With summer heat still blazing down, now is the time to chill out and invest in some really cool gems. This month’s Philips Jewellery auction has a wide and exciting range of desirable items, and there is definitely something for every taste and budget.
Nothing is cooler than Jade, and the offer of a sumptuous pair of jade and diamond set cluster stud earrings is too good to resist. With 18ct white gold cluster studs and a grain set surround of small fine quality brilliant cut diamonds, these fine examples are sure to attract great interest.
A remarkable tanzanite and diamond dress ring is also certain to attract a great deal of attention when it goes under the hammer on Monday. A brilliant blue stone weighing approximately 10.68ct is set in 18ct white gold with modern styling, and flanked to each side by a princess cut diamond of approximately 0.40ct, 0.80ct combined weight. Tanzanite was given its name by Jewellers Tiffany & Co after the country Tanzania, where it was discovered.
For those with an eye for a bargain, a Louis Vuitton tambour attraction pm heart wristwatch with a recommend retail price of $5,100 is on offer at a very attractive estimated sale price, and would make a perfect gift for a loved one. Stainless steel with a quartz movement, this excellent timepiece is a numbered member of the Heart Design Collection and has great visual appeal with its red metallic dial with single cut diamonds set to a heart pattern.
