Dear Tanya, Thank you so much for your kindness and consideration during the sale of my late son’s jewellery.
It has been a very traumatic time for me having to dispose of my son’s assets, however I have been very impressed by your professionalism and empathy provided to me over the last few months.
The reserve prices for the jewellery were very realistic and the ultimate sales exceeded my expectations. Also, I was very happy to receive the proceeds in such a quick time.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Philips Auctions to any person wishing to find a very experienced organization to auction their goods.

John Barratt, Mornington

It was a difficult decision to make to sell a much loved collection accumulated over several decades, and just as difficult, if not more so, to decide who should handle the sale.
Tanya, at Phillips was very professional, yet sensitive to my needs. She was also very thoughtful. She made a few suggestions to make the collection more attractive to buyers, to which I agreed.
The display of the items was excellent! I am very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Philips Auctions.


Hello Dennice, Thank you for your efforts.
I hope Timothy will know that I will love the items I bought from him as much if not more, than he did and they will be well looked after and displayed.
Thank you to you and your whole team for your extra efforts Dennice... It was a pleasure to buy through you and I hope to repeat the experience many times.
Can’t wait to see the items in the real. Sincere thanks and kindest thoughts


Hi Tanya, Thanks again for your help. I don't know if you remember I bought a diamond solitaire engagement ring from you guys a few months back. Thankfully Lucy said yes, and now she has a set of Pearl earrings for her birthday!

Thanks for all your help, I have to admit I have bought through a few other jewellery auction houses and their service has been far from pleasant. Dealing with Philips has been nothing but pleasant and I will be letting my friends know this.

Hi Dennice, Thank you. I spoke with Tony Philips this morning and thanked him personally. Many family friends attended the auction yesterday and I had live updates coming through all day. I was sincerely moved by the respect paid to my father and his collection by Tony and team.

It was reported to me that the room had a great atmosphere and all staff were helpful to any enquiries. Described as a great ‘hurrah’ to my dad and that he personally would have loved the auction. To you all and on behalf of my late father and my sister Bec, I thank you.

Kind Regards, Felicity Howard (daughter) John M Bale

Hi Robyn, Please pass on my thanks and congratulations to Tony. I’m very pleased with the outcome.

Kind Regards, LS

Greetings Tony, Many thanks for your skilful disposal of most of my silver objects. I thought that the prices you obtained were very satisfying no doubt due to your persuasive skill in auctioning them but also for Dennice's outstanding descriptions of all of them in the catalogues.

Thank you sincerely. P

Greetings Tony, Many thanks for your wonderful efforts yesterday with my silver Lots. You were very professional and persuasive at all times and I was very pleased with the overall result. I felt that you were able to convince the buyers that my Lots were well worth purchasing and it was very encouraging to see how you were skilfully able to convince the buyers to bid for each Lot. Thank you for looking after my interests so superbly. Much appreciated.

And I wish to thank Dennice for her skill in cataloguing the Lots in wonderful detail. I feel that her descriptions were persuasive to the buyers to pay such reasonable prices for the Lots. And to Mel for her excellent photographs. Well done everyone. You are all THE BEST!

Looking forward to the next Auction. Kind regards, Patrick

Dear Tony, Robyn & the team at Philips Auctions. Thank you for all your assistance with the auction last year and arranging for my piece of furniture from Dad's collection to be sent to me. It arrived last week and looks great in my house. I really appreciate all you did.

Regards, Dianne Collister

Hi Dennice, hope this finds you well. Firstly I just wanted to thank you and all the Phillips staff for your courtesy and friendliness - I picked up a few items yesterday that I'd won at Sunday's auction and you all couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

Best regards, F W

Hi Dennice, Thank you for all your work. The sale was a great result. It's been a pleasure having Philips handle it all so smoothly. I will certainly recommend you to friends.

Thanks kindly, B

To everyone at Philips Auctions, thank you very much for your help to us leading up to and on the day of this sale. Your help was so good and friendly, making the purchase of things from you so easy.

Your offer to pack up and post the things that we purchased was much appreciated. The parcel arrived safe and sound yesterday, everything in good order. Our heartfelt thanks to a fantastic company to deal with.

Best wishes, S & J McDonald

Dear Tony, I just wanted to express my thanks in writing for the work you did on my behalf at Sunday's Auction. I am thrilled with the result of all three furniture items - the Buffet, the Games table and the Wellington.

I was so appreciative of the generous introduction you gave each item - it made me feel they were special. Seeing each one sold did make me sad - and elated at the same time - as each piece has been enjoyed and used by me since childhood.

With kind Regards, Anne

I have sold a number of items through Philips Auction house. From the first contact they have always been very friendly and professional. Payment for sold items is always on time. I am very happy to continue to use their services and would recommend them to my friends.

Kind Regards, GJ

Hi Tanya, I just wanted to thank you and pass on my appreciation to you and your father for helping my mum out and visiting her, and for organising her items to be auctioned off by another company. My mum wasn't too clear with the details but she is very happy with the service your dad gave her. After my father's passing, you have made what was going to be one difficult task for her, a much easier one.

My deepest gratitude, Juanita Rolls

... David came in & collected the pieces we had bought, including the Hermes clic-clack bracelet. It took me a while to work out how to open it!! It's a very nice piece & I'm really pleased with it. I had a look on their website before the auction & a new one cost $860 whereas I got mine for half of that. I was really thrilled! It looks very nice on. My mum commented on it straight away.

I have to tell you that you're the only auction house I would buy jewellery from because you're the only ones who give extra detailed information & extra photos. It's a wonderful service, thanks. For almost all other auction houses you can only click on a button to request a condition report & a week later you get a 1 line reply which tells you nothing much at all. It's useless. Nobody could happily spend serious money based on so little information.

So many thanks from a very happy customer! Elizabeth

Dear Tony and Staff,

I would like to express my thanks to you all for organising the sale of my goods. It was done with kindness and consideration.

Yours sincerely, Ms P. O.A.M.
