Justin Roberts, jewellery expert at Sotheby’s will be in St Albans on Tuesday 17 November 2015 offering complimentary valuations. He has over 20 years’ experience as a senior jewellery specialist, and has worked on the valuation and sale of some of the most notable jewellery collections including those of The Duchess of Windsor, Catherine the Great and the Duchess of Roxburghe.

Justin will be joined by a team from Hertfordshire independent valuers, Anderson Associates. Jane Anderson has over 30 years’ experience in auctioneering and valuations, setting up her own business in 2002.

Silver specialist, Lorraine Turner, will also be on hand to provide valuations. Her impressive career has included managing the antiques department at Fortnum and Mason.
