About Us and (More Importantly) About You:
Firstly let’s get the boring bit out of the way – that’s the ‘About Us’ info.
David and Patricia have been involved in the Antique Jewelry Trade for over 35 years, both in the UK and for the past 25 years in beautiful Australia.
Before retiring (or so he thought) David owned three Jewelry Retail outlets and is a qualified Gemologist and former member of the Valuers Council.
He also Taught Gemology at Wollongong Technical and Further Education College, and trained students at Wollongong University and other local institutions.
His passion is writing and is a National Award winning author.
Now very much involved in the development of software for Valuation Appraisal programs, together with his wife Patricia (as a experienced Taxation Consultant she runs the business) and his son Chris, a fastidious Manufacturing Jeweler in his own right, they have brought their special skills and talents to the Internet.
This is their latest part time hobby (ha-ha as it takes about 80 hours per week).
