489 - Diamonds are Forever: Silver, Jewelry & Watches

27 May 2017

We are proud to present you the catalog of our first specialized auction in this field, consisting of 309 privately owned lots. Since the range not only differs greatly in style, technique and time, but also contains various collections without a minimum price, this auction offers something for everyone.

The auction starts with a collection of silver objects, of which lot 4 immediately catches the eye. This silver sacrament cup is dated Sneek 1721 and contains detailed engravings of the three Divine Virtues faith, hope and love. Valuation € 4,000 – 5,000.
Lot 6 concerns a very refined colonial pleated dish, dating from the early 18th century. As the majority of silver objects were melted down into currency due to the economic downturn of around 1800, this hitherto unknown object in the literature is a rare find. This is offered to you with the very attractive target price of € 10,000 – 15,000.
Similar in rarity is lot 8, consisting of eight Louis XV style candlesticks. Despite dated later, the composition of this number of similar pieces remains highly sought after. Valuation € 5,000 – 8,000.

Under the jewelery section you will find various Art Deco designs, which fit particularly well with the current fashion image. The sleek, yet very elegant bracelet with diamonds is a good example of this. This platinum carrier is set with more than 4 carats of diamonds and is offered as lot 30 with a valuation of € 6,000 – 8,000.
In the same style you will find lot 36, a white gold brooch with diamonds, which is a true looker due to its exceptional shape and quality. Valuation € 2,500 – 3,500.
We advise lovers of brilliance to view lot 42. This platinum bracelet with over 11 carats of high-quality diamonds shows the craftsmanship of the goldsmith. This impressive piece has a valuation of just €10,000 – 15,000.

Lot 51 is the most striking among the very extensive range of rings for women and men. This two-tone solitaire ring bears more than 5 carats of diamond and comes from an important private collection. That the owners bought on the basis of quality in the middle of the last century is evidenced by this piece, which is presented to you with the tempting valuation of € 22,000 – 25,000.

The cover lot 145 is one of the many necklaces included in this catalog. This white gold necklace is decorated with diamonds, tanzanites and rubelites of different sizes and shapes, making the hue form a beautiful composition. Like various other lots on offer, this necklace was purchased from the leading designer/jeweler Chris Sommer. Valuation € 2,200 – 2,800.

We refer the watch collector to lot 189, as well as the subsequent 25 lots. The steel is highly sought after Cartier chronograph from the series pasha. With the attached original steel strap and box, we offer you this collector's item with a valuation of € 2,000 – 3,000.

Another collection area concerns the brooches with glass painting on the back, depicting animals or flowers. Due to the refined technique, these early examples from the 19th century are highly sought after among collectors. The valuations for lot 226 – 239 are € 500 – 700 each.

Of course, the above is just a selection from the entire range. We therefore invite you to the online catalog here .
