NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Franklin woman’s week has gone from very bad to very good.
On Monday, Kristen Davis was at Vanderbilt University Medical Center with her sick toddler. While talking to a doctor in the waiting room, a thief stole her purse containing cash and her wedding ring.
On Friday, Shane Co. gave her a comparable diamond ring to replace the one that was stolen.
Upon meeting Davis, her baby Claire and Davis’ mother, the company manager Rick Kyle said, “We were really touched by your story.”
From that moment on, it was off to the jewelry counter where Kyle sized Davis for a new diamond ring.
When the ring was placed on her finger, Davis became emotional.
“That’s absolutely beautiful. That’s gorgeous. This is something very joyous and we can’t say thank you enough,” she said.
Kyle said the company wanted to soften the blow the Davis family has gone through over the last 18 months with baby Claire’s heart ailments and recent bout with cancer.
“Nashville’s been very supportive to us over the years, loyal to us, and we wanted to pay it forward,” explained Kyle.
Toward the end of the fitting, Davis realized what started as a very bad week ended on a high note.
“It’s overwhelming,” she said. “Very emotional. Very overwhelming. Just so grateful and appreciative. There are in fact some really good people in the world and this is incredible.”
Vanderbilt police are continuing to investigate the crime and are following up on leads in the case.
