Sarah Hue-Williams studied at Emmanuel College, Cambridge before turning to jewellery, which had long been her passion. After university she worked in every aspect of jewellery production: gemstone dealing, manufacturing, marketing, retailing and auctioneering, while at the same time studying gemmology in London, New York, California and Antwerp. Sarah studied at the Gemmological Association of Great Britain, qualifying as an FGA and DGA with distinction and winning the prestigious Anderson Medal. She also studied diamonds at the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California, and in Antwerp with the High Diamond Council (HRD), gaining her Diamond diploma with distinction.

As a consultant, teacher and lecturer, Sarah has worked with many of the leading names in the contemporary jewellery world, as well as at Christie’s where she worked closely with Raymond Sancroft-Baker researching jewels for some of the most significant jewellery auctions of recent years. She is the author of Christie’s Guide to Jewellery, published by Assouline in 2000, and Hidden Gems, Jewellery Stories from the Saleroom, published in October 2016 by Unicorn Press. A Kind of Magic is her third book, published in October 2017. Sarah currently divides her time between London and Sydney.
