About us - Auction house

Curio is the first and only auction house in Italy specialised in online auctions of vintage jewellery, contemporary jewellery, watches and high fashion jewellery. The headquarters is located in the historical centre of Florence, Lungarno Amerigo Vespucci n.6/R, close to piazza Santa Maria Novella and Ponte Vecchio.

Curio Auction House was born from the desire of Laura Patrizia Barbieri to create an auction house that was also a meeting place, where those passionate for the jewelry sector can find any type of jewellery, from the rare and signed ones, to design pieces, from the most simple ones, but always interesting.  Curio Auction House is place where, from the estimate to the sale of a preciuos item, customers can be followed and advised with professionalism and cure.

Despite the Italian staff and the Florentine representative office, the valuations and sales will appeal to an international audience. In fact, if on one hand, some of our experts are always active in all of the national territory, organising days of free valuations and meetings with clients, on the other, through the constantly updated website, the Auction House has a great visibility worldwide. Curio Florence organises up to six auctions a year of Jewellery and Watches, and also has a variety of precious items that can be directly purchased for those clients who would prefer not to have to wait a longer period of time for the auction sales.

From estimates to sales, Curio Auction House in Florence is committed to evaluating the objects entrusted to them and to propose them within the worldwide market through careful cured advertising campaigns, througout the web and written press as well as through their international contacts.
