Each piece of jewellery has its own unique appeal.
Piero de Stefano grew up in a jewellery orientated family. However, it was only after his law study that he was captivated by the subject. He went to study gemology in America, where he was taught to look to gems scientifically. Once back in Rome, he was driven to continue with his passion. Therefore he became a teacher and director at the gemmological institute in Rome. In addition, he was an independent valuer and owner of four jewellery stores. Nowadays, Piero de Stefano has taken a step back. He teaches at the University and is still an independent valuer. In addition, he works for Catawiki.
It’s clear that Piero de Stefano has an enormous knowledge and experience. In his life he has seen millions of jewels. With this knowledge, he curates the auction for exclusive jewellery. When assessing his lots, he always asks: what makes this piece special? Does this trigger an emotion? Besides the design and quality, that is the most important thing. In addition, Piero de Stefano applies strict requirements to determine the authenticity of the lots. This ensures bidders will have peace of mind on the quality of the jewellery that sparks a special emotion for them.
