DAZZLING DIAMONDS

Posted Date: 08 June 2016

 
The Jewellery Auction which took place on Wednesday 1st June was an exciting event as usual with two very substantial diamond solitaire rings selling. Lot 1700A was a diamond at 1.82 carats set in platinum which achieved £7,500 hammer and this was closely followed by lot 1807, a beautiful Edwardian diamond ring that made an impressive £7000.

Diamonds dominated the top ten sellers from the auction with the diamond bracelet at lot 1792 selling for £3,800 and the lovely diamond two stone ring lot 1875 fetching £3,200.

You cannot beat Cartier for French simplicity and elegance and the bidders on the night certainly agreed. Lot 1720, the pearl and diamond earrings achieved £2,800 selling to a phone bidder in London.

Amber continues to surprise and is certainly back on the up with lot 1861 an amber necklace making £1400 and 1941 selling for £700. Much of the interest on the night was from online bidders.

The July Jewellery Auction is now open and closes to entries on 23rd June, please contact sarah@mctears.co.uk or elaine@mctears.co.uk or come to our salerooms office hours to consign.
