    Hi all,

    I really like and enjoy jewellery. My 18th birthday present from my parents to me was a gold neck chain. I loved it. I never took it off because I'm incredibly forgetful and I knew that I would misplace it in a drawer or something and lose it.

    In a club in London last night, it was snatched from my neck. The clasp on the back of the chain was weak and it broke as soon as the thief pulled hard enough. I am devastated that it has been stolen from me not just for the market value of the chain itself, but also the sentimental value.

    I went through the usual procedure of reporting the theft to the police and the security of the club. Whether this will have any effect, nobody knows for sure yet.

    I'm not looking for sympathy or anything... just wondering whether anybody has any tips for these kind of situations? What could I have done differently? I am kinda scared for my phone now as well...

    not going to blame you, I have done similar things as well. it is worth making sure the clasp is secure on all your jewellery and maybe keeping a little pouch of pocket to put into your handbag in a zip if youre going out, make a conscious effort to think about it

    Your title reminded of the Run DMC music video It’s tricky😂 Anyways I’m sorry that this happened, maybe you should consider replacing it yourself as most likely it won’t be found. Sorry for being negative but that’s probs what’s gonna happen. However I hope it does get found!!!!
