We have been catching up with Annabel Zarandi, an FGA Qualified Jewellery Specialist, about her role at Unbolted as Valuations Manager.
7am. Working hours of 9am-6pm
Liaising with clients regarding their valuations, liaising with auction houses and specialists and conducting my own jewellery valuations
I started off working for one of the major auction houses in their customer services team, and then progressed my way to their jewellery department
Every day is different, I see a real variety of items. We are also lucky to have very lovely clients. There really aren’t many negatives with my job, I suppose its never nice to have to explain to people that their items aren’t worth as much as they thought, but that’s the nature of the beast
Don’t be afraid to write and ask for work experience, its amazing how many companies really welcome this and I wish I would have done this more, especially during school and Uni holidays.
