This Sale offers a wide selection of Fine Jewellery and small Collectables to suit most tastes. Followers of World events would be aware of the steady rise of precious metals that is strongly associated with the Trump Trade Wars. In the past, in times of turmoil people hid their wealth on their person in the form of Jewellery, Gold Watches and Coins and it appears that the demand for physical transportable wealth is once again coming to the fore. Gold has always been a safe haven investment in emerging economies such as China and India as new arrivals from the countryside to the cities seek out the gold sellers to commoditise their ‘new-found’ wealth. It is worth doing the sums on our Jewellery which is mostly being offered close to its intrinsic value with little premium attached to the gemstones. It its raw form we have a number of small gold nuggets from Australia’s oldest goldfields at the hamlet Sofala/Hillend near Bathurst. One of the more interesting items in the Sale is the ‘Neptune’ Opal. Weighing in at a fraction under 30 Carats. It is a superb example of a fossilised Seashell from the Opal fields of Coober Pedy and stands ready to be set as a statement piece as either a Ring or Pendant. Once again, we are offering three outstanding Russian Orthodox Religious Icons featuring St Nicholas (Santa Claus), Saint Alexander and John the Baptist. All are superbly executed works of art in their own right. There are also a number of Miniature portraits which are always of interest to collectors. There are also two ‘Keys to the City’ given to Robert (Piggy) Muldoon when he visited Seoul and San Francisco as the Prime Minister of New Zealand. We hope you find something to pique your interest.
