ABOUT US

I am an experienced jewellery consultant with a commitment to providing valuation services that are personal, thorough, and above all, ethical.

After originally studying statistics at university and working for several years as a consultant in the financial services industry, I decided to pursue my true passion: jewellery. Since then, I have studied around the world, taking the time to develop a holistic knowledge of the jewellery industry and to understand each stage of an object’s journey, from concept and design through to production and market.

In my native Italy - in Milan and Rome - I trained as a goldsmith, and by learning first-hand the craft of creating original pieces in gold, I developed the technical expertise to recognise the historical and geographical provenance of a piece of jewellery. Building upon this experience, I founded my own workshop in Milan, where I offered a range of services from the creation of bespoke pieces to the support of clients attending auctions. Managing the workshop, and later working as a valuer at a pawnbroker in London, I have become adept at recognising counterfeit products and at valuing items according to current market standards. Fully accredited by the IRV, I am able to produce a valuation document to meet your insurance needs.

My fascination for the history of jewellery and my desire to learn more has taken me around the globe; I have studied diamonds, gemstones and antique jewellery at institutions in Antwerp, Tel Aviv and London. The knowledge I have acquired through my studies informs each and every one of my valuation projects today, and I continue to learn alongside my work - whether reading my personal collection of jewellery books, attending courses here in London, or visiting car-boot sales and auctions on the lookout for interesting pieces to study or restore.
