Road Trip Antiques expert’s eyes light up after VERY lucky spot on vintage jewelry stand
The experts at ANTIQUES Road Trip were stunned by an exceptional profit on a vintage piece of jewelry.
BBC stars Izzie Balmer and Charlie Ross traveled to Surrey to snag the best bargains with a sparkling pendant necklace catching their eye.
Derbyshire-born Izzie, 31, admitted she wasn’t sure if the pink drop-shaped pendant contained diamonds, but gushed: “” This is absolutely gorgeous, it’s 100% my cup Some tea. “
When it was confirmed that the jewelry did contain sapphires and diamonds, she bought the pretty piece for £ 25.
The BBC One expert said she had “high hopes” for her story, which Charlie echoed when commenting on the auction bids.
He said enthusiastically, “He goes like the tap dance, they are blasting all these online bidders in action.”
It is absolutely beautiful, it is 100% my cup of tea. “
As auction fees hit £ 80, Charlie hid his eyes.
Still, Izzie tried to make a bigger profit as she clapped, “Can we get £ 100? Come on.”
The auction ultimately closed at £ 95 meaning Izzie made a whopping £ 70 profit.
Yet despite his victory, Charlie topped the table with his profits at the end of the day.
This isn’t all good news and profit for the show, as recently expert Steven Moore was “broken” when his porcelain teapot was bombed at an auction.
Steven shelled out for a £ 90 porcelain teapot, but with the auctioneer starting the auction at £ 50, things weren’t going well.
As there was no more auction, the auctioneer said: ‘£ 50 on the internet, a very early teapot. Doesn’t anyone else come in at £ 50? “
Steven let out a huge sigh after the teapot sold for just £ 50, a loss of £ 40.
