A black widow spider brooch supposedly made by Faberge sold for $15,000 on the reality show "Pawn Stars" in 2010. The company states that Faberge spider brooch's are fake because the company does not create arachnid jewelry.
On the show, the woman who sold it had no idea of its real value. She asked for $2,000, but the shop paid $15,000, thinking its potential value could vastly exceed her offer.
According to Time Magazine, Faberge spokeswoman Tatiana Zherebkina states that arachnids are not representative of the house style.
