Halloween is on the horizon, and we have several spooky jewels to tempt you
The Dawsons October sale will feature over 370 lots of fine jewellery, silver, watches, and much more!
Some of our favourite lots include a diamond daisy cluster ring, passed down through the family and set with lovely old-cut diamonds, estimate £600-800.
For a more modern jewellery look, a pair of diamond earrings set with rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. The stones are calibre-set, meaning that the gemstones are cut to fit against each other in the mount; this style was very popular during the Art Deco period, and it is unusual to find modern pieces made this well, so this is a lot to take a second look at.
We are aware that Halloween is coming up this month, so in the spirit of Samhain we have several spooky jewels to tempt you…! Lot 29 is a fabulous spider pendant, studded with diamonds and rubies; we also have three enamel skull pendants with blood-red ruby and green stone eyes, and an antique snake ring set with old-cut diamonds.
Gold is always a popular investment choice, and for the coin collectors out there we have a lovely single owner collection of sovereigns and Kruggerands.
In the silver department this month, we are delighted to have consigned an unusual collection of cow creamers from a London client, the perfect addition to your tablescape this winter! We have five Georgian cow creamers, four made by John Schuppe, a Dutch silversmith who worked in London; his work has bene included in the Victoria & Albert museum, and he is highly collectable.
For watch collectors, is this beautiful Omega Constellation Co-Axial stainless steel wristwatch, complete with box and paperwork.
