Our hugely successful jewellery department is run by Catriona Smith, who currently heads two eagerly awaited specialist Fine Jewellery and Watch sales a year, with the recent introduction of Catrin Jones to oversee our monthly jewellery auctions, which have an emphasis on good quality jewellery and silver to complement our existing sales calendar.  Stephen Giles, an experienced jewellery specialist runs our London Office and makes up the final member of the team, who between them have over ninety years’ experience in the jewellery trade.

Catriona and Catrin are both Registered Valuers® with the Jewellery Valuers Association, Catriona was a Registered Valuer with the National Association of Jewellers from 1994-2020 achieving Fellow status and Catrin from 2018 until 2020, as such they are qualified to prepare formal valuations for open market, insurance, probate, private sale, loan security, and family division purposes. 

All our specialists are available by appointment, to share their extensive knowledge with both vendors and prospective purchasers; they are able to advise, appraise and discuss pieces as diverse as antique jewellery, gemstones, pearls, jade, amber and costume jewellery.

If you are unable to visit our Stansted Mountfitchet Auction Rooms, Hertford Office or London Gallery, please have a look at our valuation day calendar when one of our team will be delighted to share their expertise and knowledge with you.
