As an unabashed fan of PBS's Antiques Roadshow, I am here to tell you, my fellow millennials, two things: A) Watching this show is the only way to get through 2017 in one piece, and B) It's featured some of the most stunning jewelry your eyes will ever behold. Which makes sense—Antiques Roadshow showcases long-forgotten gems that wouldn't otherwise see the public eye. Here's the best of the best. (By which we mean the most $$$ of the $$$.)More
Value: $75,000 to $100,000, auction.
About: Circa 1930, this canary yellow diamond ring was passed down through the owner's family—and is absolutely massive for a yellow Asscher-cut diamond. To quote the appraiser: "It's very hard to get that combination. I've had only one small one in 26 years in the business. So that tells you it's rare." Even cooler, the $75-$100k value was considered "very conservative" back in 2006, so in today's market this thing is likely through the roof.
Value: $165,000 to $175,000, retail.
About: This Asscher-cut ring is even more valuable than the one preceding it. For starters, it's a little older—hailing from 1915. The piece comes care of the owner's grandfather's jewelry store, weighs approximately five carats, and is described as a "very, very clean stone." And yes, the appraiser completely nerded out, saying: "That's quite a ring you've got there. I mean, we don't see rings like that."
