Enduring Emerald Hammer Results at McTear's! The Jewellery Auction this January, the first of 2016, offered up many interesting lots but it was the emerald that ruled supreme! The two best selling items in the auction was lot 1817, an impressive pair of emerald and diamond cluster earrings, and 1820, an emerald and diamond cluster ring. Both achieved the glittering hammer price of £3000.

Amber also continued to sell well, with lot 1709, a fine butterscotch amber beaded necklace, selling for £900 hammer. This impressive hammer price was made all the more satisfying by the fact that all proceeds went to The Children’s Hospice Association Scotland. McTear’s is delighted to have helped raise money for such a worthwhile cause.

Celtic silver jewellery proved its enduring appeal. Lot 1766, which contained a fine foliate brooch by Alexander Ritchie, sold for £200 hammer which was more than double its estimate!
