FOR the first time in years Aucor will be holding a dedicated jewellery auction in Johannesburg.
"It's been a number of years since we have held a jewellery auction as we've been running these through our Durban branch, but a large intake of estate jewellery together with distressed matters has necessitated that we reinvigorate the Gauteng market for jewellery," says Aucor MD Shannon Winterstein.
"In current economic conditions we recognise that uptake may not be what it was a few years ago," he says. "There will be good opportunities to buyers to acquire some beautiful pieces at reasonable prices."
Between 200 to 250 lots of jewellery include diamonds, tennis bracelets and pendants, tanzanites and other gems, engagement rings and eternity bands, and a consignment of luxury watches, including Rolex, Cartier and Breitling.
The auction is at the Hilton Hotel, Sandton, at 11am on Sunday. Call 0861-28-28-46 or log onto www.aucor.com for a detailed listing.
