Diamonds are a girl`s best friend

Everyone knows this evergreen by Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. But not only diamonds can inspire, shining rubies, deep blue sapphires, emeralds with the most beautiful radiance and also precious South Sea pearls, opals from the most important mines in Australia. But it is not only about the size of a stone, it is about so much more. Jewellery and watches are not just a commodity for us, there is a beautiful story behind every piece. Rings that have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations. Pieces of jewellery as a sign of attachment and love and not least as an expression of one’s own personality, impressive watchmaking art that inspires the collector.
We would be pleased to accompany you competently and discreetly in the liquidation of your collection, an estate, your inheritance or also in the sale of individual pieces that are to change hands. For all consignments for the auction, a cash down payment on the expected proceeds is also possible.
Historical jewellery from the Biedermeier, Historicism and Art Nouveau periods, Art Deco treasures and modern design pieces – exquisite jewellery from the houses of Chopard, Bulgari and Cartier or Hemmerle, Boucheron, Tiffany and Van Cleef & Arpels inspire our customers and us anew in every auction.

Wonderful works accompany us through the years as contemporary witnesses of jewellery history
