Token of Love

***The road from Sturminster Newton at Lydlinch will be closed on Friday 17th May****

A necklace, in its original heart shaped box, is one of the lots going under the hammer in the Charterhouse 16th & 17th May auction of silver, jewellery and watches.

“Charming is probably the best way to describe the necklace” Commented Richard Bromell. “However, just as important as being charming is the necklace is very wearable and still looks stunning today in the 21st century.”

The necklace dates to the Edwardian period. Although unmarked gold, it is probably 15ct gold set with seed pearls and peridots in the Art Nouveau taste.

At over 100 years old it has survived in remarkably good condition. This is probably due to it being cherished and put away in its beautiful heart shaped box after being worn.

Inherited some time ago, the family who live in Somerset have decided it is not something they will wear and called upon Charterhouse to give them advice for selling at auction and a valuation.

Estimated at £300-500 this Edwardian necklace will be sold as part of the Charterhouse 16th & 17th May two day auction. On the 16th silver, jewellery and watches will be sold, followed on the 17th with specialist sections of wine, port & whisky and Beswick and Royal Doulton.
