All that glitters isn't... ours

We have been blessed with many visitors at Chez Treppenwitz over the years.  Some have been old friends who have come for a Shabbat, and others have been more recent acquaintances or even readers who have made the leap from virtual to real life friends. 

However one thing almost all of the guests have in common is that they invariably leave something behind.  Sometimes it is an article of clothing or a book.  Other times it is a pair of glasses or a Hanukia (menorah).

Most of the time we find these things within hours (or even minutes) of our guest's departure and we are able to reunite them with their lost property almost immediately.  Other times it can be days or weeks before we stumble upon something that looks 'out of place' and have to use traveling friends as couriers of lost property. 

But the pre-Passover cleaning is a time when many things come to light that clearly aren't ours... but we have no idea to whom they might belong.

Such is the case with a couple of pieces of Jewelry that were found yesterday while excavating our guest room.  One is a bracelet and the other is a necklace.  They weren't found together, so I doubt they belong to the same person... but if you have been a guest in our house and are missing either a bracelet or a necklace, please let me know.

Full disclosure: the pieces were not found together, and there were more than 2.

We found 4 items in total:
1 fine jewelery necklace
1 good quality "fashion" jewelry bracelet
1 costume bracelet
1 costume ring

We would very much like to return them all to their rightful owners!

Well, we didn't lose anything at your home, but we lost an earing in Eli, a different earing in Beit Shemesh, and a necklace in Dolev. To date, only the necklace has been found and returned.
