Jewels of the past proving popular at auction  Wednesday evening’s Jewellery Auction was another successful auction. As is very often the case, it was the period jewellery that really shone.
The auction kicked off to a great start with a favourite of the McTear’s staff, lot 1626, the Edwardian Diamond Two Stone Ring, which absolutely soared past its £600-1000 estimate and finally sold for £1500. However, the most impressive lot, perhaps, was 1633, the Ruby and Diamond Cluster Ring, which far exceeded its £500-700 estimate when the hammer also fell at a whopping £1500.
The trend for Period Jewellery continued throughout the sale with various other items making excellent sums. Lot 1631, a Pair of Victorian Turquoise Set Drop Earrings sold for double the top end of the estimate for £300. Lot 1711, an Early Twentieth Century Norwegian Silver Necklace was also popular and made the top end of the estimate at £150. And finally, mention must be made to lot 1801, an Edwardian Peridot and Seed Pearl Pendant, which breezed past the £100-150 estimate to finally sell at £220.
March will see two separate jewellery auctions at McTear’s. The Fine Jewellery Auction will take place on the 25th March, and The Victorian, Edwardian and Scottish Jewellery Auction will take place on the 26th March.
