Art Deco Necklace Heads a Fine Jewellery Sale...

22nd April 2021

Lawrences’ recent sale of jewellery comprised over 300 lots and eager bidding from the telephones and the internet resulted in some remarkable results across the board.

A fine quality gold bracelet, in its original James Crighton and Co case, exceeded hopes of £1200 to make £5000; a Regency gold bracelet with a portrait miniature of Mrs William Fraser set into it made £2750; an early Victorian diamond brooch made £5500; and a sapphire and diamond brooch, the sapphire convertible to a necklace centrepiece, made £6875.

A diamond bracelet, set with eleven circular diamonds, was also bid keenly beyond its estimate to make £6875; and a stylish Art Deco lady’s diamond cocktail wristwatch, the watch by Audemars Piguet, in a Van Cleef & Arpels case made £16,250.

Rings, as always, were in great demand: a topaz and diamond ring made £3750; a George III diamond ring made £8125; and a diamond solitaire ring with a central 2.04 carat stone made £12375.

Two unusual pieces made strong prices: a Victorian diamond necklace, converting to a tiara, doubled hopes of £5000 to make a £10,625; and an Art Deco diamond necklace with detachable elements to allowing the pieces to be worn as a pendant, a brooch, two bracelets and a smaller necklace. With an estimate of £25000-30000, this fine quality lot made £27500.
