Jewellery & Watches

From the outset, jewellery and watches have always sold particularly well at our auctions.

From our first successful auction in 2012, there have been some impressive jewels, timepieces and collections sold under the hammer. Those early auctions brought successes such as an important yellow sapphire selling for a staggering £9,500 (plus premium) and an 18ct gold open face pocket watch by Vulliamy selling for £2,400 (plus premium).

In 2015 Catherine invited jewellery expert Barbara Dixon to join the team as Head of Jewellery to build on their initial successes.  Since then the jewellery department has expanded and continues to grow from strength to strength.

Expertise, experience and passion are what Barbara brings to the team, and since her time with us, some notable private collections have been uncovered and significant items sold.  These include a ladies Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust selling for £7,200 (plus premium) in December 2016, and a stunning 3.10 ct diamond ring selling for £7,200 (plus premium) in September 2017.

However, it is not always a case of ‘expensive’ jewels, diamonds and pearls fetching the most money.  In September 2016 we sold a private collection of 1950’s Christian Dior costume jewellery by Mitchel Mayer for £10,000 (plus premium).

Many years of accumulated knowledge ensures the best possible results for our clients whether selling wristwatches or pocket watches, dazzling diamonds, antique jewels or collectible costume designer jewellery. We offer free valuations and are always on hand to advise our clients on any aspects of selling or buying.

We pride ourselves on a service that is both professional and personal.
