Being cheated on sucks. The insecurity, the anger, the effort it takes to burn down his house … it’s all the pits. And while we wouldn’t wish that on anyone, one English woman found a way to lessen the sting a bit, by demanding diamonds from her spouse every time it happened.
Elizabeth Charlton was married to her husband for 26 years. During that time, she gathered more than half a million dollars of “I’m Sorry” jewelry. From big ‘ol diamond necklaces to brooches, rings and bracelets, the girl accessorized her embarrassment well. So well, in fact, that a selection of 43 pieces just sold for a collective 300,000 British pounds at auction. Would you trade your husband’s infidelity for boatloads of bitchin’ jewelry? [Daily Mail]
