Gemmologist Heather Callaway said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to recycle pre-loved designer and luxury items and convert the proceeds into your latest designer crush.”
Vintage jewellery expert Louise Ludlam-Snook added: “Items ideally need to be in good condition and it’s worth having a good look for original receipts, boxes and packaging too as this all adds to the interest and achieving top prices at auction.”
More details will be announced in the coming weeks. The sale will include a charitable element supporting the We Love Lichfield fund.
Watch specialist Ben Winterton said: “This is another exciting development for us as a Lichfield family firm – it’s a new specialist sale in a new location and we are looking for some of the biggest names and designers in the world of fashion and watches.
“As usual the auction will also be online and we are expecting to attract international attention.”
