De Beers


Best known for their large market share in the diamond industry, it is no surprise that De Beers jewellery continues to sell exceptionally well at auction. With some hammer prices in excess of £100,000 in the past few years, De Beers created jewellery is in high demand from both collectors and those new to the market. As one might perhaps expect, the pieces that sell the best under the hammer are large and impressive diamond single stone rings, either in D-Z or fancy colours, and with an accompanying report by the GIA or De Beers' own Institute of Diamonds. 


Other jewellery to sell well under the hammer includes earrings, eternity rings, bracelets, pendants, rivière necklaces and cufflinks. With their own expertly designed and crafted collections to include Talisman, Enchanted Lotus, Aura and Portraits of Nature, De Beers creates exceptional and highly wearable jewels that use both colourless and fancy coloured De Beers natural diamonds.  


Recently moving into the synthetic diamond sphere with their 'Lightbox' Collection, De Beers continues to maintain a strong market share of the diamond industry. As synthetic diamonds typically appeal much less to buyers at auctions, there is hope that this conversely will bolster the price of their natural diamond collections on the secondary market. Differentiation between natural and synthetic is becoming more and more crucial on the secondary market, so ensure that you take your jewellery to a specialist jewellery team who will be able to assist you fully. 


Our specialist Fine Jewellery & Watch auctions are held 4 times a year and include the whole spectrum of jewellery, from modern and designer pieces to antique jewels, coloured gemstone jewellery to fine diamond rings.
