Auctioneer Roseberys has announced that its first jewellery and watch auction of 2021 will take place next month.

The London auction house, which is working in an online-only format at the moment, said that Victorian jewellery will feature strongly in the sale.

Despite this, Roseberys confirmed that the auction will include both modern and antique pieces, as well as a wide selection of items by famous names.


It is set to take place on Tuesday 16 March, beginning at 11am.

Mark Bowis, head of the jewellery and watch department, commented: ‘The sale comprises of 246 lots ranging in period from antiquity to the present day.

“Traditionally this sale includes a varied selection of diamond and gem rings, a very nice group of 1940s jewellery.

“Also featured in the sale is a selection of signed jewellery from jewel houses such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Hermes, Zolotas, H.Stern and Gavello.

“Wrist watches are also represented in the sale with a selection of vintage watches including an interesting 1940s period wristwatch by Patek Philippe and a rose gold Rolex Oyster ‘Bubble back’ wristwatch.

“Furthermore, the sale also features a small collection of vintage British military wristwatches dating from the 1940s to the 1980s which includes a ‘Dirty Dozen’ Cyma wristwatch, a W10 by Smiths dated 1969 and W10 watch by CWC dated 1979.”

Two late-Victorian necklaces, both with estimates of £5,000-7,000, are highlights of the sale, pictured below.
