Any idea how much it usually costs? Can it be done "same day"?

No you will have to pay for the service.

What is it that you want valuing?

Does it have stones in it or is it just gold?

It's usually a % of the valuation subject to a minimum fee.
Is it for insurance, or just curiosity?

A bit of both really.

These are the best people to give jewellery valuations ]http//ww…rd/ you can look at the site and find out whena safeguard valuer is in your area,they have valuation days at various jewellers throughout the country and you can take your item down.

They will value according to the quality of diamonds ie cut,colour,clarity,carat weight etc and also the amount of gold used.

My guess is that the bracelet will not have the best quality diamonds in it as they are set in 9k gold.......for example,I could get an 18k gold 1k diamond tennis bracelet with SI diamonds for £500.

Check your contents insurance policy,I do not think that you will need a separate valuation certificate for this item a it will be less than £1k
