    Victoria Bratberg Victoria Bratberg is the Director of Skinner's Fine Jewelry Department. A respected jewelry and gem expert, she appraises and brings to auction all categories of fine jewelry from early 19th-century to modern designs by contemporary artists. Victoria joined Skinner after serving as a buyer of fine jewelry, watches, and luxury goods for Circa Jewelry in New York.

    Prior to Circa, Victoria led the Arcade Jewelry Department at Sotheby's in New York. Promoted to head of the department after only one year, she used her sharp business acumen and deep understanding of this market to achieve record results, including the department's first sale of more than $1 million.

    Passionate about classic 1940s jewelry, Victoria started designing her own pieces inspired by the timeless, feminine styles of this period. She eventually left Sotheby's to found Victoria Bratberg Jewelry, successfully developing and marketing her own line of jewelry.

    Victoria holds a bachelor of arts degree in the history of art from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas. She is also a Graduate Gemologist, having received her training from the Gemological Institute of America in New York. She currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts.
