I used to work as a pawnbroker. Lady came in one day with a necklace wanting to know if we could tell her if the stones were real. The center stone was a .75 of a carat diamond, the other 12 stones were .40 of a carat each. Bought it at an estate sale in a bag of jewlery for 17.00. Worth about 15-20,000. The stones were flawless.

Today, it's being reported as a hoax. We'll see.

You never know what you have. I've had friends who's mother had thrown out his baseball cards many of which were valuable like the 1952 Topps set. I'd be angry.
