Diamonds Lead the Day but a Rare Rolex Ticks Up a Good Price...

18th October 2018

Our Autumn sale of jewellery and watches offered nearly 400 lots ranging from as little as £100 to £15000.

The day’s top prices focused upon items of quality, rarity and good design. An emerald and diamond cluster ring comprised a cushion-shaped central stone surrounded by eight brilliant-cut diamonds and was bid to £5360. A diamond necklace formed with thirteen graduated old brilliant-cut diamonds doubled its low estimate to take £6580. A gold and enamel mourning pendant for the Duke of Wellington (1769-1852), containing a woven pad of his hair within a blue enamel surround, was dated to the year of his death and exceeded its estimate of £800-1000 to make £2190. A gentleman’s stainless steel Oyster Perpetual Explorer wristwatch by Rolex dated from 1969 and also exceeded its estimate to make an impressive £13400 whilst the day’s top price was paid for a diamond solitaire ring set with a 3.2 carat central stone and baguette-cut stones to each shoulder. After some spirited bidding between the room and the telephone, it was bought for £15,250, within expectations.
