Ladies 18kt. white gold Geneve tank watch 50.2gr. never worn $3,700.00 CAD. e12587

You can have the classic look of a Cartier Tank Française in solid 18 karat white gold for less than the cost of the original in steel. Stainless steel costs only pennies per gram but the gold value alone in the watch is close to $50.00 per gram and this watch weighs over 50 grams. Even if you account for the weight of the super accurate Swiss quartz movement, crystal, dial, hands, stem, synthetic cabochon jewel on the crown and other non gold parts this watch still contains around $2,250.00 worth of metal. The construction of this Cartier inspired watch is much the same as the original. Adjustable links are secured with threaded screws, the buckle is a proper folding butterfly design, the case back is held on with threaded screws too. A simple gold ring wedding band easily selling for 3 times the intrinsic metal value is considered good value; this watch is for sale at just 1.6 times the value of the gold it contains. It costs many times more to make something as complicated as a watch with its dozens of specific components. While it will never be a Cartier, it is a beautiful piece of jewellery and is a more than capable, classically styled watch. Perfect condition, never worn, showing no wear of any kind. The rhodium enhanced finish remains 100% intact. Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers is happy to provide the new owner with a complimentary one year warranty. Estate priced at $3,700.00 CAD. Stock #e12587.

14kt. 1.00ct. I1-J diamond station necklace 5.5 grams $1,190.00 CAD. e12658

We’ve had great success with these diamond station chains lately. They’ve been selling within a few days of posting them. Sometimes they sell to our walk in clients even before they hit the website much to the disappointment of our online following. Here’s your chance for a really nice one but don’t wait too long or you may miss it again. This style necklace takes inspiration from a 1920’s trend but this example is a comparatively short 16 inches. White gold with diamonds make the most of a diamonds dispersion and reflective qualities. The 35 diamonds are bezel set making them appear much larger than their actual weight of 0.028 carat each. The 1.00 carat total weight of I1-J diamonds appear almost to be floating as they drape across the collar bone. Constructed from 5.3 grams of bright white 14 karat gold the necklace is in like new condition showing no evidence of wear and tear. Secured by an easy to use and very secure lobster clasp. This previously enjoyed necklace is priced at just $34.00 per diamond or $1,190.00 CAD. Stock #e12469.
