According to police reports, Cherish purchased the jewellery nearly two years ago. The seller, a father-son duo running the shop, allegedly provided a fake authenticity certificate to assure the tourist of the pieces’ value. Thrilled with her purchase, Cherish returned to the US with the jewellery.

However, the truth came to light when Cherish displayed the pieces at an exhibition back home. Experts there identified the jewellery as mere imitation, worth a measly Rs 300.

Devastated by the discovery, Cherish returned to Jaipur to confront the shopkeepers. She reported that the shop owner, Gaurav Soni, dismissed her claims and refused to acknowledge the fraud. Undeterred, Cherish filed a complaint with the Manak Chowk police station.

The case gained momentum after Cherish sought help from the US Embassy in India. The Jaipur Police launched an investigation, which revealed the alleged scam. Police discovered that the certificate provided by the shop was fake, and a separate arrest has been made in connection with its creation.
