A Diamond Lot

A large diamond solitaire ring is one of the star lots in the Charterhouse two day 6th & 7th August auction.

“It certainly is quite a whopper of a ring, being about the size of a finger nail.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Whilst you will not be able to see this diamond from the moon, it is certainly large enough to see from across a room and will put a smile on the face of whoever is lucky enough to be wearing it.”

The ring comes to the Charterhouse two day auction of jewellery, watches, silver and antiques from a gentleman who passed away at the beginning of 2020. Although it is intriguing to know how he came to own the ring, we will sadly never know.

The brilliant cut diamond measures approximately 4ct and is of good clarity with no visible inclusions. Set in unmarked white metal, which is probably platinum, this ring is dateless in style and estimated to sell for £15,000-20,000 at the Charterhouse auction.

Whether it will be bought as an engagement ring, given as a present to celebrate a special occasion or just because it is beautiful only time will tell.

Charterhouse are now accepting entries for this auction of silver, jewellery and watches with a selection of wine, port and whisky on 6th & 7th August and their auctions of classic and vintage cars on the 29th July followed by classic and vintage motorcycles on 27th August.
