“Queen Victoria bought things from him and the other is very late 19th century, we know it is between 1896 and 1914.”
The guest explained: “This was given to me by an English godmother, but I am ashamed to say I took the chain off and used to go swimming with it on.”
It came to the time to put a number on the jewellery, and Geoffrey was poised with a number.
He said: “The Italian jewel from the 20th century, I think if you wanted to buy that one now, £10,000.
“And this one, I would say anywhere between £7,000 and £10,000.”
The guest was stunned but also said how horrified she was with herself for how she had kept the jewels over the years, she said: “I really shouldn’t have done that”.
She concluded by saying she will be taking a lot better care of them now that she knew their value.
