Two beautiful Victorian pieces are a couple of the highlights of an antique and modern jewellery auction happening in Birmingham, UK, on Thursday 18th October 2007.

It’s the latest sale from 131 year old auctioneer Fellows & Sons.

There are 970 lots in the sale which starts at 10.30am.

Two of the highlights are lots 24 and 265, both Victorian antique jewellery pieces.


The first is a late Victorian gold and silver mounted ornate diamond pendant.

It has a guide price of £1,500 to £2,000.

Fellows’ jewellery experts say it is a circular design with an old European cut diamond set in a central claw.

The brooch is in good condition with only minor scratches to the gold and some wear and tear.

It will need a little attention, which is understandable for an item of this age.

The other Victorian highlight is a diamond and cultured pearl sunray design brooch, with a guide price of £780 to £1,000.

This has a central round cultured pearl bordered by eleven cut diamonds, leading to fifteen diamond set rays.

The total diamond weight is estimated to be 3 carats.

There are another 56 Victorian items in the sale, plus hundreds of other pieces of antique and modern jewellery.

Fellows’ managing partner Stephen Whittaker is excited.

He said: "It’s a perk of the job to be able to handle beautiful jewellery, and I’m particularly looking forward to selling these two pieces."

"They are lovely examples of Victorian jewellery and should cause a lot of excitement in the auction room."
