What happens when a diamond ring valued at $456,000 is bought for $13?

Thirty years ago, a woman in Isleworth, west London, bought an “exceptionally sized” ring she assumed was costume jewellery for £10 ($13) at a car boot sale. Now, after decades of wearing the ring daily, she’s about to get £350,000 ($455,000) for it at a Sotheby’s auction in July, if it sells for its expected price. That’s because the ring is actually a 26-carat, cushion-shaped white diamond from the 19th Century, according to the BBC. Head of Sotheby’s London jewellery department Jessica Wyndham called the ring a “one-off windfall, an amazing find.” According to the Evening Standard, the owners are “incredibly excited.” “Anyone would be in this position, it’s a life-changing amount of money,” she said. “No matter what your background is or what your past experiences have been, it’s going to revolutionise someone’s life.”
