Unlike clothing, which can change drastically over time, jewellery is timeless, with a lasting power that allows it to be passed on from generation to generation. Therefore, when acquiring your own pieces, it’s best to choose those that not only look great, but will have a lasting (and hopefully increasing) value. In other words, make sure your sparkly accessories are smart investments.
If you’re in the market for some dazzling jewellery pieces, here’s your chance: International auction house Phillips will host its upcoming auction of Jewels and Jadeite at the Mandarin Oriental on 29 May at 2:30pm, bringing to Hong Kong a curated selection of over 140 exceptional jewels. These pieces all feature impeccable design and the highest level of craftsmanship, not to mention the heritage they possess from across different eras. As Terry Chu, Head of Jewellery at Phillips Asia puts it, “Our sale recognises jewellery as standalone objects of art.”
The word ‘auction’ might sound intimidating, especially when it comes to price points, but you may be surprised to find that, in reality, not everything for sale comes with an unimaginable estimate. We’ve asked the jewellery specialists at Phillips to pick 10 collectible jewellery pieces that you can keep for a lifetime, all shown below. You can also head to the public viewing section from 25–28 May (10am–6pm) to take a closer look at highlighted pieces from the sale, and to request one-to-one advice from these experts.
