Geoffrey Munn, jewellery specialist, presenter and author, in conversation with Joanna Hardy, independent fine jewellery specialist and Goldsmiths’ Company Trade Warden

Geoffrey shares stories and memories from his new memoirs chronicling his life and illustrious career in the fine jewellery industry with fellow BBC Antiques Roadshow jewellery specialist Joanna Hardy and with the audience. From Fabergé to the Royal Family, the characters are as glittering as the jewels, the stories witty and candid.
