Positively charming

Charms have been worn for centuries as a symbol to represent a part of the wearer’s life. Whether worn to represent the wearer’s interests, religious beliefs, loved ones or simply for decorative purposes, charms come in a fittingly diverse variety of forms and designs. 


A charming galleon ship pendant is offered at lot 217, formed as a ship with three tall sails. This lovely little ship boasts intricate detailing and is befitting for the lover of life on the high seas. Similarly well suited for the traveller, the high flier or for the flying aficionado, lot 156 is a charm modelled in the form of a propeller. These charms are sure to fly on auction day, with auction estimates of £70–100 and £180–220 respectively. 

Many see charms as the perfect way to recognise occasions, achievements or personal interests. The ongoing appeal of charm bracelets was confirmed recently with the success of charm bracelets in the July Jewellery Auction. Whether for yourself or a loved one, this month is the perfect time to embrace a little charm, with a number of lovely lots featuring in the upcoming Jewellery Auction at McTear’s on 29 August. 


Prefer to stay grounded? A car motif pendant features at lot 165, ideal to mark an interest in cars or to celebrate a shiny new driver’s license. This charm comes with an auction estimate of £120–180. 

Featuring unusual examples, such as a green stone claw pendant (lot 216), and popular classics such as a crucifix pendant (lot 149) and a colourful gem set gold bear motif pendant (lot 143), the upcoming Jewellery Auction on Sunday boasts a bountiful collection of charms. With jewellery to mark every occasion, taste and budget, you’re sure to be charmed this month at McTear’s.
