I sometimes can’t believe how beautiful the gems on offer are.
A love of auctions is in Taletta Janson’s blood. Her mother worked for an art auction and she became hooked when she went to help as a Saturday job. She discovered all the tension and dynamics associated with auctions and quickly realised this was where she wanted to work.
That was why Taletta decided to study art history: It was her ticket to the auction world. At least until she’d finished her studies, when she remembered another childhood passion: gemstones. She had to work with these precious stones somehow, so she focused on studying gemmology at the English Gemmological Association. Using all the knowledge and skills she acquired, she set up her own handmade jewellery company. Then she came across Catawiki.
Taletta knows that an auctioneer can provide major added value to the gemstone auction. With her knowledge and trained eye, she knows all the qualities that make the difference between a pretty stone and a masterpiece. Taletta loves to come across a beautiful ruby or tanzanite, but also hopes to include more expensive variants of lesser-known gems in her auctions, such as a brilliant tourmaline or spinel, together with an official gemmological report!
