GUEST: I got this at an auction house in Florida about middle '70s. It was early in the evening and I got the bid.
APPRAISER: And what did you pay?
APPRAISER: This is Cartier, Paris, dates from the 1960s. The nose is one solid emerald. It has beautiful diamonds. And today, if you had to buy it at auction, you'd be raising your hand upwards of $6,000.
GUEST: Oh, my Lord!
APPRAISER: That's right. You really did well.
