On Saturday afternoon, a University Park woman and her daughter went to Highland Park Village to eat lunch and shop. When they returned home at 3:30 p.m., the daughter noticed that a 2-carat pear-shaped diamond was missing from her mother's wedding band.
The mother last recalls seeing the stone, which is valued somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000, while eating at Patrizio. She called all of the stores they visited, as well as the Highland Park Department of Public Safety, just in case someone finds it and turns it in.
Now that would be a story.
