A man in Mexico recently gave his girlfriend a necklace that he had found at a store in another country.
The man, who goes by the name Carlos, told the Post that he took the necklace home with him and he decided to give it to his girlfriend, who is American.
Carlos told the paper that he didn’t want her to know what he did to it.
“When I went home, I gave it to my girlfriend and said, ‘I’ll be back tomorrow,'” Carlos said.
“She looked at it and was like, ‘That’s not a necklace.'”
He told the newspaper that he thought the necklace might be an old wedding band.
“She asked me, ‘Is that a wedding band?’
I said, no, and I just gave her the necklace,” Carlos said, adding that he also took it with him on a trip to the United States.
Carlos said that he wanted to tell his girlfriend that he loved her.
He told local media that the necklace is made of a rare, beautiful stone, and that it has a sentimental value.
“I want to tell her that I am very grateful that she came here, because she is very beautiful and she is really special to me,” Carlos told local newspaper La Jornada.
In August, a man in Guatemala said he gave his wife a necklace he found in Mexico.
An American tourist from California named Ryan said that his wife gave him a necklace with a picture of a tree and a heart that belonged to his wife, whom he said he has known for two years.
Ryan told local news outlet ABC News that he decided not to tell the family about the necklace because he believed it was a gift.
