Diamonds are still forever...

14th April 2019

The second day of Lawrences’ Spring Fine Art sale included 380 lots of jewellery and watches and, once again, diamonds proved to be dependably popular but many other strong prices showed a broadbased strength in the market. In particular two watches performed well: a lady’s gold Oyster Perpetual Datejust by Rolex made £3250 and a gentleman’s gold automatic watch by Patek Philippe ticked up to £5250. Amongst the jewellery lots, a Victorian carved hardstone and gold necklace and brooch by Harvey & Gore caught many eyes before making £9375 but, in the main, diamond-set items proved to be the most appealing. Highlights included £7500 for a diamond bracelet; £8750 for a three stone diamond ring; £9375 for a ruby and diamond ring, this price at five times expectations; and £8750 for an elegant Edwardian diamond brooch. The sale’s two top prices were paid for a diamond necklace of foliate form at £12,500 and a sapphire and diamond three stone ring, the 2.5 carat untreated sapphire lifting bids to £15000. The sale total was just under £320,000.
