AN ANTIQUES Roadshow guest refused to wear a diamond necklace after a staggering valuation.
Sunday’s episode was filmed at Brodie Castle & Estate in Morayshire, Scozia.
Jewellery specialist Susan Rumfitt met a lady who had brought in a stunning piece of jewellery.
Lei disse: “On this slightly overcast day we’ve got a gorgeous pink and Whitestone necklace to brighten the day up. How did it come into your collection?”
The lady replied: “It was my ex-husband’s aunt, she gave me it 30 anni fa.”
She then added that she had only worn it once as she feared “breaking it”.
Susan gave some details of the piece, detto: “It dates from the late 19th, early 20th century.
“We’re getting into the period of what we know is the Garland style of jewellery or the Belle Époque period of jewellery, which is all about these gorgeous swags pendant drops delicacy and is a period greatly associated with diamonds and pearls and a highlight of a colour within the piece of jewellery as well.
“If you think about the beautiful balls that happened during this time with the ladies in the total glamour, absolutely amazing.”
She then revealed it was worth between £3,000 and £5,000.

Ha poi aggiunto: “That’s even more of a reason you wouldn’t wear it.”
But the shocked guest replied: “Oh gosh, I wouldn’t dare.”
