Victorian & Edwardian Jewellery makes top hammer price at McTear's! Taking place quarterly, The Victorian and Edwardian Jewellery Auction on Thursday 26th March was once again a fantastic success, with two diamond set items achieving the highest hammer prices. Similarly to The Fine Jewellery Auction the night before, we can once again be sure that diamonds are always going to be on top, with lot 1952, an Art Deco diamond solitaire ring, and lot 1953, a Victorian diamond ring, both selling for £1100 respectively. Despite not being the most expensive lot of the afternoon, lot 1928 definitely was the most surprising. With the humble estimate of £50-80, the two early-twentieth century amethyst pendants made a surprising £750 hammer, making them a sleeper lot for sure! Although it has dropped in value in recent months, the butterscotch amber necklace at lot 1930 made a healthy £550 hammer, closely followed by 1821, a Victorian diamond ring that sold for a respectable £480. With an estimate of £200-400, lot 1834 far exceeded its £200-400 estimate, this was a rare and early memorial ring.

As we look ahead to The Jewellery Auction on the 29th of next month we can already say that the mix of jewellery old and new (including a few diamonds) is sure to exceed expectations with some surprise hammer prices. To consign to this auction, please email sarah@mctears.co.uk, elaine@mctears.co.uk or telephone 0141 810 2880
