Valuations and Online Valuations

Free auction valuations are available at our offices during normal office hours. Please telephone in advance to ensure the specialist you require is available when you arrive. If you are unable to visit us in person or you have a large quantity of items to sell you can arrange for one of our valuers to visit you in the comfort of your own home. You can also request an online valuation by emailing photographs to info@hampsteadauctions.com 

Our experts have many years of experience in their specialist fields. We offer particular expertise in the fields of jewellery, coloured gemstones, diamonds, watches, silver, Judaica, Chinese jades and ceramics, Russian antiques and objects, pens, gold boxes, and militaria. We also have access to various consultants and a wealth of knowledge in other fields. We do not offer valuations for paintings, prints or furniture.  

Illustrated written valuations for the purpose of Insurance, Probate, Capital gains or family separation can be arranged at a cost of £80 per hour + VAT.

Diamond And Coloured Gemstone Identification, Appraisal And Certification

We offer a full range of Diamond and Gemstone appraisal using our own gemmologists, who will be happy to provide free verbal auction estimates. Written valuations for the purpose of insurance, probate or family separation are charged at £80 per hour. In some cases, particularly if you are selling a diamond over 1 carat in weight, we may recommend that a certificate be obtained from a reputable gemmological laboratory. We will advise the best course of action in each individual case and obtain certificates on your behalf if required. The cost of certification depends upon the stone being examined and the type of certificate required.


Please contact us by email or telephone if you would like to be notified of items of specific interest, which may appear in our sales or be offered for sale by private treaty. Your email should include keywords, which can be used to identify items within your specific area of interest. For example, a collector of antique buttons should ask to be alerted to lots including the word “buttons”. Each catalogue and private treaty sale is searched for keywords matching our database of buyers’ requests. Alerts will be sent out by email.

Finding Service

We hold an extensive national and international database of dealers, private collectors, retailers and auctioneers. If you are seeking a particularly rare or specific item we may be able to help you to locate it. Your details will also be added to our alerts and private treaty databases, ensuring instant notification should the item you are seeking appear in our salerooms.
