Fellows Auctioneers has raised nearly £30,000 for a number of charities with its latest Silver & Costume Jewellery sale.
The auction ended on 4 December and consisted of 876 lots, many of which were sold for charities like the Alzheimer’s Society and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
This followed a series of three auctions back in September, across which Fellows raised nearly £30,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Now, the auctioneer has raised £23,248 for the Alzheimer’s Society in one single auction, along with a further £4,965 for other charities.
In this most recent sale, a late Victorian opal and diamond cluster ring and a 9ct gold Victorian split pearl ring sold for a hammer price of £380, with proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Society, while three diamond rings sold for £280.
The costume jewellery timed auctions at Fellows often generate much-needed funds for various charities such as Heart Research UK and St Michael’s Hospice.
Items featured on the Fellows website which are being sold on behalf of charity can be seen marked by a charity logo.
Annaliese Foster, silver and costume jewellery manager at Fellows, said: “We have been able to raise so much money for different charities throughout 2020 which makes me incredibly proud.
“In a year that has been tough for everyone, it has been a thrill to see so many items of jewellery, and silver sell and raise money for such great causes. I can’t wait to continue helping to raise funds for these charities in 2021.”
