Position:Estate Specialist/Photographer, GIA AJP
"One man's trash is another man's treasure" proverb
As an Estate Specialist with National Rarities, I am fortunate to meet people from all ages and walks of life. I love hearing stories about our customer's family history and how they acquired items. It is also very rewarding to educate our customers about their items and offer an opportunity to rehome their sentimental treasures. My passion has always been jewelry and not just the high-end pieces! I love all of the different eras and how everyday life influenced the materials used, the various designs, folklore, and symbolism associated with each piece. When photographing our jewelry, I am able to look really closely to get a feeling for each item. Sometimes I imagine who the owner may have been and what they were like. It's truly a new adventure every day.
