Antiques Roadshow is currently urging fans from up and down the country to root around in their attics and at the back of their cupboards for treasures and rare finds to bring to the next series. While there are currently no new episodes airing on a Sunday night, the popular BBC One show is taking a look back at some of their best bits. And Expert Joey Hardy was utterly astonished when she set her eyes on a “splendidly bonkers” bracelet. But how much was it worth? 

“I’m just going to show those – if you don’t mind – to the audience here,” Joanna said. 

“And to the men especially, now you’ve stopped! 

“Your mum would wear that, excellent,” she reiterated a comment from a guest. “It’s a risk? It is, 50/50. 

“Already I can’t stop from wanting to pick this up. This has got to be the most splendidly bonkers jewel I have ever see on the Antiques Roadshow.”

She then turned to the owner and asked: “Now, when you received this, what was your reaction?”

“It was given to me as a present and when I opened it, I just went ‘wow,’” the lady replied. 

“It was a present?” Joanna clarified. 

“Yes from my partner. He likes unusual things and he knows I like unusual things. And it’s so feminine as well,” the guest added. 

“It is just extraordinary, I can’t stop looking at it. And it’s not costume jewellery. People initially might think it’s costume jewellery. Did you think that?” The jewellery expert questioned. 

“I did at first, because it’s so busy,” the lady said. 

“Theres a lot going on isn’t there. But no, everything here is real,” Joanna remarked. 

“I mean absolutely everything; you’ve got turquoise, rock crystals which have been carved into petals, you’ve got sea-cultured pearls,” she said taking a closer look at the details.

“If I just keep turning it around, you’ve got a little nephrite frog here, I mean look at it! it’s all gold, beautiful filigree work. 

“I would say it’s Italian, I cannot find any marks anywhere. 

“And does it fit you?” She asked and then asked: “Can I just see? Let’s just what it looks like on you, look at that?” 

“It’s lovely!” The guest commented. 

“Well,, do you know, something like this, I would say, at auction, £8,000-£10,000,” Joanna revealed. 

Stunned by the price tag, the owner replied: “Really? Wow. 

“Oh my God. Wow. That’s lovely, that’s really lovely.”

Antiques Roadshow airs on Sunday evenings at 8pm on BBC One.
