Since the beginning of time, humans have maintained an obsession with objects. The owning and displaying of something rare and unique is a clear indication of wealth and power. This is evidenced in ancient civilisations, from Egyptian to Mayan, Roman to Ottoman and many more. Even religious scriptures recognise this fascinating human trait, as do folk-tales and fables passed down the generations. And so, in today’s modern world, it remains woven within our social fabric from East to West, North to South.
This history demonstrates that human treasures can bring forth a multitude of responses; pride, envy, embellishment, fashion, exhibition, security and secrecy. It also uncovers the powerful human desire to cherish things that are manufactured or man-made.
Our role at Rare & Unique is not to judge people’s reasons or question their motives. Instead, our part in the process is to understand their need, respect their privacy, then procure and deliver with style and grace.
We believe and live by the idea that ‘Anything is Possible’. In a world where money has few boundaries, our ambition is not only to always deliver, but exceed expectations.
