"Carol Clarke Jewellers carried out a most detailed and thorough Appraisal and Valuation of an Internationally acquired jewellery collection for us and we were very satisfied with the quality of her work and the fees charged. A very effective service"

"Having bought our engagement ring in Antwerpe we brought it to Carol to get it valued for insurance purposes. The service we received was above and beyond what we paid for and what we expected. Without going into the details there was a problem with our diamond, which Carol was very quick to spot. With her support, expert advice and help we eventually got the problem sorted. Carol was efficient, experienced and extremely trustworthy throughout the whole experience. Carols only motive was to ensure that we ended up with the ring we wanted, and given the fact that we originally chose her for her valuation expertise only, we cannot recommend her highly enough. While also having the advantage of being competitively priced in this industry her years of experience is very reassuring when getting an engagement ring assessed/valued. 10/10 for C Clarke Jewelers, exceptional service!"

"The first time I heard of Carol was when I read an article which she had written for the Irish Times. I was very impressed with the depth of her knowledge and experience. I have been a Client of Carol’s for the last three years. I cannot praise too highly Carol’s superb workmanship and attention to detail. The personal service she gives is all too rare these days."

"We had an old Antique ring checked by Carol as we were worried about the setting and stone before we bought the ring. We were very impressed with the detailed report that we received from Carol which made us aware of things that we never though of . We would really recommend Carol’s checking service if you are thinking of buying an old ring"

"I wanted to thank you for the jewellery valuations you carried out recently. The time and effort you spent on appraising my jewellery led to an extremely professional document being produced and I was very confident when approaching insurance companies for quotations. I will be highly recommending you to my friends"

"In August 2012, we consulted with Ms Clarke, trading as C. Clarke Jewellery Valuations, in order to have some items of jewellery valued for insurance purposes. We had read of her expertise in a newspaper article that had been recently published. A personal appointment was arranged. We found Ms Clarke to be most professional and honest in her dealings with us. She invited us to stay with her throughout the valuation process, thus immediately gaining our confidence. She was both personable and frank. She examined each item of jewellery, carefully. She measured, weighed, photographed and scrutinized each piece and was meticulous in her attention to detail. She explained that she would estimate each item’s value but she did not seek to elicit from us any information at to its original cost. When the valuation process had ended we left the consultation with each item of jewellery beautifully cleaned and polished! Within a day or two, Ms Clarke produced written estimated valuations for each piece of jewellery that she had examined. She was both realistic and accurate in her valuations. She provided an individualised bound report on each piece, which contained a scheduled description of the item, its dimensions and characteristics and its estimated value. Each folder also contained clear digital photographs of the item in question together with appraisal notes. We found Ms Clarke to be extremely candid and direct in her communications with us. We were most impressed by her obvious skill and expertise, her professionalism and competence as an expert in her field and by the promptness with which she produced her reports. We recommend her, confidently, to anyone interested in having a professional assessment and valuation of important items of jewellery. Finally, Ms Clarke’s fees were most competitive when compared with other ‘High Street’ valuation experts. We will continue to use her services whenever we need professional advice and valuations in relation to precious stones"
