Following a fast paced 2019, here we are, starting another new year and in fact, a new decade. 2019 was a busy and successful year, with a strong team and some amazing jewels passing through our hands. The start of this year sees a number of wonderful submissions already for our Fine Jewels auction. Illustrated here are a selection of highlights, at differing price points, that we look forward to presenting.

Tiffany & Co jewellery is forever popular, and we are delighted to offer a large solitaire diamond ring, of 3.24cts by the much loved luxury jewellery house. The auction also features a glamorous gold and diamond cocktail bracelet, and in the antique section, a delicate starburst brooch detailed with diamonds and seed pearls (illustrated on the inside front cover of this magazine) and a beautiful deep orange citrine riviere necklace, originally retailed by renowned Sydney jeweller, Anne Schofield.

We are fortunate to see so many interesting gems at Leonard Joel, and our forthcoming March auction is no exception. A very special highlight however, is this magnificent star sapphire jewellery suite; the pendant alone being set with a sapphire of 44.8cts.

We look forward to welcoming you to the viewing of Fine Jewels, prior to the auction which will take place on Monday 16 March at 6.30pm.
