Specialist Jewellery Auctions

Stroud Auctions are delighted to have a full-time jewellery specialist in their head of department Alexandra Bowkett (DGA, FGA), who has grown the jewellery department into one of the largest and best in the UK. Our quarterly specialist jewellery sales now comprise around 1000 lots including costume jewellery, amber antique, contemporary and of course diamond items. Alexandra is always on hand to offer friendly, honest advice to buyers and sellers alike and of course to spot the ‘gems’ missed by other valuers. A notable example of this is the purple sapphire brooch sold for over £16,000 after being dismissed by others as an amethyst worth less than £100.

The department uses its expertise and knowledge of current market values to advise you on all aspects of buying and selling jewellery at auction, from individual modern statement pieces to family heirlooms, private collections and costume jewellery.

Jewellery can be subtle and understated, it can be bold, even outrageous, but it is always very individualistic and personal to the wearer. Whether these items reflect status, or love, or grief, or other sentiment and emotion, we all have our own cherished pieces.

Throughout our history, the adorning of the body with items and materials fashioned into wearable jewellery has brought with it a plethora of different styles, techniques, and craftsmanship. In today's world the commercial demand for items of antique jewellery continues to strengthen.
