Lalique jewellery has the power to stir emotions - March 2011
The Institute of Registered Valuers was developed in 2008 from the the original 'Registered Valuers Scheme' to promote the highest standards in valuation work.
The Academy of Valuers is a learned society for the study and advancement of knowledge pertinent to the assessment, appraisal and valuation of jewellery-related items.
The Association of Independent Jewellery Valuers, launched in 2010, promotes the benefits of using the truly Independent Valuer to the public, trade and insurance industry.
