Jewellery Evaluation for Pawnbrokers


This is a course of practical tuition designed to enhance professional practise in Pawnbroking appraisal and evaluation.


An intensive 2-day course has been specially created for Pawnbrokers to help them react successfully to an increasingly wider range of customers, from those with typical jewellery items to those who wish to pawn luxury diamond and gemstone jewellery.


During the course the tutor will provide practical instruction where you will learn step-by-step methods for on-the-spot identification and evaluation. At the end of the course you will have learned methods for effective evaluation techniques in order to avoid costly mistakes in this increasingly complex area.


This hands-on practical course includes:

  • Identification and pricing methodology for diamonds, coloured gemstones and precious and non-precious metals used in jewellery.

  • How to identify Hallmarks, a very important part of the valuation process for identifying the metals - precious and non-precious - that jewellery is made of.


To aid your learning experience information handout sheets will also be supplied for you to keep as a permanent reference source.   


During the learning process you will handle diamonds and coloured gemstones and with step-by-step tutor guidance, use standard gemmological equipment to appraise and practise evaluating them.

Course content has been specially designed by an accredited professional Jewellery Valuer to inform the appraisal and evaluation methodology needed to give you the skills to evaluate all types of jewellery in order to assign a good fair value.


No previous gemmology, jewellery retail or jewellery buying experience is necessary to benefit from this course.


A CPD Certificate of Attendance will be provided and you will have the opportunity to compile working notes which will be explained, practiced and used in the evaluation learning process.
