Ring Bought At London Garage Sale Could Be Worth $500K
According to the Huffington Post, while shopping at a garage sale at West Middlesex University Hospital in West London, an unidentified woman may have unwittingly scored a one-of-a-kind discount! The woman purchased a £10 (or approximately $13) diamond ring at the garage sale, and assumed it to be costume jewelry due to its heavy antique setting. But after a jeweler suggested that it may be real, she had it appraised, and was shocked to discover it in fact was a genuine 19th century cushion-cut diamond. Soon afterwards, Sotheby's of London, the revered auction house which specializes in the expensive and historic, confirmed the authenticity of the stone, estimating the 26.27-carat diamond at about $450,000, thanks to its near-flawless color and clarity.
