Think losing your luggage is bad? How about when your luggage contains more than $150,000 worth jewelry!?
That's exactly what happened to the Duchess of Argyll back in 2006 when her bag of priceless bling went missing at the Glasgow Airport.
The Duchess filed a report with the Art Loss Register, but the jewels never turned up.
Sure enough six years later the Duchess of Argyll miraculously came across her long lost Victorian era diamond tiara, Cartier brooch and pearl necklace given as a 21st birthday present in a Scottish auction catalog.
So the $157,000 is: how'd they get there?
Apparently the jewels were recovered by the airport, but instead of telling the police, they sold them to a Glasgow diamond trader for $7,500!
Can you say bargain baggage price!?
The 68 year old has since been reunited with her jewels, but unfortunately not all of the items have been recovered.
The Duchess is still missing her pearl earrings and emerald ring, so if you see any hanging out at the Admiral's Club in the Glasgow airport, you know who to call.
