Horst Lichter receives a visit from two ladies and a ring. Cheyenne Schacht inherited the piece of jewelry from her grandmother, who in turn got it from her mother. But she doesn't want to wear it. So she came to the Pulheim rolling mill together with her mother Birgit from Lübeck to auction it at "Bares for Rares". When Horst Lichter hears about the young woman's job, he is flabbergasted: "My God, how do you get a job like that?" She is the Judicial Secretary at the Court.
Wendela Horz dates the ring to around 1890. However, it was reworked again in the 1950s: she recognizes diamonds in modern cuts as well as in cuts from the late 19th century. The sapphire in the middle is Kaiser Wilhelm's favorite color.
Cheyenne would like 900 euros for the ring. This coincides with the expert estimate: Wendela Hort estimates the value at 800 to 1000 euros. The 900 euros are right there.
And maybe there's more: "A beautiful antique ring," enthuses Elke Velten-Tönnies when examining the object. And Esther Ollick shouted: "Whoa, does it sparkle!" Wolfgang Pauritsch offers 500 euros to start with. In increments of 100, it initially goes up to 900 euros. The desired price would have been reached. But with reference to their horse, the Schachts try to get a little more money out of it. With success: in the end, Velten-Tönnies pays 1,100 euros for the ring.
"That's plenty of carrots for my horse," says Cheyenne Schacht when the buyer hands over the money. Mother and daughter are beaming from ear to ear when they leave the dealer's room. "I'm more than happy with 1100 euros," says the young woman.
