Stunning Tiara Heads Up a Sparkling Jewellery Sale...

23rd July 2021

Luxury was evidently in demand at Lawrences' 450-lot auction of jewellery and the saleroom reported a remarkable run of astonishing prices.

The sale began on a high note as an appealing selection of jewellery in a leather box raced up to £4375. Thereafter, the pace scarcely dropped a beat. A pair of Victorian diamond drop earrings made £3500; a superb amethyst riviere necklace was bid to £4500; a striking diamond and black onyx bracelet by Boucheron was contested to £5000; and an Art Deco diamond double clip brooch was bought  for £5250.

Three necklaces, sold as consecutive lots, made a fine run: a diamond collar necklace made £4250, an 18ct gold necklace by Lalaounis made £4750 and a gold necklace of rope design by Hermes doubled hopes to make £10,000.

The two most eagerly contested rings did well: a Victorian five-stone diamond ring made £8000 and a 3.7carat Alexandrite and diamond cluster ring was clinched for £12500.

The sale was led by a superb Victorian tiara, formed in nine sections, and set with old-cut diamonds and rose-cut diamonds. The elegance of the design, the craftsmanship of the construction and the consistent quality of the stones ensured that its estimate of £15000-20000 would be surpassed by the securing bid of £30,000.
