Shiny Silver and Sparkly Diamonds

The Charterhouse two day auction in August includes a large collection of silver and a large collection of diamond jewellery including a whopping solitaire ring.

“The silver was collected over a number of years by the owner’s father.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Sadly he has been ill and recently moved into a home. Whilst the client mentioned it was a large collection of silver, I did not expect to see such a huge variety of items and the collection is expected to sell for five figures.”

In the collection,

 

 

which comes from a Somerset farmhouse, there are silver tea caddies, cutlery, baskets, vases and a huge variety of silver cream jugs from the 18th century onwards in all shapes, sizes and forms with estimates from £50 up to many £100’s.

However, if diamonds are more your thing, then a large diamond solitaire ring from a client in Rutland could be yours.

“When we look at diamonds it is all about the four C’s – Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat and this ring certainly ticks all four boxes.” Commented Naomi Grabham. “Estimated at £6,000-10,000 the diamond ring is of good colour and clarity with no large inclusions, a brilliant cut measures and measures just over the magic number 3 carat in weight.”

Charterhouse are now accepting further entries for this silver, jewellery and watch auction on Thursday 23rd August followed on Friday 24th with antiques and interiors with a selection of wine, port & whisky. They are also accepting entries for their sale of classic & vintage motorcycles on 31st August at Netley Marsh and their 12th September auction of classic & vintage cars.
