Diamonds dazzle at Farleigh
June 16th, 2021
Our most recent sale at Farleigh Court Golf Club on 9 June saw an exceptional result for a stunning piece of jewellery. In what was a highly successful section of the sale, with all jewellery fetching strong results across the board, it was lot 270, a 25 carat diamond necklace made up of 46 graduated brilliant-cut stones that shone brightest. The pre-sale interest and the competitive bidding, which eventually saw the necklace sell for £22,000 hammer, shows that in a market where coloured gems are often more sought after the power of carefully selected white stones coupled with quality craftsmanship can’t be overestimated.
If you have some diamonds hidden away – or any piece of jewellery for that matter – then it looks like the jewellery market is particularly favourable right now. We are continuing to accept consignments for our forthcoming sale which takes place at the end of July. To get in touch you can email the office at email@example.com or speak to us on the phone on 0208 468 1010.
