GUEST: This is a bracelet that is from my fiancé's family. And I understand that it is from his great-grandmother or his grandmother. And his dad gave it to him, and he asked me to marry him with this and my engagement ring.
APPRAISER: Oh, wow. How can you say no to that?
GUEST: I know! (laughs)
APPRAISER: Have you ever had it appraised before, do you have any idea what it's worth?
GUEST: I haven't. I thought maybe that this piece may be worth about $4,000.
APPRAISER: It's an Art Deco diamond bracelet. It dates to about 1925 to about 1930, in that range. It's set with four carats of diamonds. And the center stone is an old European-cut diamond. It weighs about 0.85 carats, and it's mounted in platinum. And it's a beautiful design. A bracelet like this, if you went to buy it in a nice retail store, would probably sell for about $8,000 to $10,000.
GUEST: (gasps) Really?
