McTear's jewellery auction on Sunday 7 April was a dazzling event. Of the top ten selling lots, nine featured diamonds as their only precious stone.
Lot 4, a GIA certificated diamond ring came in second, set with an oval diamond this again sold to a bidder in the room and for £7000. But what of the vibrant coloured stone-set competing items?
Interested in period jewellery? There really was something for everyone in the auction. Lot 3 was a striking art deco diamond brooch. This saw competition in the room and from a telephone bidder. This bidder, based in rural Scotland, eventually won the lot for an impressive £800.
