Jewellery Auctions

Jewellery in any form be it necklace, bracelet, rings or earrings has always been a form of personal adornment. Since a long time women have worn jewellery to enhance their appearance and in many cultures the kind of jewellery worn represents the person’s social status. The rarer the jewel and gems, the more valuable they are.


In the recent years there has been a tremendous increase in demand for rare and fine unique gems and jewels whose provenance can be traced back to their creation and which retells the history of the family which has held it for generations and the social standing of the person in the society who owned the piece can add tremendous value and desirability to the associated gems and jewels. In the current economic climate, the demand for these unique hard to find goods have soared sky high as they are considered a safer haven than cash and  the potential audience for these treasures is spread all around the globe.
