An ANTIQUES tour guest was bought to tears after discovering her diamond brooch was worth thousands of dollars.
The popular BBC show took viewers to Brodie Castle and Estate in Scotland, where they got to see a variety of unusual antiquities in the latest episode.
But many fans of the show were stunned when they found out how much the lady’s brooch was worth and that it included 14 carats.
Jewelery specialist Susan Rumfitt praised the art deco item and told the guest: ‘At an auction I would expect it to fetch a £20,000 surplus.
After hearing the staggering number, the woman replied, “Oh my God. He took my breath away that one.”
Seeing the unexpected find on their screens, fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the valuation.
One viewer wrote: “The diamonds were worth more than she thought…£20,000!”
A second added: “Art deco diamond brooch, will go well for my collection…”
While a third remarked: “Size of those diamonds!”
The news comes after another guest was also stunned by the value of their rather unusual vase.
A man bought the item on the show while admitting he only paid £7.99 for it.
Chinese ceramics expert Lars Tharp inspected the man’s vase and said, “Actually, it’s not one vase, it’s two vases.”
Lars then told the gentleman his item was worth between £5,000 and £10,000.
Antiques Roadshow is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
