Top Price Swings Towards and Opal Pendant...

5th July 2018

In our recent busy and successful auction of jewellery and watches, there were plenty of strong prices for the wide variety of lots on offer.

Two lots destined for a gentleman rather than the (more usual) ladies’ jewellery on offer included a pair of gold and carved cornelian cufflinks which sold handsomely above expectations at £3900 and an 18ct gold half hunting cased pocket watch on a chain by Robert Roskell which ticked its way to £1890.

Rings also sold well: an Art Deco emerald and diamond ring raced over expectations of £400-500 to make £3290; a Tiffany & Co sapphire and diamond triple cluster ring took £5490; and a Colombian emerald and diamond ring made £6580. 

A diamond necklace set with 134 graduated brilliant-cut diamonds made £4390 but it was brooches and pendants that led the day. A diamond solitaire pendant with a single 1.55 carat stone made £3660; a late Victorian sapphire and diamond brooch pendant took four times the top estimate at £3900; and a lustrous 4.81 carat Australian black opal and diamond pendant flickered alluringly to take £8540.
