Jewellery, Silver, Coins and Watches

At Special Auction Services we now hold six Jewellery auctions per year. Each sale offers an attractive and extensive range of antique, modern and costume jewellery to suit all buyers.

Within our jewellery sales, we have sections dedicated to 

  • Watches

  • Objets d'art

Experience and knowledge allows us to give you expert and comprehensive advice when selling. Prior to the auction a professional, colour printed catalogue is produced and publicised worldwide to ensure that your items reach the excellent prices they deserve.

Our consultants are available and eager to offer friendly and honest advice to any buyers with questions regarding items for sale, prior, during or post auction.
