I have to say that we are delighted with the service we have received from Vernon Ward, we found him on Google and were impressed by the reviews. But reviews alone don’t tell the whole story. We were looking to have “valued for sale” our collection of gold and diamond bracelets, gold pocket and wrist watches and other items of gold jewellery. Meeting Vernon Ward was an absolute delight. He is personable, professional and very enthusiastic about his vocation of selling jewellery for private individuals. The valuations and prices we received were above other jewellers’ offers, the execution of the sale was faultless and well within the ten days quoted. His commission rate is very reasonable and exactly as quoted. I have already recommended Vernon to friends and will continue to do so. It is rare to find someone who you can empathise with so quickly and frankly, trust implicitly. Highly recommended.

I would not hesitate to use Vernon again in the future and highly recommend his services

After trawling the internet for hours trying to find the best way to have my jewellery valued and sold I came across Vernon Ward. Vernons service was fantastic from start to finish. He valued and sold my Gold & pearl Victorian necklace and a gold bangle and kept me fully informed through the whole process. I knew instantly that I had gone to the right person. I would not hesitate to use Vernon again in the future and highly recommend his services.

Vintage Diamond Jewellery Sale

"Outstanding diamond sale. I took my vintage diamond jewellery to Vernon who after 3 days of constant and Meticulous research which he did completey for free, re-appaised the values far more accurately than any high street jewelers from the Laines in Brighton to high street jewelers in London I visited. I did not hesitate to go through Vernon where all business was conducted to the letter,very professionaly and private. Having gone to high street jewelers I would highly recommended going to a professional who knows exactly what he's talking about with many years of experience. (Vernon Ward) A personal one to one service! Having my mothers jewellery which is very sentimental Vernon was the only person who looked after me with compassion and understanding and not for financial gain. He encouraged me not to rush in to anything which is so rare in todays modern world. Which gave me total piece of mind when conducting my business with him from start to finish. Thank you Vernon"

His honesty is amazing, showing us that previous valuations were below current market value

We recently visited this gentleman, for a valuation on an antique Tiffany platinum and diamond ring after receiving poor service from various jewellers. Mr Ward fully researched the item, free of charge, keeping us fully informed throughout the entire process. He not only found us a buyer for the item, he also researched and valued another ruby and diamond ring, again free of charge. His honesty is amazing, showing us that previous valuations were below current market value. Vernon made us feel comfortable, reassured and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, we shall certainly utilising his services again.

No hidden charges

I had Georgian gold and diamond jewellery to sell and ruby and diamond earrings and other items and was delighted with the sale results achieved by Vernon. With no hidden charges! I may add that I chose Vernon because auction fees would have reduced the overall sale dramatically. An extremely professional and private service from Vernon and I would totally recommend him.

I have already posted a review of the excellent service Vernon offers elsewhere but what I did not mention, which is very pertinent in these days of Coronavirus, is that transactions have been done purely by post. Post the items to him and Vernon will catalogue, estimate their value and post all the documentation, as he did with us including the contract of sale and sale notice. He then sent the cash through the post. It was a first for me as I did not realise that valuables by post, including cash, are insured for £2,500 and can be increased up to £10,000. As I have said before Vernon offers a fabulous service, now even more relevant in these troubled times

Exceptional, personal service, with no rush or pressure to sell

"I had a collection of gold antique jewellery, which included diamond gold rings, gold antique brooches, gold watches and silver vintage jewellery which I took to Vernon to research. His research was very thorough and carried out with no charge, for which I am grateful. Vernon gives an exceptional, personal service, with no rush or pressure to sell. He was happy to sell part of the collection and to give me time to think about the rest. I would thoroughly recommend Vernon - a lovely man, a true professional."

French Gold Jewellery Sale

"My daughter-in-law, living in France, chose Vernon over local French valuers to estimate and sell a collection of French gold jewellery. This consisted of gold chains, gold rings, bangles and gold pocket watches. We met with Vernon, who was most helpful and chose to instruct him to dispose of all that he considered worthwhile. I am very pleased to say that the results exceeded our expectations, and we have no hesitation in recommending his exceptional level of service. "
