There is a great selection of diamond and other jewellery in the Charterhouse auction on Friday 7th August.
Jewellery, and diamonds in particular, are a perennial favourite at auction whatever the time of year.” Commented Richard Bromell. “In addition, some buyers are now looking at alternative places to put their money into rather than stocks and shares and many like the appeal of diamond jewellery as an alternative.”
One lot which shines more brightly than the others is a huge diamond solitaire ring. The diamond measures 1 cm in diameter, is the size of the nail on your small finger, is estimated at £15,000-20,000 and comes from the estate of a deceased clergyman.
