Our first Auction Sale of 2020, held on 22nd January, included a beautiful diamond pendant/brooch. In the distinctive Art Deco Style, set with three yellow diamonds, and fifty four different sized white diamonds, totalling 4.01 carats, overall, it was of the sort of quality that has been attributed to Paris jewellery houses such as Frederic Boucheron. Brought into one of Ibbett Mosely’s regular valuation days, at their Sevenoaks Auction Rooms, the lady client said that she wanted to pass the proceeds on to help her grand children. On sale day, estimated by the Auctioneers, at £2,500 – £3,500, it was contested by both trade and private buyers, eventually selling to a local lady who had been on their catalogue mailing list, for some years, and was her first purchase, at £4,100. Partner, and Head Auctioneer, Alan White, said “What a great start to the year this was, and it proves that small provincial salerooms can achieve similar prices to much bigger firms”.
