Too bad she didn't have insurance on the stuff that got stolen, especially the ring. Too bad the thief or thieves took advantage of her like that. She was trying to earn money for her wedding. That really sucks. Sooner or later the thief is going to try and pawn the stuff, and I hope the cops catch him. Then she can get her stuff back.

Things like gold rings and or other things made of precious metals are very difficult to trace.They have no serial number or other marks other than the marks indecating what it is made of,14k or 10k for instance.

My home was broken into and some jewlery was stolen. The police said that it is very rare that items like that are found and returned to the rightful owner.Theives normaly take the items to these places that buy gold and the otems are sent off to be melted down never to be seen again.Most theives know that pawn shops pay shit for things like gold or silver, most of them either sell it to an individual off the streets or send it off to a refinery.

I would suggest keeping things like that close to the table that you use as the register and stay close by to prevent someone from slipping it into their pocket and runing off.
