A necklace from a septiagenarian, the “gift” of a great grandfather, is now in a jewelry shop in New York.
According to the owners of the jewelry shop, the necklace was originally purchased by the family of an elderly woman.
“She said she loved the necklace and would wear it with her jewelry, but she would never wear it for more than a few weeks,” said a source at the jewelry store, who did not want to be identified.
“Then one day, she died.
She had no children and had not been wearing the necklace for several months.”
The necklace has since been donated to a museum in the Bronx, and the jewelry is being sold by the owner to a collector.
The necklace is worth $3,200, according to the source.
The necklace was purchased at a New York City jewelry store.
When the necklace is presented, it is immediately put on display for a moment of reflection before it is put away for a week, the source said.
The owner of the museum, who wishes to remain anonymous, said the necklace has been there for many years.
The necklace is a “very interesting” item, the owner of a jewelry store told ABC News.
“I think it’s a really interesting piece,” the owner said.
“We don’t have any money on the table to do anything with it.”ABC News’ Julie Merten contributed to this report.
