Relief for local who lost her jewellery
THE owner of lost jewellery now found at Shute Harbour has been identified and to say she was relieved would be an understatement.
“I’m beyond relieved and I’m so grateful for people being honest,” she said.
On Tuesday, a green felt bag containing four distinct and valuable rings was handed in to the Whitsunday Police Station.
Thankfully, it didn’t take long for the owner to come forward and take her jewellery home.
The Airlie local of 13 years, who didn’t want to be named, was enjoying her Saturday morning at a beach in Shute Harbour when she lost her rings.
However, she didn’t realise she’d lost them until Monday afternoon.
The woman, who is in her early 50s, said the rings were irreplaceable and were of sentimental value to both her and her husband of 33 years.
“It’s so reassuring for the human race and it’s amazing to know there’s some lovely people out there,” she said.
“I’m going to give (the woman who handed them in) a gift when I find out who she is because she deserves one.”
