Enjoy scrolling through a selection of the top present picks from these festive auctions as chosen by Sarah Fergusson, Head of Jewellery, Watches and Coins.
Lot 262 in The Jewellery Auction is a pair of very wearable tanzanite stud earrings. This gem is fairly rare, having only been discovered around 40 years ago. Priced at £50-80, these make an ideal gift for a friend or loved one. Lot 264 is an Art Deco diamond and gem set ring. Very versatile, it may be a dress ring but it is subtle enough to be worn every day. The estimate is £80-120.
Lot 268 is something a little different – this striking and generous diamond bangle is estimated at £3500-5500. Remember you can buy presents for yourself too!
Lot 293 is a beautiful Edwardian style sapphire and diamond ring. This one really stands out, estimated at £1500-2500 and really is an opportunity not to be missed.
Lot 753 is an ideal gift. This lady’s Cartier Santos wrist watch is striking and yet not too much, one to be worn with pride every day. Estimate £700-1000.
Lot 769 is one for the vintage watch enthusiast. This 1960s Omega really ticks the boxes, it needs a little work but nothing an enthusiast would shy away from. £250-350.
