A rare opportunity for the jewelry company Taylor & Hart, a fabulous bespoke company based in London, has recently come to fruition and both Taylor & Hart and myself are very excited about it! Taylor & Hart specializes in bespoke engagement rings and does an amazing job creating dream rings for people to treasure for years!
After over 30 years of collecting as a hobby, a prolific Portuguese collector has amassed a collection of a unique variety of exquisite jewels, totaling over 3,000 luxurious pieces! These pieces are worth over £11 million and range in styles and variety. This unrivalled and diverse collection has come to be known as The Martins Collection. It features necklaces, earrings, and crosses that are cast in gold, diamonds, pearls, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. The collector focused mostly on the glamour and sparkle when choosing each piece, as you can tell from the small selection featured in the above photos. Taylor & Hart is offering a select few of these pieces within The Martins Collection for sale, on request. For more information, check out their website.
