“A BRIEF HISTORY OF GEMSTONES”
Presenter RACHEL BOOTHROYD of Cooper & Tanner
A Brief History of Gemstones: a talk about the formation of gemstones and their various discoveries over the years, with a short introduction to gemstone testing and identification, and the current market.
Rachel has worked in the jewellery industry since leaving school, and in auction houses for the last seven of those years. Gemstones are her passion, she loves the intricacies and variety of them. The history of them is also fascinating, even the mistakes we have made about them along the way! As well as being a jewellery specialist Rachel is a general valuer with a particular interest in textiles; and an auctioneer.
