JEWELLERY HIGHLIGHTS : SEPTEMBER 2018

20/08/2018     Jewellery

Our September Fine Art Sale kicks of Wednesday 12th September, and we're taking a look at just a few of the highlights from our diverse collection of jewellery and watches.

Diamond Art Deco 18ct white gold and platinum cocktail bracelet : £40,000 - £60,000

One of our star lots is this staggering French diamond Art Deco 18ct white gold and platinum cocktail bracelet. With a total diamond weight of 20 carats, this bracelet boasts both exceptional design and quality. Consultant David Byrne (FGA, DGA, FIRV) has assessed the central baguette cut diamond as 1.75ct, colour E/F, clarity VVS/VS, with the diamonds in the surrounding cluster and bracelet of a matching quality. While we are unable to find a discernable mark indicating a maker, it's quality of craft and materials are comparable to some of the top jewellers of the 20th century.

A fancy natural intense yellow diamond and white diamond 3-stone platinum ring : £1500 - £2000

Other stand-out diamonds in this sale include a natural fancy intense yellow diamond 3-stone ring, estimated at £1500 - £2000. The ring stands out not only for it's vibrant yellow hue, but also for it's rarity; approximately 1 in every 10,000 carats of diamond is coloured! 

 

Sapphire and diamond fancy oval cluster ring : £10,000 - £12,000

Also featuring in this sale is a 10ct sapphire and diamond cluster ring. This ring is not only notable for it's size, but for it's fantastic colour, typical of 'Ceylon' sapphires. These stones, native to Sri Lanka, are famed for their vibrant medium blue hues, of which this ring is a great example.

18ct white gold sapphire and diamond flower head cluster ring: £1000 - £1500

One of our other favourites is this 4-stone sapphire and diamond flower head cluster ring. Traditionally, sapphires are thought of as blue, but they can occur in a vast array of colours. The stone's in this ring are a unique purple-pink hue, giving a great twist on a classic style ring.

 

Left to Right: Breitling for Bentley Limited Edition Wristwatch : £10,000 - £12,000, Breitling Montbrilliant Olympus Moonphase Wristwatch: £8,000 - £10,000, Rare Limited Edition Breitling platinum Navitimer : £12,000 - £14,000

Aside from jewellery, we will be auctioning a highly anticipated collection of rare wristwatches from a single collection, which boasts a fine selection of Breitling wristwatches. Also included in this collection are models by Chopard, Rolex and Frank Muller. Certainly one to watch if you're an avid watch collector!
