At the age of eight, John Swanton recalls being in total awe upon seeing and handling a fiery boulder opal for the first time. Little did he realise that this moment would spark his life-long passion for collecting gemstones and jewels. In his early twenties, John set off for London where he developed a particular passion for Art Deco enamel jewellery and was exposed to a range of period jewellery pieces. For the past thirty years John has worked directly within the auction industry, starting out as an antiques cataloguer and then onto becoming an auctioneer and valuer, working mostly with jewellery. These pieces, selected from John’s personal collection illustrate the discerning eye of a jewellery connoisseur. We are privileged to showcase these beautiful items in our 3 September auction. Part Two will be auctioned at our Melbourne showrooms on 6 September.
