He faces grand theft charges.

A jeweler in California is being accused of stealing bridal pieces from several customers, the Orange County Register reports.

Daniel Cervantes, 27, “faces seven counts of grand theft but has yet to tell police what he did with the jewelry,” according to the newspaper, which cited an Irvine Police Department spokeswoman.

At least four alleged victims have been identified. They had asked Cervantes to perform jobs such as resizing or polishing the rings.

One of the pieces was an heirloom engagement ring dating to 1892.

When it was time to return the jewelry, Cervantes allegedly kept delaying and making excuses, and never gave it back, KTLA-TV reports.

According to police, Cervantes is believed to have operated under a variety of business names, including Cervantes Jewelers and Diamonds are Forever.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
