I love when people get a genuine surprise that something is really valuable - remember the lady with the old ornate bead that turned out to be a tiny Faberge egg :appl:

Yeah...me too. I normally really enjoyed listening to John but thought his reaction on this one was a bit too much.

But at least we got to see it! It reminds me of a Luc Yen spinel...

It is beautiful, I wonder if she sold it afterwards? The expert in the piece always makes pronouncements about origins of stones, size, colour and cut and sometimes I think he gets it wrong or doesn’t have enough info to tell. Certification is never mentioned!

Fab!
I think every one of us could tell right away that this is sapphire and old cut diamonds.
Or at least spinel.
And we never saw the back, so the clasp is probably beautifully made.
