First State Auctions is Australia’s leading jewellery auction house specialising in fine jewellery, Swiss watches and gemstones.
When First State Auctions first launched in 1995 in Sydney, we represented a better way to purchase quality jewellery pieces - often at below wholesale prices. We hold regular jewellery auctions in all major Australian cities and New Zealand. We conduct over 80 auctions every year (see upcoming auctions to find an auction near you).
We pride ourselves in being the only jewellery auction house owned and operated by gemmologists and diamond graders. All jewellery submitted for auction is checked by at least 2 in-house gemmologists, that’s why we can unconditionally guarantee the accuracy of all auction catalogue descriptions. You can bid at our auctions with the knowledge that you are getting what you paid for.
We are very proud to have been selected by Commonwealth of Australia government departments as their auctioneers in the sale of seized and recovered jewellery. Our services range from acting on behalf of liquidators in jewellery business insolvencies to selling on behalf of private vendors.
We strive to make each auction an exciting event, full of fun and offering an easy way to buy jewellery that is both affordable and beautiful.
Experience the difference today with First State Auctions – the first name and last word in jewellery excellence!
