There was a lovely buzz around the Dublin viewings last week and we thought we’d give you the low-down on the most popular lots and Gormley’s top picks. Book an appointment to view these lots and more during the Belfast viewings this weekend, or head straight to Gormley’s Auction for online bidding!
Gormley’s top picks
Wear it like Holly Golightly on a little black dress – or rock it on a crisp white shirt, with a pair of jeans and sexy slingbacks like our model here. These rather spectacular diamond cocktail earrings (lot 58) are a superb combination with the fine diamond line bracelet (lot 32), and a firm favourite of Gormley’s Auction.
Gormley’s second pick is the Edwardian natural pearl and diamond necklace (lot 38) – an absolutely exquisite period piece in excellent condition – a perfect collectors piece that we imagine will grace a stunning bride and many more candle-lit soirees.
Last but not least the elaborate emerald and diamond ring by Pierre Sterle (Lot 74). With a whopping 12 carats of deep green emerald enveloped in yellow gold foliage and accented with diamonds – this is an inspired example of the innovative designs that earned Pierre Sterle the nickname of “couturier of jewellery”.
Here’s a selection of our customer’s favourite picks from the Dublin viewings:
Lot 56 – Sapphire and diamond cluster ring. This is a gorgeous example of a classic design that has endured since Georgian times. More recently the popularity of this ring style received a push as royal fashion icons Princess Diana and now Princess Kate, received similar ring for their engagements. It was also one of the most popular lots from last week’s viewing. We can’t wait to see makes the winning bid!
Lot 78 – 18k white gold cat’s eye chrysoberyl diamond cluster ring.
This delightful double halo ring with the curious cat’s eye chrysoberyl at its centre was another popular ring with viewers this weekend. The exuberant arrangement of the sparkly diamond halo is beautifully balanced by the phenomenal cat’s eye. The very wearable proportions and elegance of this ring is not lost on someone looking for an unusual engagement ring.
Lot 48 – 18k gold sapphire diamond Bulgari necklace
Bulgari hit it on the nose when they picked this stunning cornflower blue sapphire for the centrepiece of this neckpiece. A classic example of bold Italian jewellery design from the 80’s, this substantial gold necklace is the epitome of luxury. Made to be worn, this is a design that you can get away with wearing any day and a popular choice with our viewers this week.
