Woman On 'Antiques Roadshow' Starts Crying When She Finds Out How Much Bracelet Is Worth

I love Antiques Roadshow, do you? I love when someone comes on with a filthy old stuffed toy and finds out it's worth loads and then turns to the expert and tells a bare-faced lie about 'never being able to part with him' because of 'sentimental value', when you know 100 percent they're taking it straight to eBay within seconds of the camera cutting.

A woman who appeared on a recent episode with a pretty spectacular bracelet burst into tears when expert Geoffrey Munn told her how much it was worth. And who can blame her?

Now, given that it's platinum and diamond and old, it's fair to say the lady on the show probably had an idea it was valuable. Although judging by the look on her face, she had no clue how valuable.

Geoffrey can't get enough of the bracelet, so she must be getting excited quite early on.

"I inherited it from my mother-in-law," she said.

"It was bought for her by her husband, who may have bought it in an auction. He travelled a lot around the world so he may have purchased it anywhere on his travels." That's a bit better than a fridge magnet, isn't it?

We all know the main only reason anyone goes on to Antiques Roadshow is to find out how much something is worth. But the producers need to make an hour's worth of TV out of this, so getting the point takes a bit longer than you'd think. To be fair to the woman in the clip, she manages to hold her lip. I think after two minutes of him explaining how amazing the bracelet is, I'd have shouted, 'How much then, mate?' But she doesn't. She politely nods along, while he talks about the shape of the diamonds and how he couldn't find a maker's mark.

"I don't know about you, but I'm nearly fainting," says our man Munn. And, yeah, she does look pretty close to fainting.

So, come on then, Geoffrey, what are we saying? It's worth a whopping £150,000.

You can hear several on-lookers gasp, before the owner of the bracelet starts crying. "I can buy a Bentley now, thank you," she tells Munn.

Good choice.
