The story of the missing diamond
So, this is the story of the missing diamond. 2 years ago my husband bought me diamond studs for our Anniversary. He splurged, and bought me 3 carats of amazing bling. Well, Wednesday night I took off my jewelry before bed, and put it on my nightstand. The next morning, we were having our house cleaned, so I grabbed my jewelry, and threw it in a ring box and stuck it in the closet. I got home later that day, and noticed that one of my earring backs was on the dresser, I just figured that I forgot to put it in the box. Friday night I went to put the earrings on, and realized that there was only one earring. I searched the house, the floor, under the bed, in the nightstand, my dresser drawers, my purses.....you get the idea. Well, no earring anywhere. I called the cleaning service to see if they had found anything, but of coarse they were closed for the weekend, so I left a message, and just stressed ALL weekend. This morning they called and left a message that they had gone through the vacuum bag on Saturday, and found nothing, and that they were very sorry. AAAGH!!! I called them back, and begged them to let me go through the bag with a sifter, so they said come on down. On my way there, they called to let me know that they had found the setting for the diamond, but there was no diamond in the bag. Double AAAGH!!! I got to the cleaning center, and the receptionist told me that she had (bless her heart) sifted through the disgusting cleaner bag one more time, and in fact had just found my diamond. There it was.....a beautiful 1.5 carat beautiful shiny diamond, no worse f0r the wear, just sitting on her desk. I must say it was a huge relief. (I have no insurance on my jewelry, although my husband has been nagging me to do it for years).......so, I may just buy a lotto ticket tomorrow, along with a nice gift certificate for the sweet receptionist. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
