In Sworders' auction of Fine Jewelry and Watches on Tuesday 27 July, they offer an impressive single owner private collection of high-end jewelry by Royal Warrant holders, Hamilton & Inches, 87 George Street, Edinburgh.

Hamilton & Inches, established in 1866, has been hand-crafting and carefully sourcing corporate giftware for centuries. The five-story George Street store reopened in April of this year after an extensive refurbishment to its showrooms and workshops, making it the ultimate "destination" for watch and jewelry enthusiasts to visit for a guaranteed marked occasion.

Sworders upcoming auction will include selections from Hamilton & Inches

With master craftsmen and women in workshops above the showroom, they are one of the only jewelers to be able to offer purchasers the opportunity to meet the craftsperson behind their treasured acquisition. These generations of expert designers and makers have helped them maintain their Royal Warrant for Silversmithing and Clock making for over 120 years.

Lot 382, A pair of 18ct gold rutilated golden quartz, citrine and diamond earrings, by Hamilton & Inches

Amongst the lots being offered are several pieces from the jeweler’s ‘Flora’ range, famously worn by the Duchess of Cambridge during their Scotland tour in May of this year. Designs consist of 18ct gold rutilated golden quartz, citrines and diamonds, and 18ct white gold labradorites, aquamarines and diamond.

The collection will be available to view by appointment at Sworders' London Gallery from Monday 12 – Saturday 17 July, and then from Thursday 22 to Monday 26 July at the Stansted Mountfitchet Auction Rooms.
