A WOMAN is appealing for the safe return of her diamond earrings after she accidentally handed them into a charity shop.
The Dalkeith woman donated several bags of items to four charity shops in the town, and believes the earrings may have been tucked away in a black leather handbag.
The single diamond earrings, which have a loose gold petal round the outside, were left to the woman – who asked to remain anonymous – by her mother.
She has now appealed for their return and said: “I have turned the house upside down several times looking for them.
“My mother left me them so they are very important to me.”
She added: “I would give someone a reward for their return.”
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the earrings is asked to call 07759319832.
