Antique & Modern Jewellery

The Antique & Modern Jewellery auction on Thursday 17th January is your last opportunity to buy a piece of luxury and refinement to be in time for Valentine's Day. As the date approaches, the retail landscape becomes increasingly more romantic and we're bombarded with the usual sights, sounds and smells that ensure we don't forget to dote on our darling come February 14th. However, the question over what to get our significant others is always a difficult one. In the face of such choice, how do we find something both individual and affordable that reflects the way we really feel about someone? For those hoping to propose this season this is especially true, as the choice of ring says so much about the personality of the intended recipient. Luckily January's sale has plenty of choice to inspire you with a large variety of different cuts, sizes and gem stones. If the classic brilliant-cut solitaire is to your taste, take a look at our back cover pieces (lots 325 and 389) weighing a sizeable 2.42 and 3.38cts respectively. If an oldcut better matches the character of your soon-to-be betrothed, take a look at lot 333 similarly featured on our back cover. We also have a great selection of square and rectangular-shape single stone rings (lots 162 and 137), as well as diamond clusters (lots 168 and 189) and those with a coloured gemstone highlight, such as the diamond and sapphire three-stone ring by Tiffany & Co. (lot 313). Complete with maker's box, this may be the perfect ring to make your Valentine's Day proposal totally romantic yet original.If your just looking for a special gift, flick through the pages and discover gems from one-off antique pieces, such as a mid-Victorian snake necklace (lot 99), or our front cover diamond crescent moon brooches (lots 349 and 355), to more modern tastes, such as a diamond bracelet with plenty of sparkle (lot 147). To ensure the men don't feel left out, we also have a sophisticated range of gent's gifts.
