budget jewelry brands. Luxurious jewelry from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and, of course, unique pieces from the Queen’s personal collection – all this is intended for special occasions, but for everyday outings, Kate has a box with much more affordable brands in store. What can be found there – we tell in our material.

The example of the Duchess of Cambridge proves that inexpensive jewelry does not necessarily look boring – Kate managed to assemble a very diverse collection, where you can find earrings with colored stones, fashionable pearl earrings, and earrings of unusual shapes.Since the wife of Prince William wears only engagement and wedding rings in everyday life and, it seems, is not the biggest fan of necklaces and chains, it was earrings that became her main accessory.

Keith demonstrates that you can look elegant and beautiful on any budget,

– British Vogue jewelry and watch expert Rachel Garrakhan commented on Kate’s looks.

So what kind of budget brands has Kate already worn?

Mirabelle Jewelery

Model Lolita Middleton appeared in three-hoop earrings at the 2015 Wimbledon tournament.The jewelry can still be found on sale – it costs only £ 45. The founder of Mirabelle, Veronique Henri, in fact, continued the family business – her father had a workshop for the production of silverware in Paris.

Kate Middleton

Mirabelle Jewelery

Henri makes his jewelry from silver, brass, bronze, metals coated with 22-carat gold and semi-precious stones. Other famous fans of the brand include Ellie Golding, Pixie Lott and Edith Bowman.

Monica Vinader

The £ 125 Green Onyx Earrings are another Duchess’s favorite for any occasion. For example, in 2018, she wore them while attending Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden.

Monica Vinader

The founder and CEO of the brand, Monica Vinader, grew up surrounded by works of art – her parents were in the antique business.It is noteworthy that her studio is located in Norfolk – there is also the residence of the Dukes of Cambridge, Anmer Hall.

Monica Vinader jewelery is also worn by Bella Hadid, Olivia Palermo.


Keith supports more than just local craftsmen. Her budget collection also includes very beautiful pearl earrings from the Swedish brand In2Design. The Duchess of Cambridge also wore them several times, on occasions related to the Swedish monarchy.For example, during a royal visit to this Scandinavian country in January 2018. She also put them on on the birthday of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden – July 14, 2019. On that day, Kate attended the men’s tennis final at Wimbledon.

The founders of the brand, Inger Mark and Inga Louise Baldwin, were born and raised in Sweden but founded their brand in the USA in 2002. Designers use freshwater pearls, precious metals and semi-precious stones, as well as materials unexpected for jewelry craftsmanship, such as suede, leather or silk cord.

Kate’s baroque pearl earrings cost $ 156.

Kate Middleton



Various Missoma jewels take pride of place in the Duchess’s jewelry box, including this pair of rhodochrosite pendant earrings that she wore during a visit to East London last November. The cost of the jewelry is £ 85.


The founder and creative director of the London brand is Marisa Hordern, who quit her job at a large corporation for her hobby. The brand began with collecting stones and a creative workshop at the kitchen table. Today, the company’s office is also more like a house where a large and colorful family has gathered. Employees are provided with creative freedom and opportunities to express themselves outside the assigned position. In addition, the brand supports charitable initiatives.


It’s no secret that some of the things that Kate wore became so popular thanks to her that, as a sign of respect, the designers renamed the model in her honor. One example is the gold plated chalcedony earrings that became the bestseller in the Athena collection. Today, Kate earrings are available for £ 35.


The London brand was founded by Ashley Marshall back in 1995.He developed an interest in jewelry and design during his travels in South America. Upon his return to the UK, Ashley studied for three years at Sir John Cass’s Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design in London. As a result, his signature style is a fusion of ancient tribal art forms with modern pop culture and fashion trends.

Catherine Zoreida

Kate has been wearing this Scottish brand with Colombian roots for several years.For example, she wore dainty fern leaf earrings during a trip to Northern Ireland in February 2020. They cost £ 165.

Catherine Zoreida

The founder of the brand, Catherine Zorayda, studied at the art school of the Edinburgh College of Art, where she received her goldsmith’s degree. She has also created jewelry collections for many British designers, including Vivienne Westwood.

The brand’s jewelry is also worn by Gigi Hadid, Emma Watson, Alicia Vikander.


This is probably the most inexpensive jewelry Kate has ever worn. At the opening of the Back To Nature Garden Festival in the fall of 2019, she wore Filigree earrings from the Accessorize mass market store, valued at just £ five!


Spells of Love

As we have already noted, Kate does not wear chains very often in everyday life, but there are still some exceptions.During her visit to Battersea Park last September, the Duchess chose a trendy £ 85 double chain necklace from the Welsh brand Spells of Love, founded by Hayley Jones.

