Fellows & Sons' jewellery sale proves diamonds are a collector's best friend

Jewellery collectors are set to be spoilt next month with Fellows & Sons hosting a sale of over 700 fine investment grade pieces.

The Platinum diamond ring

The event will begin at 10am on September 2, 2010 at the Birmingham based auction house with three very special pieces on offer that could be worth investing in.

The first is an 18 carat white gold single stone diamond ring. The piece features a round brilliant cut diamond four claw set and is bordered by pave round diamonds all featuring on a twist design ring mount.

The fine jewellery piece carries a pre-auction estimated price of £10,000 - 15,000 ($15,600 - 23,400).

Alternatively, the sale offers collectors the chance to invest in a single stone platinum diamond ring. 

The ring features an eight claw setting with the diamond drawing yellow in colour. In good condition and offering effective symmetry, the piece carries a target price of £12,000 to 15,000 ($18,000 - 23,000).

The diamond brooch

Yet for jewellery lovers, the chance to add a 1955 Boucheron diamond brooch to their collection may prove the biggest draw.

Presented in the form of two stylised leaves, the brooch features an inner central curve of baguette cut diamonds as well as an outer claw set round of further brilliant diamonds.

The border of the piece is set with three principal old European diamonds as well as a surrounding scattering of pear and baguette cut diamonds.

Add to this a tapered hoop which is hinged to allow the sections to be removed to form double clips and you have an exquisitely made piece of jewellery that would be the pride of any collection.

With all clasps and clips in good condition and the Boucheron logo clear to see, the piece carries an estimated price of £12,000 - 18,000 ($18,000 - 28,000).

So whatever your taste when it comes to jewellery, next month's sale is certain to have a few pieces worth investing in.
