Always well-prepared, McTear’s saleroom had plenty of seats in the Jewellery Auction for buyers to take shelter from the pouring rain! Although the weather may have been dreary, the auction was far from it, with the much admired lot 315 taking the top spot.
The unusual five row diamond bracelet, which graced the front cover of the catalogue, sold for £12,880 including fees to an international buyer.
Unusually, the second and third top selling items were not diamonds but a tanzanite and diamond ring (lot 330A) and a 1960s gold bracelet (lot 395) both of which sold for £2447 including fees. Each of these lots sold to local buyers.
Why not come and enjoy the excitement of a live auction yourself? The next Jewellery Auction will be held on the 13th of March – unlucky for some but perhaps you'll strike it lucky!
McTear’s sells more jewellery than any other traditional auction house in the dedicated jewellery auctions that take place twice monthly, run concurrently live online on a platform that attracts six million visitors annually from over 120 countries worldwide.
