Antiques Roadshow guest left crying and 'unable to breathe' as she learns life-changing truth behind diamonds | The Sun

A GUEST on Antiques Roadshow was bought to tears after she discovered her diamond brooch was worth thousands.

The popular BBC show took viewers to Brodie Castle & Estate in Scotland where they got to see a variety of unusual antiques during the latest episode.

But many fans of the show were left stunned when they discovered how much the lady's brooch was worth and that it included 14 karats.

Jewellery specialist Susan Rumfitt spoke highly of the art-deco item and told the guest: "In an auction, I would expect this to fetch an excess of £20,000."

After hearing the staggering number, the woman replied: "Oh my goodness. It's taken my breath away that one."

Seeing the unexpected discovery on their screens, fans headed over to Twitter to share their thoughts on the valuation.

While a third remarked: "Size of these diamonds!"

The news comes after another guest was also left gobsmacked by the value of their rather unusual vase.

A man bought the item on the show while confessing he only paid £7.99 for it.
