Forget diamonds...pearls will be one lucky girl’s best friend after a mystery buyer splashed out a cool £78,000 on a necklace in Lancashire.

The single string of natural pearls stunned auction-goers when it went under the hammer in Leyland.

It wasn’t Sotheby’s, Bonhams or Christie’s selling, but local auctioneers Warren and Wignall.

And company bosses, whose saleroom is in Earnshaw Bridge, were the souls of discretion today, remaining tight-lipped about who sold the spectacular piece of jewellery and, more importantly, who bought it.

“Normally we would love to make a song and dance about something like this,” said auctioneer Peter Warren.

Auction houses in Britain admit natural pearls are the new diamonds, taking over as the most popular form of adornment for ladies and thus spiralling in price.

“Natural pearls have had a sudden surge in popularity recently due to their rarity and buyers across the world are looking for certified pearls like these,” explained Guy Schooling, managing director of Sworders auctioneers based in Essex. So forget diamonds, natural pearls are now a girl’s best friend!
