    Appraisal Transcript:

    GUEST: It belonged to my grandmother, and her brother gave it to her as a present.

    APPRAISER: Have you ever had it appraised before?

    GUEST: 30 years ago.

    APPRAISER: Okay.

    GUEST: Maybe $6,000.

    APPRAISER: Well, it's a beautiful French Art Deco brooch. I would date it circa 1925. And it's called a jabot. And the material hides the pin stem right here so you can...

    GUEST: That's how I wear it.

    APPRAISER: Yeah, it's tucked away. It's a very chic brooch. It's made by Lacloche, which is a French jeweler. It's set with square-cut diamonds, French-cut diamonds and emeralds. And it's all within this circular top and bottom. And it's also accented with some smaller diamonds as well. So today's estimate, do you have any idea as to what it would be worth?

    GUEST: No.

    APPRAISER: At auction, I would say $15,000 to $20,000 today.

    GUEST: Very good.

    APPRAISER: It's beautiful.

    GUEST: Oh, thank you.
