Antique & Modern Jewellery

Is it too late to Welcome to our December Antique and Modern Jewellery Auction, and we really are seeing off 2014 in style! The first item of note gracing our front cover is lot 118, a riviere set with 98 dazzling diamonds! This is a true showstopper necklace, perfect for any stylish lady?s Christmas list. Our back cover lot is a beautiful early 20th century brooch, by August Hollming who was an workmaster for Faberge in the early 1900s (lot 210). Oozing style and quality, this sapphire and diamond brooch is a wonderful violet-blue colour, and is featured as a full page in the catalogue. We are also offering the rare opportunity to own a stunning piece of jewellery with Royal provenance ? we are proud to be able to offer two stick pins formerly in the collection of The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, as well three pieces of jewellery that once belonged to H.R.H. Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, beautiful pieces with exceptional provenance. Lot 100 is a gold and diamond panel bracelet, and lot 101 is a striking Belle Epoque diamond and ruby ring. The ring was gifted to H.R.H. The Duchess of York (later Queen Mary) from her father-in-law H.R.H. The Prince of Wales in 1893, and is accompanied by a certificate of provenance. Another lot well worth looking at is a cased Asprey diamond set stick pin owned by style icon Wallis Simpson (lot 98). As we are now officially on the countdown to Christmas, we have plenty of sparkle in keeping with the festive season. We have a selection of impressive diamond solitaire rings, lots 290 and 106 weighing in at 2.57 and 3.17 carats respectively. There are also some beautiful old cut diamond ear studs, lot 138, which weigh up to 3 carats in total.
