Above: The owner of this 19th-century diamond, pearl and platinum heirloom necklace knew she had something special when she brought it to ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Chattanooga, Tennessee. However, the rare five-carat diamond centerpiece puts the jewelry in a category all its own, with an estimated value of $250,000.

Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.
