Jewellery and Watches
Amy Brenan began her career in the auction industry as general valuer following her degree in English Studies at the University of Exeter. Covering all disciplines from furniture to silver, paintings to ceramics, she held her first sale on the rostrum aged 21.
Amy has extensive experience in the field of antique jewellery having spent ten years of her career as Head of Jewellery at Dukes auctioneers in Dorset. She has valued and successfully sold many important pieces over the years including a Mughal emerald turban brooch by Paul Iribe which later formed part of the Al Thani collection and a Polish Renaissance enamelled pendant which sold to the Royal Castle Museum in Warsaw. She has also been fortunate enough to sell, value and conserve important collections of jewellery and silver from significant stately homes.
Amy runs her own jewellery business in Wareham Dorset, which specialises in all aspects of antique jewellery, watches and silver, with a focus on valuation and conservation. She also works as a consultant valuer for RDF television and has written and published articles for magazines including ' Homes and Antiques'.
Amy is a qualified member of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A), the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and a member of the Society of Jewellery Historians.
In October 2019, Amy provided valuation input on jewellery and wristwatches as part of a joint report for matrimonial purposes for solicitors in Wales.Email Amy
