About the Speakers

Leo Criaco, Jewelry Senior Specialist

Leo Criaco joined Christie’s Geneva in 2015 as a Senior Specialist. Originally from Italy, Leo moved to London in 2006, starting off as an apprentice at the prestigious jewellers Bentley & Skinner. With over seven years of experience in sales and client development, he later moved his focus to the trade before moving to Geneva and joining the auction world. A diamond graduate from the British Gemmological Association (D.G.A.), Leo plays a central role for Christie’s across all facets of the business including consignments, client development and valuations, with a specific focus on the Italian and Spanish market. In 2017 Leo pioneered the ‘Dolce Vita’ collection – a superbly curated selection of Italian jewellery, including an important Bulgari pendant necklace belonging to the famous actress Silvana Mangano – and in May 2019 played an integral part in the sale of an important 22.86 carats Burmese ruby which achieved $7,200,000.
