I entered the jewellery trade at the tender age of 23. By 27, I was running the main jewellery department in Harrods. After several successful years, I joined the Mappin & Webb Group.At 31, I became the Managing Director of Garrard, the Crown Jewellers. Subsequently, I ran both Garrard and Mappin & Webb.
In 1992, I became President of Asprey USA, based in New York. For the last four years, I am pleased to serve as a Trustee of the National Galleries of Scotland. I was appointed a Deputy to the Lord Lieutenant of the City of Edinburgh in January 2016
I now head up my own company, backed by my team of specialists and virtually 40 years experience at the highest level in the jewellery trade. We buy Jewellery, Diamonds, Gemstones, Gold, Silver, Watches, Fine Art and Furniture.
