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.

Wilkerson Paves the Way for the Future

After serving the San Antonio, Texas community for decades, C. Aaron Peñaloza Jewelers closed its doors earlier this year. Aaron and Mary Peñaloza, the store’s owners, chose Wilkerson to handle their retirement sale. “In the first six days, we did six months’ worth of business,” says Aaron. “In the first three weeks, we did a year’s worth of business.” Mary Peñaloza says Wilkerson’s ability to tailor the sale to their store’s requirements really made it all so much easier. “They are professionals,” she says. “They know what they’re doing. They have a plan, but they will listen to you and adjust that plan to your needs.”
