She did not realise until recently when she asked Sotheby’s to test the ring. Much to her shock her £10 ring which she purchased at a car boot sale was actually valued at £250,000. As the ring mount was not clean and the diamond huge the owner assumed the ring was worthless and did not bother to have the ring tested before now.
At a recent auction the ring actually sold for a staggering £656,750 pounds. The jewellery’s expected a top sale of around £350,000 pounds but everyone was taken aback when the ring sold for over double the worth.
