A Graduate Gemologist with nearly 13 years of experience in the auction and antique jewelry market, including eight in New York, Bratberg brings a keen eye and a wealth of appraisal and customer relations experience to her role. She will be supported by Skinner’s diverse roster of experts across all specialty areas.
