Meet Our Valuers
Gemologist / Valuer
Our founder Nicolas Delmont has 12+ years’ experience with jewellery and a Diploma in Gemmology after studying at the Gemmological Institute of America (GIA).
Having grown up in the family jewellery business, Nick was exposed to variations of gems and diamonds from around the world at a young age.
After understanding the colours and elements in stones along with the way each piece was crafted, Nick was hooked and discovered his lifelong passion.
Nick has travelled globally to the world’s largest shows to develop an in-depth understanding of jewellery, watches, high-end handbags, and estates.
Nick’s vision for DVC stemmed from his passion for jewellery and the chance to share his expertise with clients and other professionals in the industry.
The DVC team pride themselves on providing precise, timely, and affordable valuations to slash wait times while exceeding industry standards.
“This was my first time using Delmont Valuations for a handbag valuation and I received absolutely excellent service – couldn’t fault it at all – they were professional and very easy to deal with. Highly recommended.”
“Finding the time to take my wife’s jewelry to a valuer for insurance purposes was a hassle so I looked up to see if I could do it by courier and that’s when I came across DVC it was so easy and all our jewelry was insured from the time it was picked up until the time we received it back.”
“I sent Nick at DVC a couple of my rings to value. I loved that I could send my items in and not have to worry about tackling Auckland traffic to get my jewellery to him. He was incredibly professional to deal with and my things were back to me within the week. Would definitely use him again.”
“DVC has been professional, accurate & precise in all appraisals with our company. His ability to appraise jewellery, watches & handbags in house, gives our company an excellent ability to provide accredited valuations with the sales of all high-end luxury assets.”
