Philips Auctions forthcoming jewellery sale from 6pm Monday August 3 at 47 Glenferrie Road, Malvern continues a strong trend in this area for the auction house as vendors look to sell some of their more significant pieces for Spring.
Quality is once more the catchcry as, under the watchful eye of resident gemmologist Tanya Philips, Philips Auctions furthers its reputation as an ideal venue to purchase jewellery valuable for both investment purposes and as the perfect gift.
According to Tanya Philips, quality offerings are more important than aesthetic appeal.
“I must acknowledge that my taste should not influence a particular buyer’s choice when it comes to something they might want to purchase,” she says.
From an investment and aesthetic viewpoint in this forthcoming sale, a 5.6-carat solitaire diamond (lot 100) with a catalogue estimate of $40,000-$50,000 could be the perfect choice.
There also is a fine quality 1.25-carat D colour VS (very slight) clarity diamond cluster ring (lot 88) that is estimated at $10,000-$15,000 and could send buyers into a frenzy.
From a private Sydney collection comes a selection of Bvlgari jewellery (lots 147-149) including Cerchi earrings, a diamond set necklace and diamond set earrings.
Silver Tiffany jewellery (from a vendor who worked for the company) is another strong attraction and includes a Somerset ring (lot 208), a wire silver bracelet (lot 227), silver earrings (lot 229), Atlas stacker rings (lot 233 and 274), enamelled ring (lot 251), and heart ring (lot 269).
