Antiques Roadshow: Pittsburgh, Part 2
Monday, February 24 at 9:00 p.m.
A 6.5 carat yellow mine cut diamond ring kept for years in a sock drawer is one this week's highlights.
Against the formidable backdrop of Pittsburgh’s former Homestead Steel Works, appraiser Peter Shemonsky shows host Mark L. Walberg strikingly delicate examples of centuries-old jewelry fashioned out of steel and iron.
Episode highlights include a North American Indian club and pipe the owner believes belonged to Sitting Bull; and three Charles Darwin first editions.
