When it comes to fine jewelry, one of the best places to find gems in the rough is at an auction. Not only is there a wide selection to choose from, but many of the items are valuable and can do well when purchased for resale.
Recently, Skinner announced that it would be holding an auction on Sept. 12 and 13 in its Marlborough Gallery for those interested in everything from old silver to antique furniture, according to LiveAuctioneers.com. Of the pieces of interest are a 14-karat gold moonstone and red gemstone necklace and a 14-karat gold and enamel portrait locket from the Victorian era.
Numerous textiles, decorative items and vintage clothing are also expected to draw bidders to the auction. Skinner is renowned for its events and the valuable assets they auction off to those looking for that oh-so-special antique or piece of jewelry.
If you're interested in finding antique engagement rings, bracelets or earrings from a certain decade, auctions are an ideal place to check. Don't rule out estate sales, either – both of these events are perfect for those who are interested in finding rare items that hold an ample amount of value.
