Charles de Temple Ring, 'All the Time in the World', 1960s. Estimate: £15,000–20,000

This distinctive ring was one of only two designed by the jeweller Charles de Temple for the 1969 James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. The first ring which sold at Sotheby's in 2019 garnered international press attention and ended up hammering down for a spectacular £52,500 against a pre-sale estimate of £6,000-£8,000. The ring is central to the film's narrative, as it serves as the wedding ring given by Bond (George Lazenby) to the Contessa Teresa "Tracy" di Vicenzo (Diana Rigg) on the occasion of their wedding, 007's only marriage. The romantic message 'All the Time in the World' spelled out by the ring's design is a recurring theme throughout the film, and also the title of the film's theme song, performed by Louis Armstrong.
