A jeweler in Manhattan is being accused of stealing two diamond rings worth over $1 million in all.

Ashot Logian, CEO of Jado jewelers, claims he lost the rings, the New York Post reports. But he’s been indicted on allegations of grand larceny and possession of stolen property.

Logian was tasked with resizing them for their owner, Carol Kleinberg, CEO of Kleinberg Electric Inc.

Insurer Lloyd’s of London has paid Kleinberg and her husband, Paul Kleinberg, more than $1 million for the jewelry.

The rings consisted of a 4.2-carat oval yellow diamond and a 10.6-carat white diamond. Both were set in platinum.

The larger of the diamonds has been located; it had been sold and resold. After being recut to a recut to a 9.6-carat emerald stone, it was submitted to the Gemological Intitute of America, which recognized it and contacted authorities.

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.”
