Qualifications your valuer should have

Your jewellery valuer should be a qualified gemmologist and diamond grader.

JVS Members are required to be qualified gemmologists and diamond graduates. Associate members are currently studying for their qualifications. Gemmology is a scientific subject and the maximum qualification available is a Diploma. There is no New Zealand qualification in Gemmology so JVS qualified gemmologists have all completed their training overseas.
