With Valentine’s Day coming up, Fellows’ Antique & Modern Jewellery Sale falls two days before the big day and it meets every need for those men searching for gifts for their significant other! Whether you call yourself a boyfriend, fiancé or husband, Fellows Antique & Modern Jewellery Sale has you covered! I’ve put together some great gifts ideas for each category–leaving the fiancé category for those looking to propose on this day. Yes, you can find some amazing engagement rings at auction–in fact, it is my favorite place to look for engagement rings! Read more about that here.
The auction takes place on February 12th, 2015 and features some great jewelry from all time periods. There are even more pieces not featured that are incredible–hint, hint–there’s a Victorian ring with the words “Good Luck” on the shank with a horseshoe in the middle! So cool! Here are my favorites for those shopping that are a boyfriend, fiancé or husband:
From the Boyfriend:
Lot 28: Lockets make great gifts because of their sentimentality and this cute pearl bow locket is a winner. If you open it, you will reveal a hand-painted portrait from a bygone era…although it used to once belong to someone and had its own story, you can continue its legacy and create a new story!
Lot 572: This opal, diamond, pearl and ruby brooch has such a cool shape–it would look amazing pinned to a jacket or scarf, even hold together a cardigan. I can also imagine it converted into a fun pendant for a necklace.
Lot 177: Opals will most definitely cause the heart to skip a few beats and make a memorable Valentine’s Day gift! This particular opal has gorgeous play-of-color and a line of diamonds leads to it, hanging beautifully from a chain.
Lot 114: Two pretty pendants, each dainty and reminiscent of Valentine’s Day! Both have jump rings that can easily accomodate a chain…great for a charm bracelet too!
From the Fiancé:
Lot 137: If carat size is high up on the wish list of necessary attributes of an engagement ring, this is it! The center stone is 3.12 carats and all focus is on it…with minimal side stones and classic basket setting. Traditional and beautiful are the best words to describe this one.
Lot 190: Tiny calibre cut sapphires are continually becoming more and more popular in engagement rings, with this one being even more unique with the pearls as well! The profile sits low on the finger and the engraving along the sides makes it extra special.
Lot 514: Want a yellow gold solitaire with some personality?! This is a great engagement ring choice for you! The geometric style adds some depth to what would be a simple solitaire.
Lot 576: A very unique ring for the couple wanting an unconventional style, this diamond navette cluster ring features 1.45 carats of Old Mine cut diamonds with a few newer replacements. The style and age of the ring make it unique, and heads will be turning for this one!
From the Husband:
Lot 174: The perfect minimal diamond dangle earrings for every day wear! These earrings resemble delicate ribbons, and hold over three carats total!
Lot 412: Another great gift for your wife would be an anniversary band to stack along with other bands. This seems to be a popular trend or you can even start your own tradition by giving a special band each year!
Lot 509: Get her a right-hand ring she’s been dreaming about, with this Art Deco diamond ring! The shape and size are just right, and all those Old European cut diamonds are glorious. Perfect for a middle or ring finger on the right hand.
Lot 539: If your wife collects antique jewelry and has a discerning eye, this necklace and earring suite is amazing! The carbuncle garnet has been a favorite of mine lately and this trio cluster necklace is extremely cool. The earrings have a good length to them and match the diamond flies on the necklace.
