Auction jewellery ideas for Christmas
Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 27th November, 2017
A 6.49 carat diamond ring with a $120,000-$140,000 estimate could be the ideal Christmas gift for the woman who appreciates classic beauty at Mossgreen’s forthcoming Jewels & Watches auction from 2pm Monday November 27 at 926-930 High Street, Armadale Victoria.
Made of 18-carat white gold and accompanied by a GIA diamond grading report dated November 22, 2006, the ring appears on the catalogue cover and is the obvious highlight of the sale.
However, there are plenty of other more affordable gift ideas including a range of designer handbags such as several Louis Vuitton, Ailleurs Cabas, Olympe Nimbus and Chanel – which has several black caviar, white and beige Boy Bags for the discerning buyer.
Among the better quality jewellery is a gold Gentiane collar from Cartier circa 1997 and a diamond, emerald and enamel ‘Lion Ebouriff’ clip brooch from Van Cleef & Arpels, circa 1965.
Other highlights include a pink diamond suite – comprising ring, earrings and pendant weighing 2.5 carats – and a diamond pendant with a central round brilliant cut diamond weight 3.06 carats.
A diamond collar of fringed design, with the triple row front section graduating to a double row of bezel set diamonds, is another attraction – along with a sapphire and diamond cluster ring.
At the more affordable end of the jewellery spectrum are items like a gold charm bracelet by Trianon, a an amethyst and period ring by H. Stern and a ruby and diamond bracelet comprising 13 oval and ruby diamond clusters.
