Tennants Auctioneers’ Jewellery, Watches and Silver Sale saw buyer’s flocking to the North Yorkshire Salerooms, and confident bidding led to an impressive total hammer price for the 404-lot sale of £875,920, and a strong selling rate of 89%.

The Jewellery section of the sale got off to a flying start with a beautiful pair of circa 1900 Diamond Hair Slides or Brooches, naturalistically modelled as ivy leaves, which sold for £12,000 (plus buyer’s premium). Indeed, all the antique jewellery in the sale was much sought after, with lots selling well above estimate such as an Archaeological Revival Style Scarab Bangle that sold for £18,000, and a Gold and Ruby Stickpin by Fabergé that sold for £3,400. Notable results were seen too for a Diamond and Ruby Evening Purse made circa 1920 by Hartog of Paris (sold for £8,000), a Mid-19th Century Diamond Brooch (£4,500), and a French Belle Epoque Diamond and Pearl Miniature Brooch/Pendant (sold for £3,500).

Elsewhere in the sale an interesting selection of opals all sold well, led by a Black Boulder Opal Ring that sold for £4,800. Rubies were in demand too, with highlights that included a Pair of Ruby and Diamond Earrings with Burmese rubies that sold for £6,000, and two Ruby and Diamond Cluster Rings that sold for £4,200 and £6,200.

Strong prices were also seen for a collection of contemporary jewellery, with the highlight being a Fire Opal Cross Pendant which sold for £6,500.
