According to a report published by The U.S. Sun, in her description of the event, she mentioned the earrings were dirty but had a “so shiny” gold appearance, and their backs were marked. 

Despite their condition, the estate sales cashier needed to be more certain of their origin, even putting the jewelry in her mouth to authenticate them. She didn't believe the earrings had come from a dollar box, but the price had been reduced to that. The Redditor estimates that the earrings could retail between $60 and $100.

Some Redditors labeled the purchase as a “steal.” As per the report, comments ranged from praise for her find, like, “Those are beautiful! Congrats. I hope you enjoy them,” to surprise at the extraordinary deal, with another user exclaiming, “Holy smokes. That’s such a good deal, it’s a crime.”
