Victorian Sapphire 14.4 Carat Diamond Collar Necklace


A spectacular ornate collar necklace - in its original fitted presentation box - by the esteemed Bell Brothers of Doncaster. It's modelled in 15k gold with silver settings, and is home to over 14 carats of old and rose cut diamonds, as well as three beautiful natural sapphires. The piece dates to c.1870, and has been made to the highest standards of quality. Bell Brothers of Doncaster was founded in 1781 by the well respected watchmaker Joseph Bell, who worked for some time under the famous Thomas Mudge. The company stayed in the Bell family, and branched out into jewellery making in the early 19th Century - they were soon regarded as one of the leading English jewellers. In the 1920s the brand was bought out by HL Brown, a jeweller established in 1861, who still have a shop at the premises mentioned on this necklace box - 16-18 St. Sepulchre Gate, Doncaster.
