Sotheby’s London auctioned the Jewellery Collection of the Late Michael Wellby. The sale’s top lot was an important late 18th Century diamond devant de corsage, which keen bidding drove to £385,250 – more than six times the low estimate (£60,000-80,000). Composed of a series of swags, with ribbon and floral motifs, suspending three detachable tassels, set with rose diamonds, measuring approximately 240 x 130mm, (photo:Sotheby's/alaintruong.com).
