Stunning Tiara Heads Up a Sparkling Jewellery Sale...

11th October 2019

Lawrences’ 370-lot auction of jewellery and watches contained plenty of surprises and, although the best lots performed with dependable excellence, there were many unexpectedly good prices along the way. 

A Georgian garnet and enamel ring soared above hopes to make £5500 and an unusual pair of ruby and diamond earrings in the form of arrows flew to £6750. A sapphire and diamond cluster ring set the tone for demand for quality as it made £6875 against hopes of £1200 and an emerald and diamond cluster brooch, set with a 9-carat Colombian emerald, reached beyond its estimate of £5000-7000 to make £10,000.

Some of the strongest prizes were saved to the end of the sale: a unique and exquisitely delicate diamond brooch, set with yellow and white diamonds and fire opals, hid a special secret  - it opened to reveal a portrait of its owner, the late actress Dinah Sheridan, by Douglas Anderson. This made £7500.  A magnificent diamond solitaire ring, set with a 3.05 carat brilliant-cut stone, made £18750. Finally, an elegant Edwardian tiara that could be adapted into a brooch and a necklace combined quality of craftsmanship with stunning design and it doubled its estimate to take £47500.
