Auctioneer’s Comment

Diamonds are a Man’s Best Friend

Diamonds are a Man’s Best Friend

With Christmas just around the corner there is a great selection of diamond and other jewellery in the Charterhouse two day auction on the 5th & 6th November.

“Diamonds are a man’s best friend when it comes to giving presents, at Christmas or in fact at any time of the year!” Commented Richard Bromell. “Over the decades I have sold many a diamond to a client as a present and at this time of year there is plenty interest in buyers bidding for lots as presents for a loved one.”

Going under the hammer in the Charterhouse jewellery auction is a large diamond solitaire ring. Measuring in at a huge 5.4 ct, the round brilliant cut diamond is set in 18ct gold. Given to the owner by an admirer several years ago, and having been valued for insurance at a staggering £100,000, this whopping diamond ring is estimated at £25,000-30,000.
