Antiques Roadshow fans floored as royal jewels are brought to expert in plastic bag

A lady left Antiques Roadshow fans dumbfounded as she presented Royal jewellery that was believed to be from the 18th century to the show in a carrier bag.

The items in question included two brooches that were claimed to belong to Lady Zia.

One piece was gold and boasted a huge purple amethyst stone while the other item was completely covered in real pearls.

The expert believed that one brooch could have even been a creation made by French jeweller Tiffany.

Having analysed the sparkling items, the expert reached the conclusion that the two pieces could fetch up to £13,000 – if the story and Tiffany element were to be true.

Before discussing the value, the antiques specialist was left flabbergasted that the expensive heirlooms had been brought to the programme in a plastic bag.

Pointing out the packaging he chuckled: “You even brought these to me today in a plastic bag.”

“Yes, well it seemed the best way to get them here,” joked the lady.
