Jewels are fantastic objects with their own history.
During his law studies, Ted Coert realised that he wanted to do something completely different: history of art. So that is exactly what he did and developed a true passion for art and old jewellery. He specialised in jewellery and gained a lot of practical experience at auction houses, jewellers and diamond dealers. There he became especially fascinated by the theory behind materials and gemstones. That is why Ted Coert headed to London, where he obtained a degree in gemmology. From there he went onto the high-end jewellery world, working alongside the big names in the luxury industry. Although he really enjoys this type of jewellery and work, he also longed for the thrill of auctions.
This is how Catawiki came into the picture. The combination of auctions, collectors and commerce inspires him enormously in his work as an expert. He is always sharp and looks at his objects with a developed eye for detail. With this positive attitude, Ted Coert creates exciting auctions, with the most beautiful rings, bracelets and earrings from leading brands such as Cartier, Bulgari and Van Cleef & Arpels. In this way, he provides both bidders and sellers with unique opportunities and good results.
