This could have tremendous value and you don’t even know it.
David: And that’s such a great point.
Host: I think something like this to you and say you know I have no clue David. What do you do? What’s the first thing that you do?
David: It actually if you look at this carefully you could get easily it confused with costume or fashion jewelry.
David: And I pick that out on the side and I said to you “Look at this.” And you kinda gave me the googly-eyes and said to me “Okay, what am I supposed to like about this?” Well, this is David Webb, who is America’s fine, one of America’s finest designers it’s 18 karat and platinum ——
David: All enamel with diamonds and rubies but the beauty is that. This doesn’t sell so well necessarily here in the States but we have a big clientele for this in the far east.
Host: Okay, see that’s what, what we won’t know and that’s what you know, so tell me what is the value of this.
David: A piece I got should bring around fifteen to seventeen thousand.
Host: Okay, you’ve gotta be kidding me. Now actually, I —— I’m picking it up and I can tell it’s heavy.
Host: But, but you know the untrained I would be like “Yeah! Costume jewelry, what! Seventeen thousand dollars ——
