Theodore Bruce are pleased to offer an interesting range of fine rugs, gems and precious stones across two auctions, both of which close on Sunday 19 April at 6pm.

Of particular note in the rug sale are a Kashmiri silk rug which features an intricate floral design, a handwoven Persian Isfahan with a miribota and palmette design and an Indian Jaipur silk hand knotted rug with a beautiful floral design.

These are amongst the many fantastic rugs we have on offer with prices starting at $50 with the best rugs on offer available with a guide price of $2,000-$3,000.

For the aspiring lapidarist or for those who simply appreciate beautiful jewels, gems and precious stones we recommend taking note of the Watermelon Tourmaline. Considered the most popular bicolor tourmaline it has a pink interior and a green rind – just like a slice of watermelon. The closer the colors match those of a real watermelon, the more people enjoy them and the higher the price.
