What Makes Catawiki the Place to Sell Extraordinary Items?

You might think “It will never happen to me!” until one day, rummaging in an old box you discover a first edition book from the 1800s or - perhaps as one fisherman recently made the news with - the world’s largest pearl under your bed! At that point you think “What on earth can I do with this?”

Auctioneer Jewellery

Rinse Kamphuis

I admire the craftsmanship you see in handmade jewellery.

  • Over 20 years' experience
  • Broad knowledge of jewellery and antiques
  • Large network

Rinse Kamphuis has the memory of an elephant and enjoys putting it to good use. Inspired, amongst other things, by the TV program ‘Tussen Kunst en Kitsch’ (Antiques Roadshow), he started a business in jewellery and antiques. Along the way, he continued to learn more about different kinds of jewellery and the market as a whole. This in turn quickly taught him how to make the right purchases. Over the years, Rinse has come to specialise in antique and contemporary jewellery.

Rinse is a man of action – he cannot stand sitting still. This makes him an ideal auctioneer. In his years at Catawiki, he has seen many thousands of jewellery lots auctioned, and this experience has added to his huge range of expertise. Under his gaze, items put up for auction reveal their true value. His own preference is for jewellery which bears visible signs of the maker’s skill and craftsmanship. But even common jewellery can find a place in his auctions.
