A new team of experts have been appointed by a Lichfield auction house.
Gemmologists and jewellery specialists Georgina Southam and Emma Testill have taken on roles with Richard Winterton Auctioneers.
They join existing experts Lisa Spence, Natalie Brandon and Louise Ludlam-Snook in helping to value items at the Fradley auction house and the company’s site in Tamworth.
Auctioneer Richard said:
“They have already been busily unlocking the mysteries of all types of jewellery, watches, gemstones, gold, silver, platinum and other precious metals.
“The beauty of auction is the ability to present items to hundreds of interested buyers all at once, maximising the potential for the best possible price.
“This combines with strong results from our busy schedule of regular sales, providing a quick turnaround from valuation to auction, should the client wish.
“So if you’re wondering about a watch or baffled by a bracelet, come and see us – that piece languishing in a drawer could turn out to be a real treasure.”Richard Winterton
Regular, free jewellery, watch, gold and silver events are also planned in conjunction with the firm’s weekly in-house valuations. These include sessions at The Hub at St Mary’s in Lichfield city centre every Tuesday from 9.30am to 11am.
