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.”

the tennis bracelet

The meet tennis bracelet.
Following the Sunday tennis match between the two legends, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal..
we thought it would be a perfect occasion to introduce some of our finest…tennis bracelets.

They are thin, super stylish pieces of wrist jewelry that feature a symmetrical pattern of diamonds.


The name Tennis Bracelet is related back to when Chris Evert, a professional tennis player from 1972 to 1989, lost her designer diamond bracelet during a match at US Open.
The clasp that was on her diamond bracelet snapped,
fell off and she asked the game officials to pause the tennis match until her jewelry could be found.
From that day, the line diamond bracelet has been called the tennis bracelet.
Many tennis stars such as Serena Williams continue to wear one.