Kate Middleton

Spells of Love

In public, the Duchess, however, also appeared in earrings from this brand worth 79 pounds, for example, during a visit to Barry Island in August last year.

The best strawberry dishes and drinks in London

The Wimbledon Championships and their noble accompaniment of strawberries and cream are the highlights of the British summer.Last year, tournament attendees ate 28,000 kg (140,000 servings) of English strawberries, 320,000 glasses of Pims and 29,000 bottles of champagne.

90,000 London police dream of catching the “Wimbledon burglar” who has stolen £ 10 million worth of valuables in 10 years.

London police have for many years been unsuccessfully hunting down the “Wimbledon Burglar”, which terrorizes the residents of the prestigious southwest London area. The burglar is responsible for hundreds of burglaries and the amount of damage to the residents of Wimbledon totals £ 10 million. For 10 years of fruitful work, the burglar committed more than 200 burglaries, despite complex locks, security, alarm systems and video cameras. He stole expensive watches, jewelry and money.Among the victims of the thief are tennis player Boris Becker, footballer Nicolas Anelka and many other famous people. The biggest trophy of the criminals was the £ 500,000 Rolex Submariner. As Detective Dan O’Sullivan emphasized: “There is no other person in the UK who is like him in terms of a long period of work, as well as arrogance and the size of the financial benefit received” (photo- airbnb.ru).

A particularly productive period for the attacker was between September 2015 and early 2016, when he made three to four attacks per week.The police so far only know that the person is about 35 years old, athletic, agile, disciplined, and well aware of the methods of police work. “This man appears to be one of 10 burglars who are planning their crimes,” said retired police officer Calvin Beckford. As the well-known metropolitan edition of The London weekly notes today, experts believe that the burglar does not work for money, but enjoys the feeling of risk. “Like him, it’s the thrill of the chase for us, so one day we’ll get lucky and we’ll catch him,” O’Sullivan added.

90,000 5 shocking facts about gold

# 5: All That Glitters Is Not Gold

Despite the fact that at first glance it seems that jewelry stores are bursting with the amount of gold they contain, this metal is still rare. Statistics say that more steel is cast per hour than gold in the entire history of mankind. Business tycoon Warren Buffett said that if you imagine all the gold mined by a person in one cube, then it will be 20 meters high. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) claims that all the gold in the world can easily fit on the Wimbledon court. Also, “girl’s best friend” or not, some estimates suggest that a one ounce or 28.3 gram nugget is less common than a 5 carat diamond.So, next time you go shopping for shiny things, expect the prices to match. Bonus fact: Olympic gold medals are 92% silver.

# 4: Cosmonauts and airline pilots need gold

And although about a quarter of the annual consumption of gold goes to jewelry stores , it has other uses. Gold is actually an effective material for reflecting sunlight and reducing glare.Despite the fact that many people did not think about it, gold is an important part of aircraft construction, in particular for the manufacture of windshields. In astronautics, gold is also used as an anti-reflective coating for helmets. Or as a thread for expensive textiles, or in electrical wiring. It is said that processing a ton of computer hardware recovers more gold than 17 tonnes of gold ore.

# 3: The Oceans Are Overflowing with Gold

Despite the fact that gold is rarely terrestrial, Earth still contains a large quantity of this material, but most of it is in the oceans and is not available at the moment. According to some estimates, there are between 20 and 30 million tons of gold trapped in the trap. . Of course, this does not mean that you can run to the beach and suck yourself a little. One liter of ocean water contains an average of 13 billionths of a gram. Quite diluted gold, isn’t it? Of course, gold is in much greater concentration at great depths and now its production is extremely difficult and economically unprofitable. However, if we could extract the gold and divide it for every person on the planet, each got about 4 kilograms.

# 2: India loves gold more than anyone else

Over the centuries to the present, India boasts a thriving gold market and an estimated there are 300,000 jewelers in the country. . According to statistics, 11% of the total amount of world gold is accounted for by Indian women and their jewelry, which is more than 18 thousand tons of metal , which is more than the reserves of the United States, Switzerland and Germany combined. But it should be borne in mind that the country’s population is more than a billion people and in terms of per capita consumption, it takes only 19th place.

# 1: Gold comes from a galaxy far, far away

Money does not grow on trees, so why should gold be a part of the Earth? Scientists believe that almost every ounce of gold hit our planet along with a meteorite that struck more than 200 million years ago, after the world was formed . As a result, the precious metal is found on every continent. In 2011, a study by the University of Bristol confirmed the galactic history of gold, highlighting how much the modern world and economy is dependent on what has become a random event .Study leader Dr. Matthias Willbold explains how gold “hit our planet by a fluke, along with 20 billion billion tons of asteroid material.” And this fact gets a gold medal for coolness!
