A woman pretending to try a gold ring on her finger at a jewellery shop in Jordan waited for the owner to use a calculator then picked another ring and swallowed it.
The woman did this in front of the shop owner who was busy with the calculator.
Her act was so quick that the man thought the ring fell under the box, not suspecting the woman who was still holding another ring in her hand.
A YouTube film published in regional newspaper showed an argument ensued at the shop in Amman and the woman, as if to underscore her innocence, appeared furious by the owner’s question about the ring.
The film shows the woman angrily opening her bag and pushing it towards the owner while she appearing to be willing to be searched.
