Once more it was diamonds that outshone all other lots in The Jewellery Auction that took place on Sunday 3rd July.

Causing quite a buzz during viewings it was lot 272, a solitaire of approximately 2.15 carats, which achieved the highest hammer price of the auction selling for £6200 to a bidder in the room. Earlier in the auction, lot 5 sold for £5400 to an online buyer, and this was a substantial diamond at 3.21 carats. Lot 315, the diamond line bracelet, made an impressive £3600 and was closely followed by the diamond three stone ring at lot 249 which sold for £2600.

Of the coloured stones, it was the yellow sapphire and diamond cluster ring that surpassed expectations selling for £2600. A close second came in the form of lot 316, the ruby and diamond ring that went to an online buyer for £2200.

Cartier led the big name sellers with lot 143, earrings and a bangle, selling mid-estimate for £1500.

Amber continues to surpass expectations with the amber necklace at lot 55 selling for £1200, three times the lower estimate.
