Let E be a non-trivial finite Galois extension of a field K. In this paper we investigate the role that valuation-theoretic properties of E/K play in determining the non-triviality of the relative Brauer group, Br(E/K), of E over K. In particular, we show that when K is finitely generated of transcendence degree 1 over a p-adic field k and q is a prime dividing [E: K], then the following conditions are equivalent: (i) the q-primary component, Br(E/K)q, is non-trivial, (ii) Br(E/K)q is infinite, and (iii) there exists a valuation π of E trivial on k such that q divides the order of the decomposition group of E/K at π .
