Client Testimonial 

The course with William was really good and helpful.  I appreciate particularly that he managed to cater the course to make it relevant to my needs. He is a good listener and he was sensitive to my questions and the particulars of the Jewellery  I encounter in the Central European region. We had 2 very interesting sessions. For me, it was a pleasure to be able to analyse vintage pieces with an expert. A great learning experience.
