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.
