A jeweler in Villa Park, CA, opened an envelope to find two rings that had been stolen from his store — along with an apology.

The theft took place at Jewelry Designs By Steven, KABC-TV reports. Haven Gramlich was helping two women when she noticed a ring in one of their bags.

“I see a ring in there and I was like, ‘Oh, excuse me, I’m gonna need that ring, that’s our ring.’ And she’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry, so sorry,'” Gramlich was quoted saying.

Still, after the women left, Gramlich noticed a $10,000 ring missing. She ran outside and saw the women in an SUV, and she was able to snap some photos.

Three days later, owner Steven Hurley discovered an envelope that came through the mail slot, KABC reports. It contained two rings and a note from someone who identified himself as the women’s father. He claimed the rings were taken by mistake. He’s also called the store a couple of times to apologize.

“Thank you, you know, that’s awesome that we got the rings back, but I think that they were honestly scared that they were gonna go to prison,” Gramlich said.

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.”
