Art Deco Necklace Heads a Fine Jewellery Sale...

22nd April 2021

Lawrences’ recent sale of jewellery comprised over 300 lots and eager bidding from the telephones and the internet resulted in some remarkable results across the board.

A fine quality gold bracelet, in its original James Crighton and Co case, exceeded hopes of £1200 to make £5000; a Regency gold bracelet with a portrait miniature of Mrs William Fraser set into it made £2750; an early Victorian diamond brooch made £5500; and a sapphire and diamond brooch, the sapphire convertible to a necklace centrepiece, made £6875.

A diamond bracelet, set with eleven circular diamonds, was also bid keenly beyond its estimate to make £6875; and a stylish Art Deco lady’s diamond cocktail wristwatch, the watch by Audemars Piguet, in a Van Cleef & Arpels case made £16,250.

Rings, as always, were in great demand: a topaz and diamond ring made £3750; a George III diamond ring made £8125; and a diamond solitaire ring with a central 2.04 carat stone made £12375.

Two unusual pieces made strong prices: a Victorian diamond necklace, converting to a tiara, doubled hopes of £5000 to make a £10,625; and an Art Deco diamond necklace with detachable elements to allowing the pieces to be worn as a pendant, a brooch, two bracelets and a smaller necklace. With an estimate of £25000-30000, this fine quality lot made £27500.

“Congratulations on what looked like a very successful sale ! You never mentioned that you did the auctioneering as well ... talk about doing the whole job ... see it into the building, find out what it is, decide if it’s for the Fine Art sale or the General Sale, lot it and describe it accordingly, and then sell it ... that really does count as seeing the job through from start to finish! Whilst the job isn’t over yet, it really is a case of so far, so good ... some items have sold for sums that exceeded our expectations, with one item in particular fetching a truly remarkable sum, so we’re very happy indeed... we’ve noted how accurate the guide prices are ... and how gratifying it is when the bidding goes sailing past the guide ! I found the whole week to be both gripping entertainment and pleasingly rewarding financially. Please accept my sincerest congratulations for a job well done, and we’ll look forward to the October and November Sales with bated breath ...”
