Auction Results: November 2023
An art deco diamond set platinum bracelet stole the show at Michael Bowman's final auction of the year at Chudleigh on November 25th. The largest rectangular cut stone to centre weighed a generous one carat alone! The diamonds were of good white colour and clarity and estimated to add up to a total weight of 20 carats. A telephone bidder from Surrey was willing to pay an above estimate £20,500 for his prize. It will be a Christmas present for his lucky wife!
Elsewhere in the auction, a gent's bi-metal Rolex Datejust was bought by a local collector for £2,900, as was a 4.4 carat light yellow sapphire & diamond ring which sold for £2,500. An 18ct gold half hunter pocket watch went to a keen internet bidder for £1,200.
Michael Bowman is now accepting suitable entries for the New Year sale at Chudleigh to be held on January 27th. Free appraisals are given by appointment at either Chudleigh or Kingsteignton. Enquiries: 01626 324071 www.michaeljbowman.co.uk
