Summary
COI synopsis: Today the price of precious metals has reached an all time high. People are even selling their family heirlooms for their scrap metal value. Vicki Luke meets Richard Ogden, a well-known lecturer and antique jeweller who tells us why we must get a proper valuation of pieces we wish to dispose of. He also shows her how to date rings and she takes a look at his Ring Room, reputed to hold one of the largest collections of modern wedding rings in the world.
