Halifax – A woman from Halifax, who accidentally donated a lifetime collection of gold, diamonds and pearls, hopes to return to her jewelry.
Jane Lowe figured too late when her husband broke the bag of valuable gifts and family inheritances in a donation bag when the couple walked out of town.
The treasures included a series of pearls endowed by her father, golden tennis bracelet, diamond and amethyst earrings and golden necklaces from a family member who died.
Lowe contacted Diabetes Canada, who picked up the clothes, and the values of the countryside where the bag could have ended.
The people she spoke were housed and eager to help, but now she is waiting for a possible return to her collection.
"I hope we will return it, but I really do not have a specific reason to hope. It's just, I guess, luck, are not you?" Lowe said Friday from her home in Halifax.
Employees with valuable villages told Low that the valuables like those they described were usually brought to the superintendent to be detailed and locked in a safe place, but so far no one has reported that it has the jewelry.
While the value is certainly significant for some lost treasures, Lowe does not believe that most items could be sold at a pawn shop for their initial price – the biggest blow was the loss of irreplaceable heirs.
Some items, including an emerald and diamond ring, were particularly valuable, but Lowe said that the sentimental value of her grandmother's imitation pearls, for example, can not be awarded at a price.
"Sometimes, whether it's real or not, it does not matter, that's what it means to you," she said.
The error was a sincere misunderstanding.
Lowe had already sorted out the daisies and did not think to see them through them, and she did not know where she hid the bag, something that made him a precautionary measure when they left the house for a long time.
"We understand, of course, but I just did not mean to ask him," she said.
The loss of so many memory-loaded objects is a pity. Lowe hoped that one day he would give jewelry to his children and grandchildren, but she was trying to stay positive and appreciate her other life blessings.
"We are healthy and have a good life, so you have to think about those things."
