If we’re being totally honest, we know buying and selling fine jewellery isn’t as easy as consigning that old pair of shoes you never wear, or getting rid of last seasons bag. Fine jewellery is precious, rare, vintage, an investment. The Luxury Closet understands the value that is contained within the fine jewellery that you own, and we want you to know that you’ll be selling it safely and securely. Our experts are uniquely placed in their categories to authenticate, purchase and value items with large resale value.
Silvia Fraachia is the Category Manager of The Luxury Closet’s Fine Jewelry Department. A respected jewellery, gem and precious metal expert, she appraises and sells all categories of fine jewellery from early nineteenth century to modern designs by contemporary artists.
Silvia joined The Luxury Closet from Italy, where she worked at Chantecler for five years assisting the owner and creative director in everything from sourcing the stones at markets and liaising with the designer on cut, pricing and prototypes, all the way to its retail and customer walking out the shop. Whilst in Italy, Silvia also obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Business from Università Cattolica in Milan.
Since moving to the UAE, Silvia has completed an extensive and impressive amount of courses in the industry, from International Gemological Institute in the UAE, obtaining diplomas such as a Graduate Gemologist Diploma, Colored Gemstones Grader Diploma and Diamond Graduate Diploma where she learned about diamonds, pearls, gemstones and everything in between!
Thanks to undertaking courses such as Luxury Fashion Brand Management from London College of Fashion, Silvia boasts sharp business acumen and a deep understanding of the jewellery market.
