“I keep having these moments where I could break into tears. I know there are a lot of problems in the world and this might seem small, but it means everything to me. My wedding is on Sunday,” she explained.

“She died when I was young but that was one of the few pieces of jewelry I actually have memories of her wearing. It’s very special to me,” Tepper explained about the importance of her grandmother's ring.

“Before I got engaged that was the ring I wore everyday,” she added.

 

Her fiancé, younger brother, and about ten pals have been scouring local pawn shops hoping to find the missing jewels but to no avail.

The thief also swiped $8,000 in laptops, cameras, camera lenses and cash from the apartment, police said.

Included in the jewel haul, was a pair of diamond studs, other assorted necklaces, earrings and rings, according to police.

One of the necklaces has a Hummingbird covered in emeralds.

According to the police, burglaries are considered “crimes of opportunity,” and thieves often climb through unlocked windows and doors while unsuspecting victims aren’t home.

“It’s a real problem. This sort of crime can be easily avoided. Lock your windows when you go out. Don’t leave your front door open,” said a police source.
