Damian Miles

Expert Gemstones

Gemstones are more than a passion, they’re like an addiction.

Damian Miles’ fascination for gemstones started when he was 8 years old when he found a fossil in the forest. This once living creature, which continued to live on as a stone, made him realise that even stones have their own lifecycles. He started collecting more fossils and minerals with his pocket money, supplemented by his first job at the local jeweller. Gradually, Damian Miles worked his way up to management of a large jeweller. There he had an important role in buying and assembling the jeweller’s collection. This way, he has come across thousands of pieces of jewellery, gemstones, diamonds and other jewels and he knows the jeweller’s world like the back of his hand.

If there’s something that Damian Miles has learned in his more than 25 years in the field, it is that gemstones will keep on surprising you. That’s why he keeps taking advanced training courses on an annual basis and he keeps track of the latest developments. Damian Miles loves perfect gemstones which have a special cut or a distinct colour, but has a particular fascination with gemstones that display unique or unusual properties. He also likes gemstones with beautiful details that tell the story of their origin. He accepts all different types in his auctions, so the true collector has something to look forward to each and every week.
