WHO OWNED THIS?-Provenance Counts

This beautiful piece caught my eye as I was looking through the archives of one of my favorite shows http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/archive/200204A40.html
This 19th centure cluster necklace without a provenance was valued at $800 but because it was given to the owners family by Mary Todd Lincoln the value jumps to $2,500-3,500. For a full transcript of the valuation go to the link above.
