AN ANTIQUES Roadshow guest refused to wear a diamond necklace after a shocking review.
Sunday’s episode was filmed at Brodie Castle & Estate in Morayshire, Scotland.
Jewelry specialist Susan Rumfitt met a lady who brought in a stunning piece of jewelry.
She said: “On this slightly overcast day we have a beautiful pink and whitestone necklace to brighten your day. How did it get into your collection?”
The lady replied: “It was my ex-husband’s aunt, she gave it to me 30 years ago.”
He then added that he only wore it once because he was afraid he would “break it”.
Susan explained some of the details of the piece, saying: “It’s from the late 19th century, early 20th century.
“We’re entering an era that we know is the Garland style jewelry or the Belle Époque era of jewelry, which is all about the finesse of these beautiful swags pendant drops, and a period that is strongly associated with diamonds and pearls and the highlight of jewelry. a color within the jewelry as well.
“When you think about the beautiful balls that went on during that time with the ladies in full glamour, it’s absolutely amazing.”
He then revealed that it was worth between £3,000 and £5,000.
He then added, “That’s all the more reason you shouldn’t wear it.”
But the stunned guest replied: “My God, I wouldn’t dare.”
