CURRICULUM VITAE: Robert M. Bunda

"In 1972 I became involved with the Decorative Arts in my Family’s Antique Business in Australia that specializes in Diamond, Pearl, Antique & Estate Jewelry. In 1987 I relocated to NYC where I worked for the auction house Doyle New York. In 1989 I took up a position with Christie’s Jewelry Department on Park Avenue where I provided Diamond, Antique & Estate Jewelry Appraisal, Estimates & Condition Reports. In 1993, I established my own Jewelry Appraisal business at my present location within Rockefeller Center in NYC.

As a professional Diamond, Antique & Estate Jewelry Appraiser, it is my responsibility to give clients the professional, impartial and non-biased information they need to know."
