The main hero of this story asked not to tell her real name, so we would call her Sarah. In 1980s Sarah visited a car-boot sale, where she found a beautiful ring. Actually, this jewelry wasn’t in a perfect condition and it also had the outdated setting. Nevertheless, Sarah liked it much and she paid 13 dollars as a reasonable price for such purchase.
During the next 30 years, Sarah wore this ring everywhere. She wouldn’t upset much if something happened to it. One day Sarah took this ring to the local jeweler and when the expert had estimated the value, Sarah couldn’t believe his words.
The ring Sarah wore all this time cost almost half a million dollars. As it turned out, it was a 26-carat diamond. The poor condition of the ring’s setting and its age made it looking outdating and dull. Today Sarah is going to sell her jewelry at Sotheby’s Fine Jewels sale.
So, next time when you buy something at a car-boot sale, check your purchases carefully. Who knows maybe you also become the owner of a diamond ring.
