    This beautiful gold bracelet (Lot 131) combines curb and braided linking for a chunky, three dimensional look and feel. This bracelet has a lot of movement to it, which I like, as it curves to your wrist.

    Lot 162
    Bracelet. Estimate: £2,000–£2,600.

    Red diamonds are so rare that I have only seen three or four in my whole career as a jewellery blogger. So when I saw this lot, I had to do a double take. Surrounding white and pink diamonds help it to stand out.

    Lot 210
    Fancy Red Diamond, Pink Diamond And Diamond Ring.
    Estimate: £50,000–£70,000

    There’s something warm and vintage about these fabulous earrings. The symmetry of the piece wears like a hoop design, but the angular elements add another dimension, highlighted with a rectangular step-cut peridot and brilliant-cut diamonds. 

    Lot 167
    Pair of peridot and diamond earrings, Scavia. Estimate: £900–1,800.

    I love the combination of the jewellery for this auction.  I like that a girl who loves contemporary jewellery can find some beautiful pieces that are accessible.  I love that there is also some investment jewellery – antique pieces, and classical fine jewellery, so if you’re looking for your ruby or a diamond ring, maybe an engagement ring or second ring, there are really great options.

    Lot 131
    Bracelet, Tiffany&Co. 1950s. Estimate: £2,000–£3,000.

    This is a really fun piece, I really enjoy wearing jewellery that is as playful as it is stylish. The snake design is a classic, but the gems used here really bring it to life. It's set with tsavorite garnets and circular-cut diamonds, and the eyes are highlighted with circular-cut amethysts.

    Lot 182
    Tsavorite garnet, diamond and amethyst ring. Estimate: £1,000–1,500.

    A gorgeous design of not one but two flowers, each with their own individual characteristics and beauty. One is collet-set with a circular-cut morganite, framed by brilliant-cut diamonds, surrounded by circular-cut tsavorite garnet and circular-cut ruby petals. The other flower is beautifully different, more modest and surrounded in innocence, totally unaware of its own beauty as it tucks under the petals of its more extravagant partner.

    Lot 183
    Morganite, tsavorite garnet, ruby and diamond ring. Estimate: £1,000–£1,500.

    I love that there are a few items and a few jewels which are worth investing in and they’re investment jewellery – I’m talking about antique pieces – and I also love how you have some classical fine jewellery, so if you’re looking for your ruby or you’re looking for a diamond ring, maybe an engagement ring or second ring, there are also good options.

    Lot 103
    Ruby and diamond ring, Chantecler. Estimate: £4,500–£7,500.

    Lot 115
    Emerald and diamond ring. Estimate: £1,500–£2,400.

    I'm really struck by how delicate this brooch is, and how feminine. It combines heart and bow designs, and really shows off its circular and calibré-cut rubies and circular-cut and rose diamonds. The suspended pear-shaped diamond drop finishes it off perfectly!

    Lot 101
    Ruby and diamond brooch, early 20th century. Estimate: £1,500–£2,000.

    Such a wonderfully modern look to this design and I love the the pendant design and the way the whole piece moves. Set with circular- single-cut and baguette diamonds, there’s a certain bridal allure and evening glam to these earrings.

    Lot 139
    Pair of diamond earrings. Estimate: £1,500–£2,400.

    Who can resist tourmalines, especially when they’re signed by Tiffany & Co (Lot 121)? Set with green and pink cabochon tourmalines, spaced by brilliant-cut diamonds (size N), this is a signature design and will be scooped up quickly.

    Lot 121
    Tourmaline and diamond ring, Tiffany&Co. Estimate: £750-£900.

    I recently published a book, GEMOLOGUE: Street Jewellery Styles & Styling Tips , based on my archives of jewellery as shot in New York, Milan, Moscow, Paris and London of course, and also tribal jewellery from the jungles of Brazil. I've been doing this for over nine years, so I collaborated with hundreds of brands and thousands of jewellery designers.

    I have always been challenged and surprised by my followers and I see my work as a two way conversation, I’m always discovering and love to pass on what I learn to my community.

    Lot 135
    Pair of mother-of-pearl and turquoise earrings, 'Lucky Alhambra', Van Cleef & Arpels. Estimate: £5,000–£7,000.

    Butterfly and clover motifs are a signature of VCA. A must-have for every jewellery lover. There's an innocence to these earrings which I love, and the mother of pearl and turquoise go beautifully together.

    Lot 135
    Pair of mother-of-pearl and turquoise earrings, 'Lucky Alhambra', Van Cleef & Arpels. Estimate: £5,000–£7,000.
