Jewels from the property of Viscount Harberton performed particularly well and we were very pleased to see the collection realise over £25,000 reflecting the strength of items of noble provenance. Lot 30 an exceptional garnet and diamond brooch realised £1,953, premium and lot 434 a beautifully made Belle Epoque diamond panel bracelet realised £10,080 premium. We were particularly pleased to see an 18th century diamond ring generate keen bidding to finally realise £3,276 premium. A stunning early 19th century imperial topaz pendant necklace sailed up the rostrum ladder to realise £3,980 premium.

We were also pleased to see the strength of pearls remaining strong and with laboratory opinions confirming natural origin enabled clients to bid with confidence. With three of the lots making above top estimate, lot 370 had a pre-sale estimate of £800-1,200 realised £4,284 premium


Lot 375: Van Cleef & Arpels, VCA. A gem-set cat brooch
