About the find

When appraiser Jill Burgum arrived at ROADSHOW’s 2012 event in Seattle, Washington, little did she know that her first appraisal of the day would be one of the favorites of her career. A woman named Joan brought in an exquisite Louis Comfort Tiffany necklace that had been in her family since her great-grandmother received it as a gift in the early 1900s. Burgum gave the necklace an auction estimate of $30,000 to $40,000 and recommended that Joan contact the Tiffany archives to confirm the necklace’s provenance. Learn from Jill what happened after Joan followed up with Tiffany and what the necklace is worth today.
