The valuation and sale of jewellery and fine watches requires specialist skills, expertise and above all experience. We make a point of including a dedicated section in each catalogue sale for these properties.
Whilst of course bargains can be found in any auction and at any auction room, the fact remains that demand for jewellery in the Channel Islands is far higher than in many other parts of the British Isles. Indeed visitors to our auction room from off-island frequently remark on the exceptional prices that we can achieve.
Of note was the auction of a fine 18ct white gold graduated diamond necklace, with 91 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling some 22.9 carats, which sold for £32,000.
Immediately after reopening the saleroom following the Covid lockdowns, in November 2021 we achieved £26,000 for a platinum and diamond 3 stone ring, the central emerald cut diamond weighing 5.21 carats.
Fine collectible watches are also a feature of our catalogue sales and collectors around the world keep an eye on our website and bid online or by telephone. We very recently sold a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Explorer II from 1981, known as the “Orange Hand of Steve McQueen” for £7,500.
