TV column “Bares for Rares”: “War goosebumps”: Piece of jewelry achieves dream sum
“Bares for Rares” jewelry expert Wendela Horz is absolutely delighted with a piece of jewelry that had to lie dormant in a drawer for a long time. The inherited ring with real sapphire is worth several thousand euros.
This little treasure slumbered in the saleswoman’s drawer for far too long: First the “Bares for Rares” expert Wendela Horz surprised the lady with the expertise, then unexpectedly high bids followed in the dealer room.
“Whoa! Jessas, Maria and Josef!” moderator Horst Lichter first had to put his glasses back in view of the sparkling stones. “I’m blown away again!”
Horst Lichter on “Bares for Rares”: “Where did you get this monster ring from?”
“Where did you get this monster ring from?” asked the moderator Sabina from Berlin. She replied: “From my mother. I inherited that. Unfortunately, she died 16 or 17 years ago.” The ring has been in a drawer ever since.
Wendela Horz dated the piece of jewelry to the 1970s: “The ring you brought is made of 750 gold.” It was set with diamonds and brilliants of 2 carats and a sapphire of 5.5 carats: “That’s big .”
Jewelry expert Wendela Horz is thrilled.
“The sapphire in your ring is definitely natural. Unfortunately, without a microscopic examination, it is not possible to determine whether it is untreated.” However, Wendela Horz suspected that the stone was reused from an older piece of jewellery.
“A very well-known ringhead. Actually known today from Lady Di’s famous engagement ring,” the jewelry expert pointed out to the flower-shaped arrangement. She rated the workmanship as “very high quality”.
“I get goosebumps!”
“I thought at least 1800 euros,” Sabina revealed her desired price. Wendela Horz even estimated the value at 4000 euros. “I get goosebumps!” Sabina was flattened. “I didn’t expect that after all!”

An enthusiastic “Ui! Wow!“. Friedrich Häusser took a closer look at the ring: “You really have to see it up close. Craziness! Very nice!”
“You bring a dream jewel”, Susanne Steiger greeted the saleswoman. “It’s beautiful!” Walter Lehnertz opened the negotiation with 1080 euros. Susanne Steiger didn’t hesitate: “I’ll continue with 5000 euros.”
“A nice jump,” the colleagues quickly got out. Only David Suppes dared to try again with 5500 euros, which Susanne Steiger immediately countered with 6000 euros. Sabina gladly accepted the bid: “I’m totally happy!” “That’s just incredible!” Sabina stared at the bundle of bills in bewilderment. “I’ve never had so much money in my hands!”
