Luxury and designer goods including diamond, gold and platinum jewellery are up for grabs, after being seized from criminals.

Wilson's Auctions is putting 190 lots under the hammer this week and some include brand new 9ct and 18ct gold and diamond rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets as well as platinum and diamond rings.

Other designer items include high-value Rolex, Tag Heuer, Raymond Weil and Gucci watches and designer handbags and accessories by Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Celine and Chloe.

Some of what the auctioneer sells have been seized from criminals by the police.

Merseyside police and other government agencies use Wilsons when assets such as these are taken under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

While some assets are being sold by Wilsons Auctions on behalf of its government and law enforcement other lots come from private clients.
