Diamonds lead the day...
Lawrences’ recent auction of jewellery and watches in Crewkerne reported consistent successes and there were plenty of strong prices to boost the day’s turnover.
A gentleman’s steel `Explorer` wristwatch by Rolex from the early 1970’s topped its estimate to make £8500 and a pair of diamond stud earrings made £6580. A host of strong bids at the end of the sale saw £4880 paid for a Victorian diamond, enamel and gold bracelet, £7300 for a diamond necklace set with 95 graduated diamonds, £9760 paid for an Art Deco ruby and diamond ring and £10000 paid for a magnificent diamond solitaire ring with a 2.2 carat stone.
“We had an excellent sale,” commented Lawrences’ jewellery specialist, Miranda Bingham. “From start to finish, there was enthusiasm right across the sale with particularly good prices paid for gold items and there were many bids for the ever-dependable strength of interest in high quality stones. Diamonds are still the most sought after but the £8000 paid for the Art Deco ruby set ring shows that interest from buyers extends across all styles and stones. We are already assembling a strong sale for July in all departments and entries are warmly invited.”
