Remember the case of the missing owner of a $40,000 Diamond Ring – they’ve been traced thanks to a lot of hard work by the jewelry store and the surreal honesty of the finders of the ring.
The Stetzers found the diamond ring a parking lot of a Virginia Mall and traced it back to a local jewelers, Mervis Diamond Importers. The jewelers and the Stetzers advertised, investigated and tried every which way to return the ring to its rightful owner. Finally, yesterday, a happy Mark and Susan Brahms were reunited with their ring.
The Stetzers said the grateful couple gave them a reward, which they plan to donate to a charity.
If they hadn’t found the owners, he and his wife had already decided to auction off the ring, valued at $40,000, and give the money to charity. It was never theirs to keep, Stetzer said.
“We didn’t earn it,” he said. “That’s not the way I was brought up; my wife neither.”
In other diamond news, bad boy rocker, Peter Doherty is planning to have the ashes of his cat Shelley made into a diamond ring. According to UK Now Magazine, he’s reportedly commissioned the piece from Lifegem and is planning to give the sparkler to his ex, spindly super-model Kate Moss. Apparently the cat was her favourite pet when they dated last year. I’m sure wearing the carbonized ashes of a cat is just what she dreams of.
If you’re interested in wearing your dearly departed, Lifegem turns the cremated ashes of grandma, Fido, Uncle Barney and great-aunt Maisy and her pets into diamonds. If saying goodbye is too painful – don’t – turn them into a jewelry instead. (The ring picture is an actual diamond ring of a ‘Precious Pet Lifegem’).
