A guest who appeared on Antiques Roadshow was bought to tears after she discovered her diamond brooch was worth £20,000.

The popular BBC show, which airs on Sunday nights, took viewers to Brodie Castle & Estate in Scotland where they got to see a variety of unusual antiques during the latest episode.

But many fans of the show were left stunned when they discovered how much the woman's brooch was worth and that it included 14 karats.

Jewellery specialist Susan Rumfitt spoke highly of the art-deco item and told the guest: "In an auction I would expect this to fetch an excess of £20,000."

After hearing the staggering number, the woman replied: "Oh my goodness. It's taken my breath away that one."

She added: "Oh crumbs, it brings tears to my eyes."

Susan asked: "And you will still wear it, wont you?"

The lady replied: "Yeah absolutely."

Seeing the unexpected discovery on their screens, fans headed over to Twitter to share their thoughts on the valuation.

One viewer wrote: "The diamonds were more valuable than she thought…£20,000!"

Another chimed: "Size of these diamonds!!!"

Meanwhile a third person wrote: "Art deco diamond brooch, that'll do nicely for my collection, just need £20,000 but if had £20,000 all be gone on electric & gas."

The news comes after another guest was also left gobsmacked by the value of their rather unusual vase.

A man bought the item on the show while confessing he only paid £7.99 for it.

Chinese ceramics expert Lars Tharp inspected the man's vase and said: "In fact it’s not one vase, it’s two vases.

"There’s another vase inside, that’s actually quite a tricky thing to do.

"What’s really special about this is the shape. This is one of the oldest shapes known to Chinese culture, this is an ancient shape. The question is: Is it ancient?'"
