I’m a bit confused… the daughter had the platinum ring?

or the daughter sold the platinum ring?

@bunnyharriet:  Wow indeed, but at least your friend got a fair deal from that jeweler and isn’t getting ripped off.  Now she just has to deal with getting ripped off by her daughter.

Oh, ok I think i got it now.

The daughter found a silver ring that looked like the platinum ring in order to fool her mom and switch it with her mom’s platinum ring. Then she sold the platinum ring.

Then she came clean and told her mom about it just now.

Sorry, it took me a while to figure it out Embarassed

Time to start a payment plan for the value of the ring.  Wow.

Were the rings identical? How did your friend not notice the change?

Either way, that’s really sad that her daughter would sell her mom’s ring..

Holy shit that is awful. Somebody owes mama a nice ring stat! I don’t care if she has to get another job I couldn’t/wouldn’t EVER do this to my mother or anyone and if I did I would do everything in my power to make it right, even working 3 jobs!

I suffer from depression, it never made me steal anything. I suspect something else is at play here (perhaps a drug habit?). Either way at least your friend didn’t have to embarrass herself at the jewelers.

I can’t believe your friend didn’t notice the change, especially if, like you said, the rings weren’t identical. That’s insane. I can understand that someone like you wouldn’t notice, but as someone who wears the ring every day and OWNS it, your friends didn’t notice? That’s just mind blowing to me.

Wow..

At least she came clean before her mom went to the jewelers…that would have been awfully embarrassing :-S

This sucks for your friend, I have an aunt who pulled stuff like than on my grandmother, it got to the point where my grandma was giving her “special” things to family members before she passed away, and she ws right to do so..my aunt sold/took everything after she died.
