Curated: Hidden gems under the hammer
Enjoy the thrill of the chase at the next auction at O’Reilly’s Auction Rooms in Dublin 8 on May 24
In these heady days of mass consumerism, there’s a natural tendency to look back to the olden days with an air of nostalgia, a mood that might explain the current love affair with buying antique jewellery and watches at auction. Some say investing in an heirloom bracelet or an engagement ring from a jewellery store is not half as cool as the adrenalin rush of online bidding or the thrill of the chase at an auction room. And then there’s the vintage watch craze that’s having a major moment too: retro Rolex, Omega and Cartier timepieces are on most guys’ lust-lists, lending themselves perfectly to occasion or wedding gifting.
